"None of us suddenly becomes something overnight. The preparations have been in the making for a lifetime.- Gail Goodwin
Day 107: I attended USC's annual end of year showcase of it's MFA graduates at the invitation of a friend of mine who was in TSU's theatre program with me and subsequently got her MFA at USC. The program itself was right under an hour and it was a nice mixture of comedic and dramatic scenes. After their performance, the reception provided a great opportunity for me to meet not only the wonderful actors but other former graduates who raved about their experience as well as a handful of the program's staff. The highlight of my night was when an incognito casting director came up to my friend and raved on and on about how fantastic she was when she auditioned for her and that she felt so bad that the producers cast someone else because they all really loved her. My friend then introduced her to me as the casting director of True Blood. Wait, what?!?

"Are you Libby Goldstein?" I asked. 
"Yes" she said, looking at me for the first time. "Wait, do I know you?"
"No, but I did just send you my headshot last week."
"Oh okay," she says, as if recognizing me from my picture.

Now true enough, my envelope could very well still be in a large pile somewhere on her desk unopened but even if that is the case I was still thrilled to finally meet someone from one of the small handful of cd's whose radar I want to get on this year {see #8 on my 2011 Goals & Action Plan}. Time for me to order some postcards so I can send her a quick follow up by next week.

    We should try hypnosis on CD to have them remember us.
