Previous acting experience: Commercials (England, Poland), daytime soap (2 years, England), movie (England), small parts here and there (England)

Why do you want to act for 4-D studios? I have heard a lot of good things about 4-D Studios and want something I can trust after leaving Europe. I came here to work with the type of stuff I'm interested in.

What do you feel you can bring to the studio? Everything a studio needs; new ideas, unique acting, a willingness to work hard.

What would you do if a rumor about you appeared in the tabloids? It depends on what it is. Ignoring it is usually enough, but as I said, it all depends on what type of rumour it is.

What has been your most embarrassing moment? Getting too drunk in a bar and falling off a table.

What lifetime experience (acting or non-acting) are you most proud of? Finishing school!

Screen test (to be written as a third person scene, two-or-three paragraphs is fine):

Vera looked around, taking in the surroundings before turning her attention back to the large map in her hands. It should be here, the large sign she had seen in the pictures should be right in front of her, but it wasn't. The young woman was standing in a dodgy neighbourhood in New York City, on an empty street surrounded by deserted apartment buildings. As if her being lost in the kind of neighbourhood you saw on Cops rain began to fall in large drops. One hit her forehead and was then followed by million more, drenching her map. With nobody to ask she picked up her mobile phone to call a taxi, but there was no connection. It suddenly felt like she was the only person left in the world.

Vera tried to trace her steps back to the street where the buss had dropped her off. It should be easy enough to find and then she could take the buss back to the city and ask around. She dragged her heavy suitcase along with her, still hopefull that she would find her hotel. But there was no sign of a bus stop and not a person in sight. What the hell was going on? Vera's legs could no longer support her and she found herself in a puddle on the ground.

"Miss, are you okay?"

Vera looked up and in to the face of an old black gentleman with a brown hat and yellow wellingtons. His jeans were worn out and torn in several places, but with his white moustache and wild eyebrows he looked kind and Vera felt that she was once again filled with hope. The man reached out his hand to help her to her feet; the hand of a hard worker. Vera accepted his help and was soon standing again. Water was running dripping from her hair and running down her face and into her eyes. "Here, take my coat, you'll catch your death!" the man spoke again and transferred his heavy gray coat from his own shoulders to hers. It was warm and smelled of cigar smoke. "Thanks," Vera said hoarsley. The man smiled warmly at her. "I'm Godfrey, but the folks around here call me Uncle Goddy."

Vera looked around. "Folks? I haven't seen a single soul since I got off the bus..."

Uncle Goddy smiled that warm smile again and pointed towards a larger building a bit further in the distance. A bright light was shining through every window; so bright that Vera was forced to shut her eyes. "They're all in there," he explained with a gentle voice. Everything about this man felt welcoming, warm and friendly. Only her common sense kept her from hugging him and never letting go. "And they want you to join the, Vera," Uncle Goddy told her. She flinched and looked up at the tall man with her eyes large. "How do you know my name?" What was going on?

"I've been expecting you," Godfrey said and looked up to the sky. As he did that the weather changed; the rain stopped and the sun came out. "I've known you since you were born, but back then you weren't ready to join us."

"What do you mean ready to join you?" Vera asked, determined to get some answers before she went anywhere with a man she'd never seen before. Or had she? He looked rather familiar, but the whole situation left her feeling torn; she was scared and excited at the same time. Godfrey put his large hand on Vera's shoulder. "There are people waiting for you, child. Your mother has been cooking all day and she really wants to see you."

Vera shrugged off his hand. "My mother's dead!"
Godfrey smiled again, always smiling and always with that look of understanding. "Yes, and so are you..."

Previous acting experience: I've worked in nightclubs since I was seventeen and I've done countless photo shoots. As far as acting, I've had a few small parts in television shows, but nothing really huge. I'm looking to make my mark in the film world. Onward and upward!

Why do you want to act for 4-D studios?
I've heard so many great things about 4-D -- not only from critics, but actors as well. The place is phenomenal and I'd be honored to have a place here.

What do you feel you can bring to the studio? 
A fresh look, a uniqueness, if you will. So many studios today are all marketing the same things -- fresh-faced young blonds with sticks for bodies. I think 4-D offers something different than other studios, and I feel I can help bring even more in that department. I mean, how many actresses today are voluptuous and comfortable with that?

