"The label you give yourself cannot impact external forces that are not motivated by your own psychology or influenced by a third party's pre-existing consciousness of you. We are all presented with reasons to struggle which come from completely external forces; to pretend that one is not struggling is either arrogance or an admission of defeat. To admit that one is struggling is a sign and a source of strength." - Evan A. Baker

When you're up against 200 other girls for every single acting job interview you go on, it sometimes feels as if you and every one you know are never booking work. My friends (save for JenIsBetterThanAndreaAnders) are pretty much at my same level; not going out for pilots. I'm not complaining that I'm not, as you know, that's de rigeur for me every fevrier, but I got an email the other day from a Working Actress.

She's new to the blogging scene and a friend of hers stumbled upon mine while trying to find hers. Friend said, hey Working Actress, check out Struggling Actress.

And Working Actress took the time to compliment this here little blog.

She never told me her name, but each one of her blogs is so EXCITING! She doesn't wait tables, she doesn't have any other side job. All she does is ACT.

So of course I'm following her! I think you should too! She's choosing to remain anonymous so it's also fun to try and figure out who exactly she is. Regardless, if you're following my exploits, you should definitely follow hers.

If I keep at it, maybe my blogs will soon sound more and more like hers.

(My favorite of hers is how the execs of one show she did complimented her work and she learned how they cast her. Casting REALLY is like this!)

  1. Yay for a cool new blog! I'll definitely follow.

    Try going out for Entourage auditions...when you're 5'4, pale, and not even remotely goddess looking, next to 5'9, bronzed goddesses with perfect hair.

    Ah, optimism, you endangered thing...


Play nice.
