About 10 years ago I started doing extra work in movies, commercials and instructional videos. It is fun, doesn’t pay that well, not very glamorous, but always interesting. It is show biz!
For some time I had a gig once a month.The last work I had was for a dental instructional video. Like I said not very glamorous, I played a woman having a tooth ache. Who knew there is a demand for middle aged, menopausal women?
Timothy Hutton is in town with his series, Leverage. I watched this show and thought it was entertaining but that was before they started filming season 2 here and won’t even give me a call back. The show is a bit slick and hip and maybe menopausal women aren’t right for background, but please, why not? If Timothy’s show doesn’t get picked up for a third season I know the reason. He needed some menopausal aged women background actors for the mass appeal.
Harrison Ford is in town making a movie.I put my game face on and went for the casting call. I have had 6 call backs and 3 postponements. Again this morning in my email and on my home phone and my cell phone, were messages that I was chosen to work in the film. This afternoon I was notified once again, that some one else was cast.
Show Biz is all about rejection, and I can take it, I really can, but this is Harrison Ford! The movie has been shooting for over a month. How many more opportunities will I have to be on set with Harrison? I am getting impatient. The weather is turning warm and I have a hot flash issue. Will I be able to keep my cool and my make-up on if I am on set with Harrison? Keep a positive thought for me, please.