What would you do if a rumor about you appeared in the tabloids?
It's part of the business. If you don't want to be talked about, why are you here, right? I tend to ignore the tabloids myself, because, hey -- the more they run your name down, the more your price goes up.

What has been your most embarrassing moment? I don't really get embarrassed, not anymore. I think the last time I was really mortified was in grade school. My parents insisted we speak Italian at home, so it was my predominant language for years. Obviously I've got a great grasp on English since, but before that I always kept mispronouncing things and using the wrong words. In 2nd grade I called my teacher Mrs. Penis instead of Mrs. Prince, things like that.

What lifetime experience (acting or non-acting) are you most proud of? Achieving any goal I set for myself makes me incredibly proud. I think what I'm most proud of is that I was able to break into the business and gain relative popularity without having to change myself. I still wear my hair the way I want and I dress the way I want, and people still want to see my photo shoots. Being able to say that in the entertainment world is a great achievement, I think.

Screen test (to be written as a third person scene, two-or-three paragraphs is fine):

A shy person trying to get up the nerve to speak to someone on the bus.

It was raining again. It had been raining all week, a steady downpour of cold water and a washed out gray sky. Holly hated the rain because it meant she had to take the bus. And she hated the bus. The black-haired woman sat with her legs crossed, her patent leather heels probably ruined after she had stepped in that puddle at the bus stop. She stared out the window, but it was rather pointless -- the weak gray light combined with the rain made it difficult to see anything outside. Christ, she wished she could light a cigarette on this blasted thing. The bus either made her motion sick or nervous, and right now she was definitely feeling the latter.

The vehicle had only been moving along for a few blocks before it stopped again to let on more passengers. This was one of the most annoying things about public transportation, always having to stop for everyone else, making a usual five-minute trip into a twenty-minute one. Holly's eyes flicked toward the door as it opened to see what class of people were getting on. Expecting to see some ragamuffin teenager with shaggy hair or a woman getting off of her graveyard shift at work, she was surprised to see a tall, handsome man with dark hair and dark eyes. He dropped his fare in the box at the front before heading toward a seat. The man sat directly across from Holly before he opened a newspaper and started to read.

Oh god. Why did they have to meet on the bus? Why couldn't it have been a place more comfortable for Holly, like a restaurant or a shop? As the bus lurched forward, Holly felt her stomach follow suit. "Oh Christ, don't vomit," she muttered to herself. The man across from her looked up and gave a small smile. He must have heard her talking to herself. She felt her face flush as she returned a quick sickly-looking smile before the bus driver hit a pothole. Holly swallowed hard, hoping against hope she wouldn't throw up. All she had to do was say hi to the man. That's it. And then she could forget about her motion sickness and possibly have a date for that weekend.

She rode on like this for several more blocks until the bus was finally at her stop. She thanked the heavens she hadn't thrown up. Now was her chance. Holly stood up and clutched her purse. She faced the man and he looked up at her with pleasant face and an expectant grin. Holly could do it, she knew she could. She opened her mouth. "He--" Before she could even finish the word, she felt the contents of her lunch thrust themselves out of her stomach and onto the man's newspaper and lap. "Oh.. oh god.." She couldn't even force herself to apologize. As everyone around her stared in disgust and confusion, Holly ran from the bus, not even caring about ruining her shoes.

Previous acting experience: 
Only in little theatres.  Nothing too huge, but I've committed to doing this professionally.

Why do you want to act for 4-D studios? 
Because it's the best studio out there.

What do you feel you can bring to the studio? 
Emotional depth.

What would you do if a rumor about you appeared in the tabloids?

I'd ignore it.  It's mostly garbage and most people know this.

What has been your most embarrassing moment?  Probably the time I locked myself out of my dorm room while naked.  As to how that happened, it's a really long story.

What lifetime experience (acting or non-acting) are you most proud of? Breaking away from California and moving here.

Screen test (to be written as a third person scene, two-or-three paragraphs is fine):

Simon coughed, covering his mouth as he did so, and pulled his old Army field jacket closer around his shoulders.  He held out a cup as a professionally-dressed woman walked past, gabbing away on her cell phone; predictably, she moved away, giving him a wide berth.

"Help a veteran, I need a dollar to get something to eat," he said as someone else passed.

