  5. Mikhayla Dockery

    My name is Mikhayla Dockery, I am 14 and considered quite overweight. I do have advanced classes for my grade and I consider myself to be much more introverted than extroverted. I was born of an interracial couple, so I’m lighter than African American, but I believe I can fit this role well. I am ready to act and would love the part, thank you.

  8. Antiana

    Hello, my name is Antiana Reeves, i am 14 years old from Bridgeport, Connecticut. I’ve been watching “This Is Us” since the very beginning and i would absolutely love to actually be apart of such an amazing show. I feel i would be perfect for this spot because i don’t live with neither of my biological parents. I live with my grandparents, so its kind of like they’ve adopted me. I’ve also been in many plays and i am currently auditioning for the upcoming play “The Lion King”.
    Thank You,

  9. Marissa

  11. Ifeoluwa Olusoga

    Hi, I’m Ifeoluwa Olusoga. I am a African American 12 year old girl, weighting 120-126 lbs and 5’4. I would love this role because i have always wanted to be a actor. I was in my school play twice so i have some dancing and singing experience. I also am bright(in honors algebra in 7th grade, A student), tough and introverted and extroverted, sort of in the middle. I haven’t been in and out of homes but i think i can do a good job acting as if i have. I do have some trust issues from past friendships and so. I have went to a elementary school in Newark, New Jersey but then moved schools. I still live about a minute away from Newark so i could play the role. I tend to be sensitive when it comes to things like family and close-relationships/friendships. I really hope i can audition for this role and get it! My parents even ask if i want to be an actor sometimes because i can put on a show (also fake cry and sorts of things that are like-wise). I have little experience like i said from the school plays but i hope i can perform what skills i have to you! I strive to be an actress like Zendaya or Millie-Bobbie Brown! Thank you for taking your time to read my short paragraph and i hope i will impress you!

    Sincerely, A striving to be actress

  12. Lexi King

    Sorry! I keep forgetting to say this. I am not skinny but not overweight at the same time.


  13. Lexi King

    Also, I didn’t mention this, my parents are divorced so I feel kind of like a foster child. I’m very good at memorizing things.


  14. Lexi King

    I would love to play Lisa. I am Caucasian, but I think I would be perfect for this role. I’m an aspiring child actress, at 11 years old. I have dirty blonde, medium length hair. My eyes are blue. I have no experience with foster homes or anything of that such. I am sensitive, just like Lisa. I am intelligent and tough, like Lisa. I am an extrovert, but I can quickly become an introvert. My skills include piano, recorder, singing, acting, ukelele, and I play volleyball and I’m a swimmer. I live in Missouri. I would love this role. Thank you for taking time out of your day to read this.

  18. Dorcas

    hi I’m really into acting and I think i can act the role of Lisa, I’ll be moving to Washington so I really need the casting location

  19. Marlet Lopez

    Lisa seems as a amazing role to play, thanks to her brightness. I strongly relate to her as it feels like I myself am a foster child, I have never truly lived in a house for multiple years. I often switch between families and countries, making this role even more realistic to me. As of right now this is my third year living in newark, New jersey. Although I do understand the importance of portraying a correctly, I feel like I would do a very good job while doing so.

  25. Naya Zeta

    My name is Naya, and I am currently hoping that I could take part in the production of this season. I am 15 years old and African American. I am 5’5 and weigh 135 pounds. I have had little acting experiences but I do believe that I will be the right person to play the role of Lisa. I am a well-rounded person in the sense that I have two college professors as parents, and that I learned to be happy with living in a home with just my mother, her boyfriend, my sister, and a low income. I was adopted at the age of six and have lived in multiple foster homes. I know how it feels to have your thoughts, and your thoughts alone. Reading is my number one hobby other than singing. My parents taught me to be mature and focus on the things that I want to accomplish in life. I know that most girls on here are probably extremely experienced and have what it takes, but if you could give me a chance to show you what I have to offer I would greatly appreciate it.
