Very proud Dad

When my daughter was 6 she told me and my wife she wahted to be on Broadway when she grew up.
As she grew, she did Valley Youth Theater, The Herberger, etc.

When she turned 18, she moved to L.A. on her own to chase her dream. (I was VERY nervous about this, my preference was ASU and journalism school.)

At 5'10" its kind of tuff to get a good role due to most leading men are pretty short. That and the competition in Hollywood is unreal.

She has done some runway modeling and print work, a few tv commercials including one for the NFL and landed some TV/movie roles but no speaking parts.

Last year she won the lead in a short film. I thought it was cool but diddnt think much about it cuz honestly I dont know a thing about short films.

It was accepted into some film festivals but I had never heard if them. Last week it was announced it will be shown at CANNES!!!! Now that ive heard of.

Heres the link to the movie trailer.........be nice boys, thats my little girl.



I was very apprehensive of my daughter going to Hollywood and that industry.. But im very proud of her and she has done it on her own. Shes not a star yet but shes on her way.

From a Dad to all the other Dad's, sometimes you gotta just let them chase their dream and trust you raised them to make good descisions.

A movie about a woman taking flak in a male dominated workplace. Thats pretty SJW, but if it lands her other roles I guess.
At least shes not starring in a black lives matters documentary.

Best compliment I think he's ever kinda made so I'll give it to him, sort of...

Thats a tough dream to chase honestly and she's well on her way. Hope it works out really well for her Randy!

Prolly have a better chance of being in the NBA than being a successful actor/actress.

I appreciate all the kind words.

It has been a learning experience for her, my wife and me. We figured you go to L.A. walk in to an agents office and sign up. Unfortunately that is not the case.

She has an agent for commercials and an agent for modeling but she still does not have an agent for acting jobs. She is one voucher away from getting her SAG card which will increase the money substantially. We are hoping this film will help her be "discovered" by an agent.

Heres a funny story and a rude awakening for my daughter............

About 6 months in to to her living over there she auditioned and was cast as an extra in a TV drama. She walks in the first day and sees a HUGE table with a kings buffet. Prime rib, king crab, etc. along with about 20 different drinks to choose from. Thankfully, since she was new, she just sat down and did not approach the table.

After about 10 minutes there are 25 actors in the room and a producer assistant walks in and asks for a show of hands for the union actors (SAG card holders). THREE people raise their hands. The assistant points to the buffet and says have at it. Then he tells the rest of them that the table in the back is for them.

That table had a bowl of brown rice and a pitcher of water with red solo cups.
