    What an experience sister!
    Dealing with all the hassles had to be just terrible so I was wondering if you got any compensation for your time?
    Sounds like this is going to be Noah Baumbach's adaptation of Don DeLillo's 1985 cult classic, a novel called White Noise!
    Here is an interesting read and a INSIDER SCOOP about what is going on, you can read on Literary Hub.
    Now I can say I have a sister who is a actress! That's pretty cool!

    Well fellow-Candy, I indeed was paid a whopping $10 an hour! I would have done it for free (I have in another film). I actually got my first check today!! They paid us for the COVID tests and fittings also!

    1985 women's professional and casual fashion were great. Dynasty and Dallas TV shows were in their heyday. Dresses and hose were still quite common.

    Remember the little guys when you walk the Oscar Red Carpet.
    If your not living on the edge, you're taking up too much room.

    Wow that is definitely cool. Of course when it comes out and my wife ends up watching it, I will have to bite my tongue because I cannot say - oh I know who that is , without getting a bunch of follow up questions, haha.

    Anyhow congratulations on landing the part. I am sure it is quite the experience.
    You must be thrilled.

    I can only guess that in the depths of your despair in you know where you never dreamed this day was possible.

    And it was even better than winning at pickleball?????

    Ladies, thank you for your sweet comments! I tell stories like this because I am very proud of myself and because I want to show you what is possible if you just take a chance. I fooled no one (believe me, I was in various states of undress, etc...) and it did not matter. I believe it actually helped. Love you all!!

    Uhhh....being an old lady myself, that might be detrimental to my career!!

    You know this completely, those are two different types of highs! I never dreamed I would be dressed head-to-toe, let alone own a fabulous wardrobe and work as a woman.

    Great question. No, I was playing a distressed character who had been evacuated and living in a shelter for days. I was supposed to look pretty bad, and did! The avatar was me this past weekend!!

    A big congrats on the acting gig Kandi, no doubt you'll do well and have a ball at the same time. Btw...the new avatar is absolutely terrific. May well be one of, if not your most feminine look yet. The hair colour really suits you. Keep going and keep enjoying.

    Kandi, I assume your character is a trans person. I also hope it is complimentary, and not intended to ridicule. Maybe you cannot say at this time. Julie

    Julie, I am positive that Kandis role was not intended to ridicule our community or she would have never done it.

    Crissy, My concern is the about the "magic of Hollywood"/Netflix. Sometimes the end product can be very different. Julie

    Welcome to the club. I have been acting doing mostly background work since since 2013. I've been in over 60 different movies and TV series mostly as a guy but I did get to wear a dress on the first episode of season 3 of the HBO series The Leftovers. The fitting and that day on set was so much fun.

    Nope! I am a woman and I am in two and soon to be three movies as a woman. It helps that I keep my yap shut. If I do nothing else, I represent! Plus I expect to be on screen for a millisecond, but I do know the central character in my scene walks right past me. Well over 50 takes tells me that.

    I am even walking the runway in a week at Ohio Fashion Week's Black Tie Gala.
