Me oh my, I barely have words to articulate how full my heart feels. If you were not aware I was a part of iZombie season two finale that aired on April 12th playing "Ginger" (type casting for the win). If you don't know what iZombie is, I highly suggest you get acquainted because the fandom is growing stronger and stronger. It's not a typical zombie style show, which is so cool. It's the perfect blend of comedy and drama. Rob Thomas I salute you a multitude of times for your impeccable creative choices in what you bring to our televisions,
Being on a CW show was a dream of mine since I was a budding young actor and to have been on The Flash and now iZombie, well God is just too good to me. I remember my first day on set, I was so nervous, It was only the second big budget show I had been on. There was two different sets close to each other and I had almost ended up parking at the UnReal crew park instead of iZombie. The nerves never left, but they did subside. Michael Fields the director, was so fun to work with, he put me at ease and I really felt like I was collaborating to tell this story.
The CW sure does know how to hire 'em. Rose, Robert, Malcolm, Steven, Leanne, Andrea, all of them are absolute astounding talent. As a younger actor I was trying to soak everything up like a sponge from watching them. The crew also stole my heart, their make up and hair team was a gem that I looked forward to every morning. Their AD's, producers, gaffers, craft services you name it, they have a place in my heart. I didn't fully realize the power that story telling has behind the screen till this experience. I also didn't realize my heart could be so full and not burst. I walked away from iZombie, having faced fears, laughing till I cried, learning from phenomenal actors and one hundred percent in love with every person there.
As I watched the episode the other night, I relived the memories made behind the camera, the special ones that I will hold dear for as long as I act (which I hope is till the day I die). I hope to never lose sight of this awe and wonder I have. To never become jaded and to always have fun. Thank you to the producers, the network, Michael Fields, Coreen and Heike Casting, for giving me this opportunity to live out my dream and to grow and learn as a person and as an actor. I will treasure it forever.
I hope you all have opportunities to go and pursue the things that make your heart swell, life is really too short to not do what you love. Let me know what you dream of doing and what you thought of "Salivation Army" if you saw it in the comments below, If you haven't seen the episode hit up the internet and give it a watch.
Love and blessings to you all.
