Summer Update

Summer Update


Hi Everyone!
We hope you are having a fabulous summer. Sofia and I have been quite busy this summer, traveling into Manhattan several times a week on auditions, go-sees, and regular “fit” modeling work. Sofia has been working as a “fit” model for GAP, and she absolutely loves it!

We had a few close calls this summer, which were pretty exciting. One was a callback for a European TV show that is filming in Belgium. Sofia went in against some very seasoned and lovely young ladies, and was called back. Haven’t seen anyone book it yet, but just getting called back was amazing!

She was also on hold for another campaign, which fell through, and went to a friend in the business.

While it may sometimes be frustrating to get put on hold, or called back, and then not book a job, it is important to remain hopeful. It is also a reassurance that she is in the right place. She loves what she does, and she is definitely catching the eye of the casting director.

As always, I am an optimist, and believe that what is meant to be, is meant to be. In the meantime, we are having a blast!

We hope you are all enjoying this gorgeous summer.

Happy Spring Y’all!

Happy Spring Y’all!

Sofia RodriguezSpring Fever came in like a whirlwind, and we are finally back in the game. After a very slow winter (and believe me, I am not complaining… I HATE THE COLD!), Sofia has been averaging a go-see / audition a week. The above photo is a recent photo from last week when we had two appointments in one day. One was for fit, and the other was for a TV project, which she got a call-back for. We are keeping our fingers crossed for that one. It is the first audition that she has been on that she has voiced adamantly that she thinks the role is hers, and that she “really, really, really wants to book this”.

It has been so great seeing her really come into her own. She handled an 8 page script last week with grace and enthusiasm. I’m hoping this one comes through. I think she is perfect for the project, and she is super excited about it.

We will keep you posted!

Stay tuned for Sofia as Jennifer Lawrence again!

Once again, Tricia Messeroux, along with her Toddlewood team, has worked her magic recreating this year’s Oscar nominated movie posters. Sofia was so excited to get to work with Giulia Ciccari again on the American Hustle movie poster. Here is a sneak peek of Sofia as Jennifer Lawrence.

Inside Edition was there and I will keep you posted on viewing information!

Sofia’s Toddlewood Hairstylist – DANIELLE WRIGHT

Sofia’s Toddlewood Hairstylist – DANIELLE WRIGHT


How amazing was Sofia’s transformation into Jennifer Lawerence for Tricia Messeroux’s Golden Globe re-enactment? When Sofia was booked for this, I thought that they would for sure just creatively pin her hair up in the back and use her existing bangs to re-create Jennifer’s hairstyle, and then spray it blonde. I was shocked when they pulled a blonde wig out!

Hairstylist Danielle Wright was the mastermind behind Sofia’s amazing hair transformation (and of course all the other children’s amazing hair styles as well.) I just wanted to give her a shout out and to say how wonderful it was to work with her.

She was so humble, sweet, and patient with all of the children and parents there.

You can check out Danielle’s work on her website, by clicking the link below:

Her work speaks for itself. Amazing woman, inside and out.

Safety First

So, on my way to get Sofia and saw 11 cars accident. 6 cars, and then a few feet up, another 5. One car was smashed into a pole, another literally sitting crossways ON TOP of the median! Our car (and we have 4 wheel drive) was literally sliding all over the road like a bumper car.

I called our manager and told her there was no way to get into the city. I said, “I’m so sorry,” and she said “What are you apologizing about?! I totally understand, it’s not safe.” And that folks, is why we love Colette!

The job is supposed to shoot Thursday, so maybe they will direct book. Fingers crossed!

Can you handle this?

Can you handle this?

Snow
So I just thought I would update quickly since I need to get the hell out of here and head into the city shortly. Sofia has an audition today (yes, today, while it is snowing like crazy, and MAJOR accumulation is expected.) Logically the audition would be cancelled, correct? Well folks, I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again… THIS BUSINESS MAKES NO SENSE!

Emailed manager and confirmed that audition is still on for this afternoon (and 4 pm, no less!) . Indeed, my friends, it is still on!

I just spoke to another friend (y’all know her as Denise on this blog) and she is also heading into Manhattan now for a 3 o’clock callback. She also confirmed that audition has not been cancelled.
Both of us are having meltdowns, and yes, both of us are going.

This is the city that never sleeps, and so is this business.

This type of lunacy comes with the territory of this business, and I strongly urge anyone considering the business to really think about whether or not they could handle this.

In the meantime, wish us luck! :-)
