Happy new year!
I haven't gotten a chance to update here in a while. I got caught up with the holidays and haven't been booking much lately.
However, there were two projects that I am excited to talk about. The first is a shoot I did for HBO! I got cast as a background extra for HBO's new show Vinyl. This was the first major shoot I've done for a network and it was crazy. There was a fitting at Steiner Studios and it felt pretty cool to be walking around a film set one morning. I was in the same building where they shot shows like Gotham and Blindspot! A week after the fitting we shot the scene. It was a bar scene done during a concert so the production was huge. There were over a hundred of us!! They picked up us at 6am in lower manhattan and drove us all out to the shipping yards in Red Hook, Brooklyn. There they ushered us through hair, makeup and wardrobe and then we sat in a tent for most of the day. But I got to make lots of friends which is always fun. We would go back and forth on set as they needed us, and film bits and pieces slowly. 5 pages of lines took us 16 hours to shoot. I was exhausted by the time the day was over. But it was great, I got a real feel for what a proper film set is like, and it makes me excited for future projects. Look for me in the final episode!
The other project I'm really excited about is a television show called Living in Exile. It is a low budget project that I had the pleasure of working on this summer and fall. Already in season two, Living in Exile looks incredibly promising and already has over 4 million views. My character, Maria, is a Horror Film star, and a lesbian. The show is all about wacky couples and me and my girlfriend, Claudia, are the backbone of the show in that our relationship is normal. The first season is already out (my character is not played by me, they recast after season one and that is how I got the opportunity. You can watch the show here!
Really cant wait for these projects to come out!
