  9. SJ Burns

    Hey! How are you?
    My name’s SJ Burns, and I am 15 and 3/4, born on January the 21st, 1999. I’m sassy, smart, and my passion is acting, kids and animals. I was born and raised in Victoria, Australia, and have lived in the country for most of my life.
    I am…

    *I have naturally curly, fiery red hair that I have dyed a bit darker – more of a ruby red
    *light skin
    *and bright blue eyes.
    My family is super supportive of me and my dream of acting, and my mum has agreed to let me fly out to America to do auditions if I make it in (if I pay for my own plane ticket that is!).
    I’ve always wanted to get into acting ever since I was a toddler – my parents, grandparents, and old family friends tell me I used to do little skits for them when I was younger. My dream is to make it big in America as an actress, and achieve my childhood dream.
    I’ve been doing Production and Drama at school sine Year 7, and I’ve done dancing, singing and Theater outside of school as well. I am currently in Year 10, and halfway through the year I started doing homeschooling so I could work part time to save up some money, and help mum and dad with the family business – I currently work at the family business (a school camp for primary aged students), and do babysitting part time, as well as work with a mobile miniature pet farm part time.
    My hope is to move to America once I turn 18 and have my drivers license, and can get a Student/Working Visa so I can pursue my dream of acting, and attend college to boost my skills. I was hoping to move to America to finish off Year 11 and 12, but it was going to cost me too much to live with a family, so I’ve decided t wait until I’m 18 (and also why I am currently working part time).
    It would be an amazing opportunity for me to be able to audition because it would get me a foot in the door and hopefully start off my acting career, and get me some experience.
    I cannot even begin to fathom what I would do if I couldn’t act – I honestly don’t mind if all I ever get to do is musicals, I need to do something that makes me happy, something that helps me express who I am, and acting is the only way I can do that. The only way I can express myself through characters and scenes, and I would be devastated if couldn’t get into acting.

    I hope you take me into consideration, and I look forward to hearing back from you.

    SJ Burns.

  10. Danya Gallegos

    Hi my name is Danya and I would like to have the opportunity to audition for some of your productions. Being an actress has been my dream job since I was a child. Right now I’m in college and I’m miserable there. I forced myself to go for my family because I wanted to make them proud and if I told them I want to become an actress I feel like I would disappoint them and I don’t want to because of everything they had done for me and I’m thankful for it it and them. This is the only way I could contact producers or someone who can give an opportunity of a lifetime and help me have my dream job since I don’t have a camera to record, or money to travel. I’m broke as can be and so is my family that’s another reason I don’t travel to a place where I can accomplish my dream. We are in so much debt it’s not even funny and now even more with college, which I feel guilty for because I really don’t want to go. Some details about me are:
    Ethnicity: Hispanic(Mexican American
    Age: 18 but seem younger to some
    Height: 5’3
    Weight: around 158
    Eye color: Brown
    Hair: Dark Brown, straight and right under my bust
    Extra: Bilingual (Spanish, English)
    I really hope you can give me a chance to show you I can be a great actress even though I’ve had no experience and give me the opportunity to help my family economically because now both my parents work two jobs and my 17 yr old brother is also working and my 14 yr old brother doesn’t get to see my parents for more than 30 minutes which saddens me deeply. So PLEASE give me an opportunity to have my dream job. Thanks for taking your time to read this and may God bless you and all your work.

  14. Aneesha

    Ever since I was 4, it’s been my dream to step on a set or a stage and just act. I feel like acting shows parts of you that you didn’t even know about. You can also express many parts of yourself by acting. Ever since I saw a school play, I knew that i wanted to be up there.,On stage with friends and have fun and just express myself in acting. Acting is a very big dream of mine that I’ve had since i was little. I find Acting as a great opportunity to learn about others and yourself. And to meet many new people and meet new friends. If i were to accomplish my dream of being an actress it would feel great to know that I actually accomplished something in my life while being told that i wouldn’t be able to by others,

  15. ian beckroege

    My name is Ian Beckroege and I am 17 years old I am 6,2 with dark blond hair and blue eyes. I am good at doing characters and impersonations. When I act I put everything into the character my mindset goes from being myself to that character and on set Ian doesnt exist anymore. When I act I truly believe I am that person. Its always been my dream to become an actor I am easy to get along with. My friends say I am an excellent liar in fact it has gotten me out of trouble on several occasions. I am athletic and I love to be active. Please, I beg of you, give me a chance and you wont regret it.

  16. Will Cohen

    I am Will Cohen and am 16 years old and unfortunately my whole life I wanted to be an actor more than anything in the world. I say unfortunately because it is such a competative industry, but I am willing to do anything it takes. It would be amazing to get the oppurtunity to be a part of this show for the exposure and mostly because of all the things I can learn from the experts that have already made it. Please consider me for any part I would be a great teenager because I am one.

    i would love to have the opportunity to audition for this movie because i’ve studied acting all my life because my dad is a script writer and he would write little things for me as if i were at and audition so i have spent my whole life preparing for an opportunity like this and people always say that if the other actor is good than its easier for the rest to do great for instance kristen wiig well imagine if both of the actors were great and had experience like my self, this movie would be a hit!

  20. Haley Payne

    Hi my names Haley Layne,
    I have red hair that goes down to my bum, I have blue eyes and lots of freakles. I’m 13 years old my birthday is April 20, 2001. Everyone says I have a carefree personality. I have some experience with acting and modelling. When I was a baby my mum aditioned me for modelling I got through but my family could not afford it, And again the same for when I was twelve I did additions for modelling and acting, I had the privilege of meeting one of the cast members off, one of the csi shows. My mum was a model, and I was supposed to model for John Robert powers but starting with the cost of money I couldn’t. But I am in a better place now. I’m really good at meeting new people exspesually adults. I always give 110 percent when doing something and will except any parts, and I won’t stop trying tell I get to the top and become the best I can be!!

  21. Aaliyah Nelson

    My name is Aaliyah S. Nelson and I’m a 13 years old, African American girl, and I live in Atlanta,Ga. I have dark brown/ black hair and eyes and light brown skin (without my seriously gorgeous tan I have right now).My birthday is April 15, 2001 , so yeah I just turned 13. And honestly ….. I don’t feel any different. I have been wanting a chance to be on Disney for a while , since I was 5 actually and I hope to act or sing some day. I am very observant at first but once I get comfortable with the people around me I am very outspoken and quite random. If my friends could describe me I think they would either say I’m crazy,funny , and random. People that don’t know me would say I’m shy ,smart, and tall. I hope you consider me as one of the roles you are casting for.
