Got a call yesterday asking me to act in a TV drama. One scene. Two hours’ shoot.
Got an offer today for a role in a telemovie. It sounded like a great role at first. And then, five minutes later, it was revealed that it’s only one scene and NO LINES.
Not that I despise small roles, but if I accepted them, wouldn’t it be like someone who quits a job to accept a lower paying job in the same industry?
I have paid more than my fair share of dues since I was 17. But it seems every time I take a step forward, someone tries to push me back two steps. Three. Four. Ten steps.
I can’t even take a break in peace.
Counting my teenage years, I have worked as a model/actress for eight years in all. I have paid more than my fair share of dues. My resume lists mostly leading and major supporting roles. So why do I keep getting stupid offers? I mean, I still don’t believe I got invited to audition for the role of an extra. That surely takes the cake.
I don’t think I’m being too prideful.
Imagine a manager of a whole department in a company getting a call one day asking if he would be interested to join another company as a junior clerk.
Where got such thing one??
It’s just not right. So stop calling me!
