It seems like every day there is something new. Uggh, I am sick to my stomach and sweat every time the phone rings..

I recently cancelled a subcription with ExploreTalent.com but obviously before I cancelled someone saw my profile and just called today. They are undergoing ideas for a new Disney television series and apartent I fit one of their slots. The only thing that seems odd is that they don't need me to use my agent.. hmm..

Sidenote: I have never watched the Disney Channel without being forced against my will, so we shall see how stupid of a part I audition for.

If you take it, be warned: Many, many former Disney Channel stars have had one of two things happen to them:
1) They get horribly type-cast (Hilary Duff, anyone?)
2) They are whisked into obscurity and only do either LifeTime TV movies, or direct-to-video movies, possibly the occasional Disney Channel Original Movie until their star presence wears thin

But there are some who have broken the trend and actually made a name for themselves. Maiara Walsh, for instance, started out with a supporting role on Corey in the House . Guess who she is now? She's Ana Solis on Desperate Housewives .
Anyone who thinks Canadians are meek and mild-mannered has obviously never seen us during Question Period!

Suddenly I'm told by my agent that I need to prepare a one minute monologue. (I can do that). I need to do a play with some other actors. (Ok, I'm quick at memorizing). This will all take place on Sunday. (What the #*@%). Oh and I need a couple 8x10 photos of myself. (Uhh we don't have any recent ones)

Ok, I'm currently enduring one heart attack after the other. Who ever labeled this lifestyle "Living the Dream" needs to take a closer look at the daily hell one endures...

Are you passionate about the whole acting thing though? You certainly find a lot to complain about.

I'm on the edge. I was more excited about it a couple months ago. Now my parents seem to be forcing it on me. It can be quite stressful..

I love acting, but as a job? No thanks. What would I do for fun?

I'm auditioning for a short film about a vandalizing teen who is being stalked by a 30 year old woman. I'm nervous at *beep*...

Well the audition went a little different than I expected. All the other boys who tried out for the part had to do it over after the director gave them instructions. He just smiled at me and said thank you. :)

Haha thanks guys! It's like winning one of the five golden tickets! And why in the world would I forget you guys! I come here every day. :)

VIP list for Villa. Perhaps red carpet shoots ;)

I'm trying not to count my chickens before they hatch. My agent says that Frederick Levy (the director in charge) put me on a list that directors go to when they want new actors.
