A Day in the Life on Set

I am so grateful to have had the career I’ve had – with the opportunity to work regularly in daytime, as well as guest stints in primetime and now my online role on THE BAY. And I’m forever grateful to those of you who’ve watched and stayed with me over the years.

I know that what you all see onscreen, or read about in magazines, etc., can seem so glamorous; but I have to admit … as much as I love what I do, it’s not nearly as glamorous as it all seems. In fact, what you’re seeing is the result of a lot of hard work on the behalf of so many people – writers, directors, crews and my fellow cast mates. It’s early mornings and late nights. Sometimes hours in the hair & makeup chair.  And it’s usually a whole lot of hurry up and wait.

All In …

Thank you all for the thoughtful comments you’ve shared here so far – I love reading your reactions and learning about how much we all have in common. I can relate to so many of the experiences you’ve shared, and one in particular strikes me today – the times in our life when we’re bored, idle or feeling a complete lack of motivation.

As I mentioned in my very first post, I am a product of a single mother who worked hard, but struggled financially. I have always been a worker bee, so I got a job when I was 14 (back when you could) so I could afford to buy the “extras.” I started working hard, or hustling as I like to think, to achieve goals I had laid out for myself; and I’ve never really stopped.
