… and I also received great feedback for my first lead role.
THOUGHTS ON MY LEAD ROLE
Going into this, I was scared that I wouldn’t be good. I thought I was going to be a “fraud” and my lack of experience made me uneasy. I don’t know what exactly happened, but I was not bad at all. During the filming, I asked Feli, the director, for permission to see my performance as I am really good at correcting myself once I see what I do on the monitor. She allowed it and I couldn’t believe that I was believable. What a feeling.
The whole cast and crew unanimously said and believed that I was a good actress and that I did a great job. Hearing those words was so surreal. Receiving that feedback was incredible. This project gave me the confidence I needed to level up my game and stop being timid.
I GOT MY INSTA BACK!
The absolute randomness of my 30K+ follower account coming back to me after 5 months since losing it is just baffling. I feel like I have used the word “baffled” a lot in these blog posts. That’s because these months have been nothing but baffling. And it came back in perfect timing: I know what I want, I understand more of who I am, and I am ready to make the most out of this account.
Whatever I do, I am following my intuition. Every decision made: the one of not looking for an agent straight away, going to Paris, applying for XYZ roles… every decision was made out of intuition. And now, my intuition is asking me to level up: we are only going for lead roles in shorts from now on, and will accept smaller roles on feature films. We will not do smaller roles on shorts unless paid or unless the network is good enough.
I am mega excited. I feel that I am onto something!
