Magic in the air

There is definitely magic in the air. I just was cast in the upcoming movie, "Peace, Love and Misunderstanding," starring Jane Fonda. It is being filmed here in Ulster County, NY. I had auditioned for it several weeks ago, just for the experience of auditioning, never anticipating that anything would come of it. A LOT of people auditioned, many with much more acting experience than I (which isn't hard, since I have only taken an acting class for a year and a half and never acted in anything before this class).

But surprisingly enough, I got a call two days ago, asking me to email pix of the front and back of my head, to be a "hair double" for Jane Fonda. I didn't even know what that meant, so I asked Brian, the guy who called me. He explained that it would be for a shot of the back of my head in a car - they would use a double so that Jane wouldn't have to do that shoot. So I asked my son Michael to take a couple photos of me on my iPhone, and I emailed them to Brian. But there was a hitch - one of the times they needed to do the shooting was a week in August when I have to be out of town for a Divine Cosmos Convergence Conference. So again, I figured nothing would come of it.

But yesterday, Brian called me back. He said they had gotten someone else to do the hair double, but that he had something better for me. He said they thought I looked as though I could be a friend of Jane's, so they want me to play that part instead. So people would see me, and I would be in several scenes - not just the back of my head in a car as if I were Jane. And the five days that they need to do the shooting are days that I am free !

I am thankful for this opportunity, and for the ongoing magic in my life. I just need to stay open to opportunities, and follow my heart.

    Dear Marta I have been listening to your singing the dream and shared it with my sister on her computer and loved the italian before I heard the french. Then I saw the Faure songs and was touched by their chant and prayer like quality. Congratulation Marta Kenneth
