Back with a small update on my experiences with getting cast as an extra on The Deuce. On August, 4th I went to Steiner Studios around 2 o’clock, two hours early for my fitting. When I stepped onto the lot, I have to be honest, it was a little unnerving. Set pieces from the tv show Gotham, props from Blindspot, and, finally, the thousands of costumes being used for The Deuce were all within 20 feet of me at any given moment while I walked through the Navy Yard.
It was so overwhelming, but in a good way! Especially when awkwardly standing in the middle of the 2nd Floor Hallway of 25 Washington. And then soon as it came, it all fell away. The stress of auditioning, the intensity and pressure of trying to prove that you’re good enough to be here, to be doing what you love. At that moment, I took in everything and remembered why I am doing this and that familiar feeling, of reaching that next step toward your goal washed over me.
Every day I push myself a little bit further because I know everyone trying to make it in this industry is doing the exact same thing. Finding a balance between competitiveness and happiness is a tricky thing, but striving toward it is so rewarding in the end.
Well that’s it for today, but I’ll be back with more updates as I continue on this crazy journey. Thanks for following along and for all of your support. The next post will cover the actual shoot and what it’s like to be on a real-life set. Look out for that post in the next few days!
