I began to question myself, and worse, I began to question my agent. It’s difficult to know whether or not we’re being submitted. I self-submit also. I just like to make sure my bases are covered and I also like my agent to know, I’m hands-on when it comes to my career. They get 10% of the money because they do 10% of the work. With that in mind, I consulted the help of a good friend. She gave me some really sound advice: Make sure you are doing everything in your power for your own career first. She asked if my pictures were updated. She asked if I was in class and taking worskhops. My pictures are always pretty recent (I love a good photoshoot), but because they cost to upload, I don’t have as many as I could on my profiles.
And then I approached my agent about what else I could do to get on one of these shows. She gave me their address in Tennessee so I could submit my headshots tangibly but also let me know that they cast according to looks. They produce many reenactment shows so they want the actors to look like the people in the stories. That part is just out of my hands. I sent the headshots anyway, uploaded the last picture that got a bunch of likes on Instagram and within less than a week, I got booked on Fatal Attraction. Imagine my excitement.
