  19. Tara Foxxx

    Hi! My name is important but I go by Tara Foxxx. I am 25 years old, and I am currently living in New Orleans, LA. I am not experienced in the acting or screenplay business but I have been told by numerous friends,colleagues,and coaches that “I have what it takes”. I grew up in rural Mississippi( it’s almost all rural land) and I am of Haitian/Dominican descent. I have a southern accent ,but not an ole country bumpkin one that most of Hollywood assigns to “Southern Folk”. I grew up watching Steel Magnolias and loved how the stereotypical and realistic perceptions of Southern women were shown for the world to see. The fact that it is being told from a Ebony woman’s point of view makes me even more intrigued! I have dreams of showing that there is “Talent in the South”.

  47. christina

    I love her … I belive alot of ppl no how to act they just need that push and ok from somone like every one has i wanna act so bad i love dis lady

  48. Jamilia Mills

    Faith. That seems to be the only reason why I have the courage to be up at this God forsaking hour thinking that someone would actually inquire about me. But sometimes when you have nothing to lose, what’s the worst that can really happen.

    I don’t know much about acting. I’ve never been a star in a school play or auditioned for a big role such as this. I’ve played Mary, mother of Jesus almost every year in my church but who would they really turn down, right?! One thing I do know, one thing I’m certain of is that I have a passion for telling stories. You can’t tell a really good story without evoking emotion. That! I can do. And for the things I can’t do, God will equip me with the skills I need to make it to the end. If you haven’t noticed, I’m interested in more than auditioning. I’m ready for a challenge to play the part.

    Please send me more information 😉

  49. Fatim

    hey. Pick me! Wanna know why? Because I have the attitude like the Queen and I am super funny. I also have great fashion sense I could probably even be the Queens sassy daughter or enemy! Anyways pick me! Sassy and funny. Don’t worry im not spoiled. byeee.

  60. Jada Johnson

    Hi my name is Jada I live in Baltimore and I discovered my love for acting/entertaining at a very young age when I played the role of an angle for a Christmas play at church. Now I’m at the point where acting is something I want to do for a lifetime its my passion and dream and when Im not working towards this dream I feel like its a waste of time. Since this is my first time auditioning for the big leagues I’m happy to play any role you have to offer. There are 3 reasons why I believe this is the right audition for me

    1. The learning experience.

  64. Danielle Woodhouse

    My name is Danielle W. and this movie would be perfect for me because I feel like I have been acting all my life. Trust me, I didn’t want to. There where times I felt I had to act as if i were happy with my LIFE when, in fact, that was very
    far from the truth. I haven’t lost anyone close to me as of yet but, I have been suffering from this horrible feeling of LOSS of LOVE. These things help my passion burn stronger. WEIRD, but i renact situations that do not go the way i want them to. I add and delete, i scream, i cry, whatever i have to do to be a happy Mommy again. Acting would be therapy for me. I’m 29yrs old suffering from Bi-Polar disorder. I just need someone to prescribe me a character. just like Hillary Swank I’m definitely someones Million Dollar Baby!

I have no experience in acting but I know I would be a great fit due to my many different personalities. My family has always told me I should have been an actress but I never pursued it in my career. I never thought that a normal young lady would ever get discovered so I never continued the journey for acting. It would give me great pleasure being able to be apart of this awesome cast.

    Frankly, reading the other comments at first discouraged me a bit because I’m not very experienced, as I’m only 16, but I’m very, very dedicated to being an actress. I love everything about the business and being able to act, even as an extra, in one of my favorite moves, would be the chance of a lifetime. I’m multi-racial, 5 foot 7 inches and have brown hair and brown eyes. I hope you consider me for this amazing opportunity.
