Interviewed by Autumn's Mom

My friend Dot over at Autumn's Mom sent me these questions for a bloggy interview:

1. Do you have any auditions or projects coming up you'd like to tell us about?

I had an audition last weekend for an infomercial for Bose (the sound system company). In the audition, I played a wife/mother character playing a game of Chutes and Ladders with my "husband and daughter". It was a bizarre experience because the man auditioning as the husband/father character was old enough to be my Dad, and the girl playing the daughter was 14 years old ... too old to be my daughter. They gave us three pieces of hard candy to use as fake dice and game pieces. After each of us had taken a turn rolling the "dice", we were instructed to look out the imaginary window at the neighbor's white dog running around in the mud. I didn't get the part.

Some good news on the acting front ... today I found out that I will be able to join the Screen Actors' Guild (SAG)! This is a significant victory for an actor in Hollywood. In addition to gaining union membership, it means that I'll get free DVDs of nominated films to vote in the annual SAG awards! Woo-hoo! :)

2. I think you have a great eye for decorating, would you consider this as a career?

Thank you for the compliment! This is my first real pass at home decorating. And while I have thoroughly enjoyed it as a creative outlet, I don't think I would consider it as a career. I just love acting too much! Fun side note: Laurie Smith on Trading Spaces is a dear friend of mine! I think I'll leave the professional decorating jobs to her!

3. Tell us 3 things you can't live without.

God in my life.
Quality relationships with family and friends.
An outlet for creative expression.

4. What do you love most about being married?

Not having to say goodbye at the end of a date. Until we got married, we lived about an hour apart, and I always felt so sad to say goodbye at the end of a great day together. Not anymore, baby! Living under one roof is the best!

5. Do you iron? Or fluff in the dryer?

I'm a 5% ironer and a 95% fluff in the dryer-er. I love wearing natural fibers, but they wrinkle so easily, so when a nice, soft synthetic fiber comes around, I'm all over that! Lately, I like modal fabrics. So soft and so wrinkle-free!

Thanks Tracy! I'm so excited about you getting your SAG card! Me and Lynn LOVE watching the awards shows. Someday, I hope to see you on there.

I'm a fluffer as well. It's too much of a pain to get the iron and board out.

Laurie from Trading Spaces? She's the southern lady, right, with the pretty hair and plaid fabrics? LOVE HER. And Edward. And now I can't think of the name of the asian guy, who I loved, and now he's over on HGTV...hmmm...

That bose thing sounds like maybe it would be national? That would be AWESOME!

I totally get the 'under one roof' thing. I remember being so relieved when we first moved in together.

Great questions, AM, great answers, Starshine!

Oh, Vern...that's his name. I wanted to call him Garett for some reason. Weird, huh?

Ginger said...

Congratulations on the SAG! This might be a big step for you. Please remember the little people when you are famous and photographed on the red carpet!

Beenzzz said...

Yay about the SAG membership!
Loved you answers. I don't like to iron anything either unless it's absolutely necessary.

ML said...

Nice answers to the interview. Dot asks great questions, doesn't she?

ML said...

Thank you for your nice comment on my blog :)

Hope you have a great weekend!
