I am 18 years old just starting out my life and I don’t really know what I am going to do yet. I have always considered acting but I never am sure if I am cut out for it.

  23. Abbasi

    I am from East Asian region and my looks are that of the Middle Eastern heritage. Most people don’t even believe me when i tell them that i am not middle eastern. I have lived there and grew up in the middle of all the turmoil and tragedy. Walked past a suicide bombing and stood right up. Kept walking as if nothing happened because it was a daily routine at one point. I understand the culture and how the society works. Deep understanding of the problems and issues of the Middle East.

    I think i will fit a role of any Middle Eastern youth.

    I am 24, 140 lbs, athletic build, bearded. 5 feet 10.

  24. Jamar

  27. Mikayla Moore

    Hi I am mikayla moore. Your movie sounds really good, and I would be honored to be a part of it. Weather the roll was small or big. I would be so excited to be a part of it. I don’t have much film experience, but I do have a lot of theater experience. I beleve that everyone has to start some where though, so even being a background or small role person, would be huge for me. I can play charecters probably from ages 12-15 give or take a little. I will always have fun with a role no matter what. I can sing and dance. I have been acting since 4th grade. My first play was Beauty and the Beast, I was Belle. It is my dream to be a film actress, and being a part of your movie would be amazing. I am very hard working and outgoing, I always will try my best no matter how big the challenge. I can be shy when you first meet me, but after I am comfortable I just might not shut up. I know many people have applied, lots very good actors. But, I believe, if you give me a chance you won’t regret it, and find I am ver qualified. Thank you for taking the time to read this, I hope to be in contact with you soon. If you need to contact me please contact me at
