After I moved back to Oklahoma I continued acting when I could. I went on auditions whenever they were available, and I actually ended up getting a part as one of the main characters in a feature length horror film that was filmed in Tulsa. It was actually a super fun experience that took several months of filming and resulted in a film that actually got distribution (you could even order it on Netflix at one point) and had a "premiere". I am a pro at downplaying anything important that happens in my life but it was actually something that I know I'll look back on and be glad that I did...even if it didn't exactly lead to fame and fortune ;)
A little while ago one of the guys who was in the film that I'm still friends with on Facebook posted a link to a music video that I had absolutely no idea existed. A local band had several songs in the movie, and apparently someone made a music video for one of them. And that is how I discovered I'm in a music video that I knew nothing about.
For a long time I tried to hide all of the "acting" I had done from people, and would never, ever consider mentioning it on my blog...but the older I get the more I see it as an incredibly fun and slightly hilarious period in my life. So why not?
What's really fun is to watch this video of myself in a tiny bikini as I sit on the couch superduper pregnant...it's wonderful for the self esteem, I tell you. Motivation to lose the baby weight, perhaps? I'll take it.
Oh, by the way....sometimes it's hard to distinguish which blonde I am. I will tell you this much: I'm not the one running around in my bra.
