Landing the Role of Kate

A chronicle of my actventures

Kate is Cast, and I’m not it

Well, the role of Kate has officially been cast. Casey LaBow will be playing the character for Breaking Dawn I&II.  Admittedly she looks much more like the described character than I do, but to be fair to my aspirations, the character of Jessica Stanley is described as completely different looking than is portrayed by actress Anna Kendrick.  Laurent’s character is even further from looking as described in the book, and etc.

Hopefully she will rock the role! I am excited for the film to come out, even though it’s going to be happening all the way in fall 2011! That’s forever away.  I’ve never heard of her, but I did some research. Looks like she’s not done too much. Started acting, well at least in a big enough piece to be marked down, in 2005. Her most notable appearances seem to be 3 episodes on CSI, and what’s coming up in the news the most is that she’s dating (or started dating) Ryan Gosling. Of course, now that she’s part of the Twilight franchise, I’m sure her descriptor will become “played the role of Denali sister Kate in the fourth installment of the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn”, not that she’s dated Gosling. C’est la vie.

The rest of the Denali clan has also been cast. Tanya will be played by MyAnna Buring and Irinia by Mia Maestro.  I think Mia Maestro looks more like the Kate I envisioned than LaBow does, but oh well. I’m not the CD, am I? Heh. The full(er) article can be found <a href=””>here</a&gt;. Though I’m not sure why they say Tanya is Bella’s rival, there’s really not any tension there at all in the story. Water under the Sol Duc River bridge and all.

So, that’s that. End of quest.  It’s been great though, it really has. I know I’ve been into all that already when I announced that I was going to quit actively pursuing this role, but I am really glad that I embarked on this fun journey and I’m glad to have been able to share it with my (at one time many) readers.

America’s Next Top Model

So, I’ve decided to go to the open casting call for America’s Next Top Model. I don’t think I’ll make it onto the show, but if I do, the goal is to get to be in the top 6 so that I can get a free trip abroad. The top 6 almost always get to go somewhere abroad (yes, I watch the show. Not religiously, but enough). Obviously winning would be a goal, but let’s not kid ourselves here, just making it into the semi-finals of getting onto the show will be hard enough. The main problem is the height restriction. To be eligible you have to be 5’7″ or taller, which I am not. However, the nomenclature is actually as follows:

(PLEASE NOTE:  You must be AT OR ABOVE five feet and seven inches [5’7”] in height to be
eligible, although Producers reserve the right to make case-by-case exceptions.  However, the
Producers are looking for a variety of models, including plus size models.)

So, while I am not quite 5’7″, perhaps I can make it into the “case-by-case exception”. One never knows! Continue reading

Mama Said There’d Be Days Like This

I’m back from my audition and I’m at a loss for words. First, let’s say two things: 1) I didn’t actually audition 2) He’d already cast the role (you know, the one he said I was perfect for).

I’m going to recount some of the experience to you, but first I need to give you a brief look at some of my personal history. I know I never get personal on here, which is intentional, but today it is absolutely necessary. Why? I don’t want you to miss what a fantastic experience I had today. I want you to be able to relate in some way. I wish you all could’ve been there and we could’ve grabbed coffee afterward and laughed together. If it seems like I’m sounding pretentious or something like that, good. Let’s get into that frame of mind. ::wink wink:: Continue reading

Cold With A Chance of Reading

Okay, super lame title today, but I’m feeling chilly and I have another audition tomorrow that is, you guessed it, a cold reading. It’s my first cold reading audition (I know I’ve only been to one audition, but I did prepare for that other audition as the developmentally delayed character despite not actually going to it). Let’s just say I’m really nervous.

More after the cut. Continue reading

And the winner is…

So, just like almost every other blog in the world, of course I have to throw in an Oscars theme today. But instead of discussing the crossing at the waist, long trained, soft colored dresses and how my boyfriend loves Michael Giacchino even more after his speech and how lovely I find Michael Sheen (er, whoops, how did that slip in there?), I’m going to keep it to topic of this blog.

So, who is the winner then? Find out after the cut. Continue reading
