I’m going to be on The Reel Deal…thanks to you!
It’s over a month ago now, but I still had to share: I’m going to be on The Reel Deal, and it’s thanks to you!!!
Throughout the day on May 29th, the cast announcements for “The Reel Deal” were being made on Twitter. It was wonderful to see so many friends and colleagues get cast as actors, directors, writers and composers for the show, and throughout the voting process, the contestants really have formed a supportive family. At just before 1:30 PM Pacific, I was announced as one of twenty-six actors to be on the show. From 27,000 audition tapes (bless the producers and all of their viewing!), I am 1 of 26. I am completely honored to be taking part. Yes, I took a screengrab of the Twitter announcement.
I was on my way back to the East Coast on a red eye flight that night, and while I was sleep-deprived but excited and on my layover in New York, I wrote this:
This has already been such a fantastic journey so far, and I can’t wait to see where it leads. Thank you to everyone who voted and Squerbed for me to get onto the show; I can’t tell you how much I appreciate you taking the time and effort to do this. Thank you to Adryenn Ashley, Bonnie Gillespie, Tina Davis, Jenneisha and all of the guys from Squerb (Chris, Rob and Derek) for getting me into the show. I’m so excited and grateful for the opportunity.
Even though I was sleep-deprived, the gratitude and excitement still stand. Thank you for your support to get this far…I can’t wait to see what happens next.
(and for those interested in what Squerb-ing was all about, here’s what they came up with)
