  15. Kristina Alexandrea Metz

    I would be very interested in being in any film, to be quite honest.
    My name is Kristina.
    I am from Grand Blanc, Michigan.
    I am 5’7,
    I’m 18 years old
    I have white hair
    I have green eyes
    and I also have an American/UK English accent
    However, if I was playing a role in a film and such, I’d be able to cover up my slight accent.
    Ryan Gosling is amazing, and this seems to be right up my alley.
    Just thought I’d leave a comment with a short description about myself.
    I’d really love to get into acting, it’s a dream of mine and I will make it happen some day. 🙂

  16. Briah Ann Krueger

    Hello Ladies & Gents!

    I am a very determined eighteen-year-old young lady who is ready to make a mark on camera. I have been involved in choir for eight years, and have been in productions through Theater Arts since the age of seven. Being on stage, or being given a character to portray is what I do best. Some people have Math or Science, some people can rock a Football field or Basketball court, but as for me; I have always felt my confidence soaring on the stage or on camera. If I or my friends and family had to describe me in a single phrase, I believe they would say I am an old soul in a young body. I am in LOVE with everything from Frank Sinatra to The Beatles. I am also a writer of poetry and have had my poems published in four different books.

    I am 5’3, and weigh about 115 lbs. I have brown hair and brown eyes, and I have a few freckles. I do not wear makeup except for foundation, I do not like to wear other products.

    I am a small town Wisconsin gal, but my heart-filled dreams are too big for this little place.
    I look forward to hearing back from you, and I thank you so much for your time and consideration.

  28. Sierra

    Hi! My name is Sierra. I have short blonde hair, green eyes, and am a 17 year old who would be more than pleased to be chosen to act along side some of the greatest actors of our time. I know 17 may seem young, but I can assure you I do not act or look like a 17 year old. I am 5’7, 145lbs and am very dedicated with everything I do. I think that I could be a great option for this movie, whether it’s a lead role, a character that appears in a few scenes, or even just an extra. I would be so happy if I was chosen to appear in this movie. I am a very hard worker and will do anything to succeed! All my life I have been a singer. I love to sing, but recently I’ve had a change of heart and think that I would have more fun, and would succeed more with acting. I don’t have as much experience as you guys would like to hear but if you give me the chance, I won’t let you down. Slowly but surely, I’m finding myself. I believe this is what I was born to do.

  36. Rachael Rodriguez

    Hello hello! My name is Rachael Rodriguez.
    I’m 5’4″ and petite, golden/dark eyes, dark hair that’s naturally curly but looks fine either way, and strong features (long neck, high cheek bones, strong jaw, prominent collar bones, and full lips). American Indian/irish
    Date of birth 11/23/1990 (23 years old)
    Celebrity look alike: Sandra Bullock
    I have a strong personality and when it comes to acting I’m very moldable.
    Any part I guarantee I could act it the way, if not close to what you’re looking to achieve.
    I deal with criticism well, in fact I’m thankful for it because without it is when one gets comfortable and starts to slack, or just never betters themselves. My goal is to work my tail off to be what’s needed and portray the character best to my ability. I have a wonderful memory.
    I was in plays growing up in school, and also in my church so I’m not exactly a beginner.

    You need a serious part? I’ve got it covered.
    You need a goof? Here’s your girl
    You need a tear jerker? Here’s the tissues, get ready!
    I’m good at playing the sweet soft girl, or a strong independent woman.

    I’m from the Detroit Michigan area.
    I’m not looking to become a Hollywood star.
    I just want to entertain people and do what I enjoy while making others happy. 🙂

    Thank you!

    Don’t be shy with questions!

  44. Jessica Nowacki

    Name: Jessica Nowacki
    DOB: 7/30/85
    Height: 5`8
    Hair: Dark Blonde
    Eye: Blue

    I am a small town girl from the small state of Delaware. Being able to “make it big” is virtually impossible here so being able to complete bios such as this online helps get my name out there. Acting has always been a passion of mine that tends to take the back burner because of the lack of stardom and opportunities lacking in the wonderous first state learning lines, practicing in front of the entire family, teaching myself to cry on cue and memorizing movie lines and behaviors are my childhood memories. I have a unique sense of humor that is very dry and can offend people easily, making me the perfect character for any role. I am not afraid of a challenge and portray any character, young or old, prissy or county, and semi-nice to very mean. I have the shocking and screaing scream most actresses would die for and can fake a scene like no other. Help this Sussex County girl make a name for herself beside any of the inappropriate names I earned in highschool.
