[Actors Headshots by Vanie]
I recently had a Birthday over the Holidays (turned 21 ;-))
and received a ton of birthday wishes on Facebook. Though there is something superficial about Facebook friends wishing you a happy birthday, it still somehow feels good when people take a moment to do so. I don’t have a huge social life, so in a funny way, it made me feel like people thought about me and I existed!

Frank S: Country Club / Villain
Courtney South: Period Secretary / Hayley Pendergrass: Troubled Teen
WHEN I GOT BACK INTO THE STUDIO AFTER THE HOLIDAY BREAK, much to my surprise, one of my clients had sent me a Birthday card in the mail.
Yes, an actual Birthday card snail mailed!
I felt so many things at once.
Michael Kostroff: Lawyer / Nosy Neighbor / Deli Owner (blue collar)
I was shocked that a client, almost a stranger, would take the time to purchase a card, write in it, and mail it. WOW, did it feel good!
Obviously, the information about my birthday was available to them on Facebook, but they chose to take wishing me a Happy Birthday a step further than everyone else.
Well, I will now forever remember that client and forever be honored that they appreciate me.

WHAT DO YOU THINK WOULD HAPPEN if you did the same with every Casting Director, Agent, and Producer you meet and friend on Facebook?
I can tell you one thing for certain, you won’t be just another actor looking for work! You will forever be etched in their brain as someone who is thoughtful and willing to go the extra mile. You will be remembered.
After all, isn’t that the point?
