What's My Line?

August 28, 2017

It's been a minute right? Life happens, what can I say but I'm back and excited to announce that I have started filming for my first staring role in a webseries, Broke AF! If you don't know what a webseries is no worries, just think...it's a tv show on the internet (that was pretty simple). It is definitely a different  experience from my first time on camera *cough, cough* "12 Years a Slave" but that's another story for another day. Let's just say going from a glorified featured extra to a person who actually gets a mic is an exhilarating moment in your career because now you are the most important person. 

 

The morning of filming of course I was an overly excited actor who woke up extra early so I could just go over my lines one more time and make sure that all of my wardrobe and makeup was together and ready to go. I got in my car and made my way to set with butterflies in my stomach but as I walked through the front door I calmed down a little, but I think that may have had more to do with the fact that there was breakfast waiting for me because in my nervousness I realized I hadn't eaten anything all morning. Well that morning that breakfast and I got real acquainted. With food in my belly I decided maybe I should look at my lines just "one more time" as I waited fro the other actors to get ready. The next thing I knew it was time to film and I was being mic'd, lighting was being adjusted so that in all my chocolate glory you could actually see me on camera and I thought to myself "wow so this is what it feels like". Then they yelled action and I promptly forgot my lines. So much for going over my lines just "one more time". I had to give myself a little pep talk because I knew I had this and nerves were not going to stop me from bringing life to this character. Once I got myself together the rest was history. I relaxed, improvised and tried my best to use all the skills I learned in my on camera class. I even got to watch some playback of some of my scenes and I was actually impressed and I can't wait to see the finished product.

 

Sometimes you have to step back from your day to day and realize that you are getting a chance to live your dreams, especially in a industry where we receive more no's than yes. So take a deep breathe when they say action and if you have to say "What's my line?".
