Yes booked my first Co- Star for the year right before my birthday. The show was The Millers a sticom with live studio audience which I loved. It was a three day booking which was a nice sag rate just in time for the wedding fund. The first day was a table read. I couldn't believe I was sitting at a table reading with beau bridges, Sean Hayes, will arnett, allvwhile director James burrows (created of cheers, Dir of will and grace) was listening on. Then we moved on to blocking rehearsal. That was a Friday my birthday. The weekend my fiance and I headed up to Santa Barbera for the weekend and stayed in an Airbnb location and was cute cozy and quaint. Heading back to set Monday for a camera rehearsal and then lunch. Tuesday was taping day got moved to a dressing room closer to stage that was nice. Mom and fiance got to come and chill in my dressing room before the show and meet some of the cast that was cool for them. Taping time came nailed my scene and came out for my bows. Such a great experience. Love what I do.

I think it depends on the childs interest as well. Much like a parent of a football kid who one day wakes up and decides they want to do another sport or another hobby all together even though they have put so much money into camps and training and programs. Hopefully the kids gets to change their mind. Well I think the same goes for a child actor. When I decided that I wanted to dive full force into a school play and not go on that audition we decided that my training was more important at that stage in my life for my mental development. When I decided I wanted the full college experience to live on campus and just "Do" school I got full support from my mom to take a break from professional show biz. Some might think and have said to me are you crazy why would you stop you were up to a movie a year that was a silly decision to stop. But it wasn't I learned so much about my passions and beliefs outside of show biz in college and then went on to study overseas in Europe which gave me a whole different perspective on the world as well as theater not just in england but we traveled all through spain and scotland during that year. Being at UC Santa Cruz shaped my activist mind and adopting the whole notion of uplifting someone higher than yourself has been one of the best life lessons ever. Going on to New York for grad school at The Actors Studio Drama School at New School University to get my Masters of Fine arts. All of these rich experiences that I might not have gotten if I had shut the world out to chase the next audition at that time in my life. I love acting and I love that I am living in my purpose but I also have few regrets in my development from child to adult because of the freedom to live. Try not to be surrounded my yay sayers. Keep people who you trust around you keep family that have your best interest around. Work hard but don't forget to live so you can look back on a variety of memories.
I have been paying taxes since I was 8, and although I caught the bug at an early age I was not a slave to my profession. Now as an adult getting back into the swing of things in the biz is another story for another time. Until then over and out.
