Thank you so much for all of the comments and emails! It's so good to be back! LOVE reading all of your blogs, as well!
I had to take a Proust questionaire the other day for an interview I did for the movie "Piranha 3DD"
I probably havent posted about this, but I played "Lizzie The Lifeguard" in the film. 2 days before the film debut, my scene was cut, but put at the end of the film just before the credits! I was so excited to even make the film at aall...any exposure is good! The DVD just came out, and its also on iTunes and Netflix. I spent 15 days on set alongside David Hasselhoff (my boss/head lifeguard in the film!) We shared a heating tent and...dude is crazy fun!
Anyways, it was so much fun to play an actual character with a line! I can finally cross that off my Bucket List! DON'T watch the whole film...in my opinion, its not good...but my scene is fun! I'm also in the middle of the film underwater picking up cans from the pool...doing my lifeguard duties! :)
I'm going to post my NEW answers on this Proust questionaire! You guys should totally take it, too! It's so much fun! I took it like a year ago and posted it on the blog, and it was so funny how different my answers were!
