Diaries of an Actress: Catching You Up on the All the Goodness
A lot has happened since my autumn diary entry. I’ve spent the new year beginning to make my film idea a reality. The feature script I’m writing (starring yours truly, of course) is nearing completion! And more film ideas are waiting to come down the pike.
Last month, I booked and filmed a supporting role in a SAG film “But Not for Me” by Emmy-winning producer Jason Stefaniak. What else? Well, there was another supporting role in “Keep the Party Going.” Then there was shooting the teaser for a feature film in which I play the title character. I’m pictured with my co-star below.
I got a callback for a feature film in the vein of “Blue Valentine” and “Half Nelson,” two of my top three favorite movies! The process came down to me and one other actress in a chemistry read with two finalist actors. I got added to an IMDB list. An “Orange is the New Black” audition and praise from an actress recurring on the show (Vicky Jeudy as Janae Watson) on my work in our acting class.
My first film ever, “First Baptist,” premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival. A co-star role on “Deadly Sins” to air on cable’s Discovery Investigation Channel. See the pic of the house where we filmed on Instagram. A birthday trip to San Francisco back in October.
Last, but not least – a turn as Catwoman on Halloween (check it out on Instagram: @IndiaKiara).
