Sleeping on the job

Finally.

Someone in MediaCorp decided to give me a chance and cast me as a not-auntie, for once.

Although it’s a very small role (eight scenes, five of which I am comatose in), I very much enjoyed acting it.

The scenes (in which I’m not comatose) challenged my acting chops.

The sub-plot involving me is sweet and romantic.

I get to sleep on the job (literally).

I get to rollerblade (scene still unfilmed).

And I get to look like this:

(Now I bet someone is going to tell me that I look auntie here, too.)

Two things I love as an actress. Cool costumes and special effects makeup. I consider myself in heaven when acting in roles that require those because I get this non-stop adrenaline rush throughout the entire shoot (even when I’m made to sleep on the job).

This very small (but still meaty) role was a breath of fresh air for my sad career. I hope there’s more fresh air coming my way (after I cut my hair).

In my last blog, I mentioned that I was going to stop going to auditions. But I keep getting invited to them and it’s a bad career move to reject auditioners, so I had to go.

Not that it’s a bad thing. There were some pretty nice roles up for grab. Results still unknown.

But, whatever happens, I’m taking it easy.

If I get jobs, good.

If I don’t, I play WoW.

That, I think, is a mighty great plan.
