Where to start if your child wants to be an actor… Part one

As I mentioned last week, our first step on our family’s acting journey was seeking out representation, meaning finding an agent. I say family, even though only Elizabeth is acting, because it takes a village, people. It really does. While finding an agent was our first step, it might not be the “right” first step for your family. I wouldn’t have even considered seeking out an agent if my best friend, who’s a makeup artist in California, hadn’t suggested it. Elizabeth was pretty young when Heyman Talent signed her. They… Read more Where to start if your child wants to be an actor… Part one

My friend is going to Sundance!

We are so excited for Elizabeth’s sweet friend, Morgan Pyle, who’s starring in the new film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile – the Ted Bundy biopic starring Zac Efron and Lily Collins. Morgan plays Molly, Collins’ daughter, in the film. AND — She’s heading to the Sundance Film Festival this weekend for the premiere! Amaaaaaaazing! We are so thrilled for her and her family! She is such a hard-working and talented young actress, and a super-great kid, to boot. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for you,… Read more My friend is going to Sundance!

How Elizabeth started acting…

While I feel like we’re just starting this journey and are far from experts, I’m often asked how this all started for Elizabeth. I always try to help those who ask in any way I can, but I only know what we’ve experienced. So hopefully this will help you and your child, if he/she has been showing an interest in acting. The answer to how she got started is pretty simple. We met with a local agent, and he signed her. Elizabeth is primarily represented by Heyman Talent Agency. Since… Read more How Elizabeth started acting…

A New Adventure…

2018 was a HUGE year for Elizabeth. Not only did she turn 7, but she started at a new school, which she loves, and she booked a TON of jobs. I swear, her resume looks better than mine, and I’m a college graduate! When I look at it, it seems crazy that a 7-year-old has a page-long resume! What in the world?! As I mentioned in the last post, we second-guess this all of the time, especially when it comes to missing school. Some of my friends will be like,… Read more A New Adventure…

To homeschool…or not?

As parents, we worry and second-guess things all too often. We love our kids, and we want the best for them. We’re always wondering, “Am I doing the right thing for my child?”  We’ve questioned this acting thing multiple times over the past couple of years, and we’ve taken breaks from auditioning when it just didn’t feel right. Deciding on whether or not WE want Elizabeth to audition for a project is the very first step, and it’s just what works for our family. There have been a handful of… Read more To homeschool…or not?
