March Motivation

Dear Parents and Young Actors,

It (usually) takes years of practice and tons of perseverance to
build an acting career. That’s why we recommend that you
start as young as possible at the Actorsite!

Here is some news about some Actorsiters!

First a letter from Janet Prentice, mom of Justin
Prentice, who just booked a starring role as CASH in a new
sitcom MALIBU COUNTRY starring Reba McIntyre.

“Thanks Jack for that shoutout to Justin. More importantly, thanks for
mentioning it takes time and sometimes a lot of time to book roles. You
have said many times that the actors that don’t make it are the one’s
that give up. It takes persistence….and a lot of it. I understand that
some may book quickly, but I hope pple understand that is not the norm
in this industry. For most actors, and I speak mainly for Justin, it has
taken extremely hard work, numerous auditions, tons of patience, and just
the hard drive and passion to keep moving forward and the word “quit”
never being in your vocabulary. Its definitely a LOVE that is indescribable.

Thanks again for the shoutout…it means so much!!!
Janet Prentice”

YOU ROCK, JANET! And we all are proud of JUSTIN!

***Second, a shout out to Shayna Brooke Chapman, who  booked the role
of “Kale” for the new tv webseries Candyland

And, Shayna and her sister Mikayla just interviewed Casting
Director Dana Gergely at Actorsite…super!

“Hi Jack, thought you may enjoy watching Mikayla and Shayna’s
interview with Dana Gergely.

Great workshop! Thank you!
