It’s gonna be a super productive evening. I can feel it!
I tried so hard to get a part on this show as it is filmed in Vancouver. My efforts of setting up a covert lemonade stand outside of Starbuck’s condo did not yield the results I had been hoping for. On the plus side, I made $1.45.
I did, however, turn down opportunities to be an extra and get on the uber set, only cuz it’s kind of an unspoken given in the industry that if you are seen on camera as an extra (especially if you are featured), you won’t get cast in a speaking role later on. You’ve already blown your screentime and most uber fans of the show will recognize you. They’ll say,
“Hey didn’t that girl play the third, three-headed dragon keeper in the dragon vs. fire-eating goblins S1E08? Uhh. They’ve brought her back as the tortured emo vampire lover in S3E10. So lame to recycle actors like that. I bet they thought I wouldn’t figure it out because she’s wearing that big plastic suit and the head piece with those huuuuge horns as the dragon keeper and the fact that there are two other heads. I mean you can’t even see her face. It’s subtle, but I noticed. And it pretty much annoyed me enough to stop watching the show.”
PS. No spoil sporting all you spoiling-type people. I have waiting yonks to see this season in it’s entirety on DVD. And I shall right after I finish this work. *looks around to see if anyone is watching… presses play*
PPS. Check out my best Cylon impression circa June 2006… pre dSLR, hv20s, MB, and twitter. (You can tell cuz I actually have a tan that I got from the sun and not a PS warming filter).
