Just wanted to say hello.
Things are going well here. I’m seeing an uptick in the castings coming to me from nine9.com agency and that’s always nice.
Some of the castings just aren’t right for me though. I’m 60. Big deal, right? That’s what I say! But, for some reason, the Powers That Be in movie and TV production, want to attempt to put me in a category. Just one category? Are they kidding?
Well, that makes it hard for me. So, you could say that my age is a hindrance in that way. Don’t fear though, my friends, I’m not ever giving up!
Where I fit…..
There are many possibilities for me at this age, and at my fitness level, and with my appearance and all of that. Here’s a list of some of them, and of course I’m going to put my favorites at the top!
Spy or Detective – I had to put those two together even though they are not the same type of character. I’d be a great spy character. I look nice, not harmful at all, so I’d be a good fit for that sweet-looking woman who in reality is a highly trained agent. I’d be a good detective too. OK, I do look great in a suit, a business suit in case you’re wondering, but beyond that, I have a good if not great ability to dig for facts in real-life and I can do as much or as little improvisation as requested. Also, I have good comedic timing and a natural sense of fun and humor. I’d be ideal for a spy-spoof or detective-spoof kind of thing.
Designer, Antiques Dealer, Successful Businesswoman – Any of these are right up my street as well. I have a strong artistic side and a good head for business as well so I can assume either role very comfortably. As for the antiques dealer that would be a plum role of all plum roles for me. I am a history buff, love ancient history, and know my way around an auction – live or online.
Doctor, Lawyer, Politician – Any or all of them fit. I have absolutely NO fear when it comes to speaking in front of a crowd, so please put me behind a podium and turn on that mic! I’d be a happy actress!
Woman With A Cause – Absolutely. I have an autistic son and I plan to get a non-profit off the ground in the next year — so I know causes let me tell you!
My photoshoot that is long, long, long over due. As many of you may have already read, I have been doing some subtle but quite nice cosmetic procedures to my face since June so I didn’t want to get in front of the camera until I was ready. That should be soon. The end of 2017 or the very beginning of 2018. It will be worth waiting for, is all I can say. I plan to rock it!
And, once I get in front of the camera again, I never plan to go back. I’ll be making videos and talking to you vis-à-vis – which has been my aim all along!
Take care everyone – and I’ll be back soon!
