I worked last Friday as a high school student on 12 Miles of Bad Road which is a new show for HBO. I can't tell you how happy I was playing a high school student being that I am 26. It was pretty fun. I was a stunt actress ie playing myself and not doubling anyone but I had no lines. The other actors were so nice and we had a really fun day of work.

This weekend Jon worked on a movie playing a solider for a friend of ours who is directing a movie and trying to get his start as a director. I think he had a fun time.

I am working most of this week on the Sarah Connor Chronicles doubling one of the leading ladies. I am the second unit double and have been able to get some good work on that show. This show is a mid season replacement on FOX so hopefully it does well. On Thursday and Friend my dad was hired by the stunt coordinator to be the fight coordinator. I am looking forward to working with my dad again.

My Commercial

Remember last month when I shot my first commercial? I haven't seen it on the TV so I figured I would see if there was anything on the Internet. I found a version of the commercial here. They changed it from the story boards and totally cut out my stunt. You don't see me trip, fall and get trampled by the kids. I must have fell on my face 20 times (it was actually pretty fun and I had knee pads on). Oh well, this happens all the time. You never know what is going to make it through the editing room. I am still in it and it is a cute commercial. It seems like this is a rough cut but I really don't know. Anyway, at least you can see it.

Death on the Set of the New Batman Movie

I just came across this article in my morning reading and it breaks my heart. A special effects technician died during rehearsal for a stunt driving sequence. It sounds like the driver of the camera car crashed while following the bat mobile and one of the guys in the camera car was killed. It is not only stuntmen who put themselves in risky positions to get a great shot it is also camera guys or others on the crew. Often times they are in the car with you, following you or dangling off the side of the cliff with you to get that one great shot. I have so much respect for the camera guys and other members of the crew who put themselves out there. Think about that next time you watch a car chase or big stunt someone has to be there close enough to get the action. My prayers goes out to his family.

The Spa

I must say I love going to the spa! Today I went with a couple of friends to the Burke Williams Spa in Santa Monica. It was wonderful. I feel so spoiled whenever I am at a fancy spa. I like trying out different spas because each one has such a different feeling. The only thing that most spas don't have that they should is coffee. They all have tea, fruit, cucumber water but not coffee. I know they don't have it because it is suppose to be a detox place but still I want some good coffee when I am sitting and relaxing. Anyway, it was a great day and I can't wait to go again, hopefully soon.

Working and Training

It feels like fall is in the air even in California. I love the hot weather but I am so happy it isn't 112 degrees everyday anymore. My dad has been visiting which has been great because I have been capitalizing on him being here. We have been doing martial art lessons in the park and I have loved it.

I am working today on a mid season replacement show based on the Terminator movies call The Sarah Connor Chronicles. It is always exciting to work on a new show. When I went to set to see if I was a good double the director of the episode they were filiming was an old camera guy on Lost who became one of the directors. A few of the other crew working on the show were people I have worked with on other shows. What a very small business.

Missed Call

As usual, I went to the gym yesterday for my daily workout. In the gym I don't get cell phone service so I leave my phone in the car(yeah in the middle of the city I don't get call service gotta love Verizon). When I went back to my car I had three voice mails about work. I immediately called back regarding the job and they had already hired someone else about 5 minutes before I called. I was so bummed! I have never missed out on work for going to the gym. I am not sure what to do going forward so this doesn't happen again. That is show biz!

Going to Hawaii

I fly out to Hawaii tomorrow morning. I get back in town late Wednesday night. It will be a short trip but I always have fun when I am there. I get in tomorrow before noon so I have the whole day to just enjoy the beach and all Hawaii has to offer. It has been so hot in LA that I am looking forward to being in cooler weather (who would ever think that going to Hawaii will be nice to get out of the heat).

To deal with the hot weather we went to the water slides park on Friday. It was so hot it felt like the heater was blowing on us all day. We had such a fun time and what better way to deal with the heat than play in the water.
