Today I had the pleasure of coaching ClaimFame Pro Member Rilee O’Neill. This 18 year old performer is ready to break out as a triple threat! A singer and song writer by trade, Rilee is looking to boost her profile by performing on-screen. One of her role models is “Pretty Little Liars” actress turned singer, Lucy Hale. Known to her friends and family as Smiley Rilee, I could sense this young women’s enthusiasm for the arts all the way from New York. The passion, determination and moxie exhibited during our coaching call was contagious! I know we will be seeing big things from Miss Rilee.
During our coaching session, Rilee and I discussed auditioning for an independent film. I explained to Rilee that an indie is an excellent way to build her resume on a film that has the potential to make a splash on the festival circuit. Rilee candidly told me that she hadn’t looked at indie films from that perspective before as she is always trying to go for big, name brand, productions. However, I think after our chat she is willing to give it a try! I encourage all of you to give short, student, and independent films a chance. We all have to start somewhere and it’s time to build your acting credits!
