Drama. Drama. Draaaaama. As a young actor, I ate, drank, lived, breathed, dressed, thought, dreamed, became, fantasized, manifested, and performed drama. It was such a passion for me that one of my teachers began calling me actor girl. He would say, “Stop focusing on all the conflict, actor girl.” “Play the scene, actor girl.” “Learn to say ‘yes and’, actor girl.”
I was so enthusiastic, his jibe went over my head and instead I embraced the nickname and became ACTOR GIRL! I hired a graphic designer to develop marketing and branding materials with logos, letterhead, business cards, taglines, and graphics that detailed THE ADVENTURES OF ACTOR GIRL.
It suited me so well and was such fun, everyone started calling me ACTOR GIRL - even my voice over clients. Some of you reading this newsletter will likely remember the eager and determined ACTOR GIRL, as she was my brand for many years, and although I’ve retired her cape and crown she remains within me as enthusiastic and high-flying as ever.
