I am from Mississippi, so I know I possess the smart talking qualities of Cassie. Acting is what I’ve always dreamt of doing. I would be honored if you give the oppourtunity to experience my dream.

    Thank you.

  19. I would love to be considered for this Audition because I am greatly passionate about acting. I perfer the dramatic style versus comical because I am a very dramatic person. Many people compare me to the female version of Johnny Deep because I love playing characters that have a weird , odd , or generally unusal air about them. I have taken part in many school productions and currently take classes at Hartford Childrens Theatre ( Acting classes, plays, and Vocal lessons).
    I never leave the stage with a bad review and if I do i must make sure that I make up for it. I always five 100% and never expect anything less wether it be form directors or other cast members. My Personality is Spunky and super Nerdy but I can be morphed to fit any role, I am not limited.
    Thank you
