    I am very interested in the concept of this series, not only because I have a passion for acting, but because it is hinged on a lot of my personal and Faith beliefs, of what would actually happen in the event of a rapture, type situation. I believe, as a matter of fact, I AM SURE, that I can bring some added excitement to this already compelling drama.

    I do not have any professional acting experience, however, I have written and starred as the lead character in several of my local church plays. I am 49 years old, and am late at this, however, I have had a longing to act for a living for the majority of my life, and I am not getting any younger. If I am going to do it, I may as well give it ALL THAT I HAVE, RIGHT NOW!!! Time is not waiting for anyone!!!!

    When i was in elementary school i held a paper plate with a few cooked noodles on it during a performance of the children’s book Magic Pasta Pot. It was about 20 years ago, but i held the shit out of that plate. I would like to audition for a role for a chance to once again hold the shit out of a plate, metaphorically speaking, of course.

    I have been acting for pretty much my entire life, but mostly in school and church plays, most recently (as a student there) i had been participating in the CUNY Brooklyn College film students’ tests films at the end of each semester to gain what little experience i could from that in terms of acting for the camera. I am doing a lot of scene study and character study on my own time, trying to teach myself to become one with the story and circumstances etc. I would be so honored to have even an extra role in this series.

    the best way to contact me would be via email.
