  1. So Sunday – the day those cast would be notified - was pretty silent all 
    day except for two calls from a friend.  As the day went on, I was becoming so disappointed.  I told myself to just accept that for whatever reason, I didn’t get cast.  Then, still not able to let go, I thought that maybe because it was Easter, she’d call in the evening.  I was grasping for any hope left.

    Shortly after 5:30, the director called.  I was thrilled.  I’m in.  I didn’t get the part I went there to audition for; I got one of the other parts she had asked me to read for when I was there. 

    The amount of shooting days for my character is less than what I had 
    hoped for (I'll still need a part time job), but it’s a recurring character, so hopefully it will grow.  I’m grateful.

    After sitting with the news for a few minutes, I texted my best friend.  
    He’s not a texter, so he called me.  After we spoke, I messaged an actress friend who I met at the audition and who felt more certain than I did that I was getting cast.  She wanted me to let her know, so I did.

    Wow.  I’m still digesting this.  Whew.  Thank you for your good wishes and 

    Love to CGG-M.

      Hi Mindy, I'm happy about the news even though I don't know what you have been cast in. Forgive me, what have you been cast in? xox,N

    10. No forgiveness necessary. I haven't revealed that. I'm not sure when I am free to share that, but I'll say that it is a new show and along the lines of The Sopranos. Those of you who appear as "Unknown" in the comments -- if you don't put your name in the comment, I don't know who you are.
