So at Louisville’s International Festival of Film (LIFF), for which I was volunteering this weekend, I met some incredible people and had a fantastic time.
Two beautiful and talented women, who some of you may actually be familiar with, were Catherine Dent (The Shield, 21 Grams, The Mentalist…) and Shohreh Aghdashloo (The Stoning of Soraya M., 24, Grimm, The Exorcism of Emily Rose…). We watched their fantastic film, “Silk”, and then I actually worked up the courage to speak with them afterwards. They both had some great advice for me.
When I expressed a concern about going into the acting field because I’m not quite your typical “Hollywood” look, Catherine Dent said: “Embrace it and forget the motherfuckers”. And after chatting for a while, Catherine gave me her card. (Next time I need to remember to make my own to distribute)
