Hey! My personal profile is going away and I’m now using a public one. Feel free to like it (or don’t) to keep up on projects/news. This is also linked on my site/tumblr underneath my pic.
I’m producing a video short and I promise you’ll enjoy it.
Listen, kid. You should not be an actress. You are not pretty enough. You should go back to wherever you came from and you should go to school. You don’t have it.
Elisabeth Moss at 1:39.
I wish people would stop dumping on her for being a Scientologist. How does Scientology affect mine or anybody else’s life who isn’t a Scientologist? It doesn’t.
Protesting funerals? No.
Screaming their views on corners? No.
Telling people they’re going to Hell? No.
Communities outsiders aren’t allowed to live in? No.
A form of their own law they try to push on outsiders? No.
Types of Extras You Will Find On Set - Film/TV/Commercial/etc.
Sometimes, these are in combinations, i.e, someone is union but also a kvetcher.
Union Actors - A check is a check! They check the clock for meal penalties, overtime and golden time. Hearing there will be smoke on set, their clothes getting wet, etc., is also dollar signs to their ears.
Non-Union - Get paid very little and sometimes, are treated poorly.
Sunset Blvd. - Vain for no reason. They are ready for their close-up! Ultimately, they’re just a blur in the background and yet, are convinced they deserve an Oscar.
Vultures - They will push you out of the way to get to craft services and will use the tables like their own personal grocery store, filling their bag with candy, chips, anything.
LMTFA - Leave me the f alone. Don’t bother ‘em. Headphones and a book.

- Assistant: Melina, we're going to pair you up with two guys. Is that okay?

- Assistant: (jaw dropped)
- Guy: (covering his mouth)
- Me: That's a callback in comedy.
- (it was my best, most fun audition yet so this was all okay and they wanted a funny chick)

Bitter Actress interviews Connor James, a Los Angeles actor.
If you are an actor, you know someone like this.
Bérénice Marlohe is awesome.
Tonight, I went to a SAG Foundation screening + conversation for Skyfall featuring director Sam Mendes, actresses Naomi Harris and Bérénice Marlohe.
Naomi Harris is also awesome (holy stunt work!) but something came up that I want to touch on.
The moderator mentioned that Bérénice had trouble getting the roles she wanted (her background is tv). Bérénice basically said that not having the support of an agent or manager made her more aggressive and resourceful in getting the roles herself.
When the Bond role came up, she felt so drawn to it, that it was her destiny and stopped at nothing until she got a hold of the right casting person. She was perfect for the role and brought so much into her scenes. She did these wonderfully subtle gestures with her face and hands and you just knew she absorbed the history of the character.
