Day 4 and we are all dried out and back inside! We are shooting scenes out of order as per usual but with all this hopping around I catch myself (along with the director, dp and key makeup artist) jumping for my script just to double check where we are now!

I am so excited to be working with our Emmy Award-winning hair and makeup artist Linda Rondinella, a.k.a. Queen of the Braids!

When the script calls for rain we call the local fire department! Make it rain Fred!

And then some crazy person thought it was a good idea to ask me run through that rain, across a soggy lawn, while in a pencil skirt and wearing 6 inch heels! I guess that lawn is now good and aerated. Did I mention I do my own stunts?

It’s Day 2 on The Storyteller set and we are sticking with interiors today. Which is good because it is something like 95° and 90% humidity! Hot and sticky in Indiana. We also busted out the speed rail for a little dolly action.

You can also see our sound guy Bud Osborne mic-ing up little Brooklyn and myself. Gotta have good sound! And yes, those house slippers were they only pair of shoes I was left with after wardrobe raided my suitcases. But now I had an excuse to wear them out and about and even to the grocery store! Exciting times.

Let the whirlwind begin! Today was Day 1 of our crazy 18 day shoot for my upcoming feature film The Storyteller and we totally hit the ground running. First day of shooting and I got to show off my awesome corn shucking skills! Plus the spit bucket has already made an appearance. No matter how good it tastes, one can only eat so much corn.

On a serious note, I got to work with both of my costars Brooklyn Silzer and Cassidy Mack and WOW! They are two very talented actresses. I can’t wait to see where our characters take us!

I am so excited to announce that I have officially joined the team of the upcoming feature film The Storyteller as the lead Maggie! We are planning to shoot in July for three weeks in Indiana. Yup, gonna be hot and humid so bring on the curly hair!

Written by our Emmy Award-nominated director Joe Crump and our producer Rachel Noll, and shot by our cinematographer Dan Clarke, The Storyteller will be produced from an award winning original screenplay. Out of nearly 9,000 feature length screenplays submitted last year, our script won second place in the Family Film category for the prestigious “PAGE International Screenplay Awards.”

The Storyteller is a powerful exploration of imagination, belief, love and the true definition of family, as seen through the eyes of a remarkable young girl. Infused with music, magic and elements of Peter Pan, The Storyteller is Finding Neverland meets Once meets the underlying darkness of Pan’s Labyrinth.

I will be starring alongside some very talented performers! Constance Towers, Kristina Wagner and Brooklyn Silzer all of General Hospital fame, Cassidy Mack of Zoey to the Max, plus James Snyder from Broadway’s If/Then and Eden Espinosa from Broadway’s Wicked!

Check out my latest commercial! Shot back in February. Featuring the wonderful Stephanie Courtney as Flo, Austin Horick as my husband Dale and Billy Jayne as his biker buddy.

“While pumping gas, Dale’s double life is exposed. His biker friend Rob, after recognizing his friend, asks him what the minivan is all about. Attempting to deny ownership, his plans are ruined when his wife pops her head out the window to ask if he needs moisturizer and if his tummy is calm enough to ride in the front seat. Progressive spokesperson Flo tells Dale to own it — plenty of people drive a car as well as a bike, and if you bundle the insurance for both he might save money. However, the reputation damage is already done in front of his motorcycle buddy.”

What a great Valentine’s Day present!?!? I booked another national commercial this week. Shooting next week some time. Yay!

Who pees a little when they laugh? I guess this ginger does! Check out my new Poise commercial that rolled out this week!

It was so much fun on set! Brooke Burke-Charvet was a pleasure to work with. Too bad our whole Busby Berkeley number didn’t make it in the final cut. But it was a blast on set working with those giant “pads”. And no, that is not a wig – it is all me baby!

Directed by Fred Goss with Bullitt and starring Brooke Burke-Charvet, it is part of Poise’s “Seize your Poise moment” campaign. After having 4 kids, Brooke Burke-Charvet knows life can be hectic and that Poise® can help women.

And here it is! Check out Dixie Perkinson and I in the new Southwest Airlines commercial! Keep your eyes peeled during football cause I hear it is playing heavy during the games.

Directed by Jun Diaz and produced by Smuggler Inc.

I can’t wait to share this one with y’all. I had so much fun on set today! It is always so hard keeping all of the details secret until it airs. I think this one will come out in the fall, around football time. So keep your eyes peeled and let me know as soon as you see it. You all usually spot it before I know it’s even out!
