Extra, Extra, Extra...

Everyone knows that the second best thing about being on set is the food...the BEST thing of course, is being on set! There is a film called REMNANTS being shot in the area and they needed some extras for one of the final scenes. It was very last minute but I jumped on the chance immediately. Glad I was just me and one other girl, so you know what that means!!! We got to see all the action. We watched some scenes from previous days, hung out with the actors and crew, made some new friends, and got great face-time in the scene! What a great day, such talented folks!

Faking It...When Harry Met Sally moment

Imagine sitting in a room with 10 other people. All of us facing forward. Everyone fully clothed and you're instructed to fake an orgasm. Not to mention the fact that you are acutely aware of the other people in the room, the lights are on, so they can clearly see your face. Believe me, you have never felt so exposed in your life. And when all eyes in the room are on you, you can't help but blush. No, I wasn't at some couples retreat. This wasn't some type of therapy. It was an acting class and we were working on the leading moments before a scene. I am in awe and amazement at how easy Meg Ryan makes this all look. That's what it's all about...acting. Making it all look real without actually having to recreate the exact scenario, whatever that may be.
