I've always loved acting since I was a kid putting on plays every week for my friends and family. People laugh when they ask what my hobbies are and I answer, "Film and Television". It's true. I remember in my 20's I would buy three movie tickets and go to the theatre by myself to watch three films in a row. I loved escaping into film, asking questions about people's character, wondering what kind of life experiences the writers had to create those kinds of stories. There's so much to the world of film and television that I'm fascinated by all of it.
After I completed a full-time acting program, I started to see film and television at an even more in depth level. I'm still whisked away by the story, I'm still fully immersed, but at the same time, I can't help but wonder about the choices that the actor makes? Or take notice of how the score changes my mood or notice the lighting, or camera movement, etc. I absolutely love and appreciate every aspect. There isn't a job too small or too great because it takes the whole team to make it happen. It's a beautiful world of storytelling and everyone has a role.
Some people think that watching television is a waste of time, and it may be true for that person. For me, it's what I enjoy. I'm a little strange, and I know it, people tell me all the time, but I really feel like some of the characters that I watch on TV are like friends, I get a wee invested in them. Maybe it's because I'm a big home body who doesn't socialize much, but boy, do I live in a very happy world.
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all made here. I"m mad. You're mad."
My first bit as a Karate fighting goon! I had a great time with my fight scene. Growing up doing Judo and Karate, this felt in my element, though fighting to win 1st place in a tournament and fighting while being aware of the camera and blocking are two completely different worlds!
