"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

It Is A Small World

Every once in a while I get a lovely email from one of my readers (that'd be one of YOU guys!).

The other day, I got an email from John who recognized me in another actress's reel! He said he had been doing some research and came across her reel and checked it out, recognized me and laughed out loud. He sent me her link, and yup! There I was!

This is especially fantastic because I shot this commercial a year ago and although I've had a few friends tell me they had seen it recently, I still hadn't. I asked the actress, Trisha, if she could forward me the information of who to contact to get my own copy, but she did me one better and sent along the entire full commercial!

Also awesome - John had also seen me in the Haunting of Winchester House and said that a lot of his friends had worked for Asylum, the production company. On Haunting in particular, the sound guy Ben, was a friend of his.

How small is this world? I had worked with Ben at Cafe Tu Tu Tango a few years prior for a few years! I knew Ben very well and was very excited to see him on set!

Anyways, without further ado, here's the commercial!

How small is this world, really, you ask? The guy in the commercial is named Sean and we went to college together. The world really is tiny!


Play nice.
