Nice Visit

Some updates and Shout Outs!

Dear parents and Young Actors,

I had a nice visit yesterday with 17 year old
Bo Mitchell, who just finished a multi-year stint
as Wayne Powers on EASTBOUND AND DOWN for HBO.

“These guys would just throw the script away and
improv.” said Bo, “so I had to be sharp with those
guys.”

Working with heavyweights like Danny McBride, Will
Ferrell and Lily Tomlin gave Bo new insights into how
hard these stars work to stay sharp and current.

Welcome back Bo, it’s great to see you.

*PINS AND NEEDLES:

Beginning MONDAY, next week, the networks announce
their show pickups for next season.

The network upfronts are always a good motivation
to GET INTO CLASS and GET MOTIVATED, because there are
so many shows, new and old, who are gearing up for the
busy episodic season.

That means NEW series regulars, so if you aren’t sharp
then you hurt your chances.

If you fail to prepare, you prepare to fail.

Actorsite FAST TRACK classes are PROVEN ways to stay
sharp, with 22 pilot series regular roles booked this
year alone! And only $97 per month. A bargain.

SHOUT OUTS:
When visiting with Bo Mitchell, he asked about some
of the others who were at Actorsite when he was here.

Here are some updates on them…

*A huge shout out to SHELBY YOUNG, starring on
AMERICAN HORROR STORY, and, of course her feature films,
like THE SOCIAL NETWORK, WILD CHILD, and the upcoming
THE MIDNIGHT GAME.

Plus we loved her on DAYS OF OUR LIVES, and her guest
stints on AWKWARD (with Actorsiters Ashley Rickards and
Jillian Rose Reed), GHOST WHISPERER, and EVERYBODY HATES
CHRIS.

And a special shout out to her Mom, Melinda Taubman, who guided
her to success through the early years. Nice.

*A shout out to ASHLEY RICKARDS, who is starring in the
upcoming SASSY PANTS with Haley Joel Osment, as well as
the hit MTV series AWKWARD where she stars as Jenna
Hamilton.

We remember her from ONE TREE HILL, where she played
Samantha Walker, and also she has guest starred on shows
like AMERICAN HORROR STORY, OUTLAW, ENTOURAGE, and UGLY
BETTY.

And a huge shout out to her mom Lisa Rickards, who
provided support and guidance through the early years.

Nice.

*And a shootout to JILLIAN ROSE REED, who also is
starring on AWKWARD, and we’re watching for her film
MY SUPER PSYCHO SWEET 16: PART 3.
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2882358/

In the small world department, she stars on AWKWARD
with Actorsiter Ashley Rickards who starred on
ONE TREE HILL with Actorsiter Kelsey Chow. And
Jillian guest starred on Kelsey’s show, PAIR OF KINGS
for DISNEY, so it shows how small a world Hollywood is.

Jillian also guest starred on shows like COMMUNITY,
THE MIDDLE and several seasons of the hit show WEEDS.

And a huge shout out to her MOM, Lisa Reed-Tucker who
has been there to provide support and encouragement
during the slow times.

Here’s what she says about Actorsite (2010):

“The kids have both been very busy……we hope to be
back to Actorsite soon!

Will never forget how Robbie booked his very first
Prime Time episodic ‘Criminal Minds’ after taking Actorsite
TV DRAMA Training……and how other
training has opened doors for Robbie & Jillian! You guys ROCK!!!

YOU ROCK, LISA.

*So let’s shout out to ROBBIE TUCKER, who is starring
on THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS as Fenmore Baldwin, plus
he just finished the DISNEY PILOT, PACK OF WOLVES, and
had nice roles in films like HOP and PROM.

GOOD JOB ROBBIE.

And a second GOOD JOB to your Mom, Lisa.

ACTORSITE TRAINING PAYS OFF!

Actorsite Training pays off in big ways for young actors.

As many of you know, I have been coaching for over 20 years and
I have designed a program that is a roadmap to success for
young actors and their parents…the success of Actorsiters
is the proof!

It involves:

1. Consistent acting workouts so that each young actor has a strong
fundamental basis for their acting skills.

Each workout  may include exercises for:

Voice and Diction
Improvisation
Emotional Memory
Sensory
Repetition
Imagination
Scene Performance
Audition skills
On-Camera Practice
Voice Over Practice

So each young actor is well-rounded so they can become
CALLBACK KINGS(and QUEENS) and, more importantly, BOOKERS!

2. EDUCATIONAL INDUSTRY WORKSHOPS, so each young actor can
learn and grow under the guidance of industry professionals.

3. Parental Support: Parents can network and learn from others
and use Actorsite to filter out the “noise” that some high-maintenance
parents create. In this business sometimes the noise and
distractions of mean gossip and parent confusion is deafening.

3. Marketing help, so each young actor doesn’t sit home waiting for
their agent and manager to wake up to their abilities…
parents SEIZE control of their child’s career rather than
“waiting” for something to happen…it’s easy and it’s
effective! NICE!

ACTORSITE SUCCESSES KEEP PILING UP!

Actorsite FAST TRACK classes are PROVEN ways to stay
sharp, with 22 pilot series regular roles booked this
year alone! And only $97 per month. A super deal.
