Landing On Mars
At the age of 5 I already knew what I was meant to be: an entertainer. I loved singing at family events and acting out my “Steve Urcle” skits for friends and family. I loved the attention, I loved the laughter, and most of all the feeling that I had when performing. My passion for acting had only progressed as I got older. The one thing on my mind was acting and actually making it. People would always say that “one in a million make it”. Well I believed that I could be that one.
Sometimes, when in bed, I would find tears streaming down my face because I felt like I just needed to “be there” already. I craved, breathed, ate, sang, and dreamed a career in acting. At the age of 12 I wrote out all the things that I was going to do to make this happen. I wrote down training that I could enroll in, practice singing, monologues I could perfect, and I also wrote where I would be at different ages of my life and how many movies I would have acted in. Living in a small town where there is no such thing as agents or auditions other than the school play, I felt very stuck and frustrated. I knew I had to do something. I would search the internet for hours looking at different agency’s and acting websites. I was 14 when I “received”. I came across this website and contacted the owner/creator. To make a long story short I auditioned and was accepted to compete in AMTC (American Modeling & Talent Convention) in Orlando Florida with much help from my supportive parents. A few weeks later I had an agent and was living in LA. In fact, my entire family moved down to LA and we lived there for a year. Who would have thought that a dream with belief and determination could move an entire family from a small town to to the big city of LA …I did!
Due to the Visa process we did have to come back to Canada but I have all the faith in the world that I will somehow, someway, make it back to LA and have a long lived successful career in acting. I can see it, I can feel it, and therefore I am!