The guy looked him dead in the eye and kept going. He didn't have to say, "You'll just shoot it up or smoke it or drink it, ya bum," it was written all over the guy's face.

"Seen half the things I've seen, you wouldn't blame me," Simon muttered, catching a quick glance from another passer-by, who stuffed a five-dollar bill in his cup and kept walking.

"Thank you, God bless you!" Simon called out.

Previous acting experience: Various school and community plays.

Why do you want to act for 4-D studios? 4-D Studios was recommended to me by my Agent, Erin. After some research, the studio seems to be a good learning environment. If not for acting, then any other branch of "the business" since I am interested in all aspects of said business.

What do you feel you can bring to the studio? I'm reliable, flexiable, and a hard worker. I get along reasonably with most people I work with and I don't throw tantrums or make a fuss if things don't go my way.

What would you do if a rumor about you appeared in the tabloids? Depending on the rumor, I believe my reaction(s) would vary.

What has been your most embarrassing moment? It was my second or third audition and I had gotten really, really nervous. So much so, that I arrived at the wrong audition. When I realized it, I felt so embarassed.

What lifetime experience (acting or non-acting) are you most proud of? Participating in any theater production I was in, obtaining my diploma, and going on to college.

Screen test: A shy person trying to get up the nerve to speak to someone on the bus.

Her nerves already made the jarring bus ride even more uncomfortable as the metal yellow vehicle bumped down the rode to his bus stop. Kelly had confessed to her best friends yesterday at a sleepover that she had a huge crush on Chad DeWitt, their class president and star runner for the school's track team.

Now, of course, her friends were quietly egging her on to talk to him. Her fingers tightly gripped the straps of her backpack drapped across her lap, an expression of hope on Kelly's face as she watched for Chad's stop, counting one more to go and then the bus arrived. The teenager licked her lips nervously, shifting on the army green bus seat as a surge of butterflies fluttered in her stomach. Just a peek ... she thought to herself.

And there he was, ascending the stairs and appearing at the front of her bus. An involuntary smile curved Kelly's lips and her friends jabbed her in the side, the girl jabbing back as she shushed them. Just as Chad was about to pass her, Kelly opened her mouth to say, "Hi, Chad." But before a sound was uttered from her lips, two of the school's more popular girls beat her to it. The two girls invited the track star to sit with them and with a disappointed sigh, Kelly turned back to her friends, a look of defeat clearly written on her face.

Previous acting experience: Ah, just one little nameless thing, really. The locals back home were the only ones to see it. It really wasn't such a success though, and I'm glad I was only an extra in that thing...

Why do you want to act for 4-D studios? My agent suggested it actually. Said I should try auditioning for anything that interests me, and 4-D sounded kind of interesting to me. So here I am.

What do you feel you can bring to the studio? Well, besides new talent and a new face... hard work. I'm a hard worker. I finish what I start.

What would you do if a rumor about you appeared in the tabloids? Depends on the rumor, really. But if the studio or my agent should suggest something, more then likely I'll do what they say.

What has been your most embarrassing moment? Oh man, you would ask that. Um, I guess it would have to be my first day on the set for that little local movie. I don't have a martial arts bone in my body but for some reason they thought I was one of the stuntmen. I barely dodged getting a black eye.

What lifetime experience (acting or non-acting) are you most proud of? Seeing my sisters off to college. I gave up my opportunity to go further in school so that they could. And they're still making me proud.

Screen test (to be written as a third person scene, two-or-three paragraphs is fine):
Pick one of the following scenarios and act it out for us:

~A foreigner trying to find their way in an unfamiliar city~

He was so lost. Hikaru rubbed the back of his head nervously, his other hand occupied with holding the map he had bought from some vendor on the street. He had the biggest suspicion that he may have paid more for the map then what it was worth going by the size of the other man's eyes.

Not Hikaru's fault of course. He couldn't speak the language and he sure as hell didn't understand the currency. All the blame went towards the guide who was supposed to be showing him around but had managed to lose him within the first hour.

Sighing, Hikaru gave up on the map. He looked around, watching all the people who were walking up and down the sidewalks. Hikaru then did his best to look as pathetic as he could in hopes of someone taking pity on him and showing him how to get the hell back to his hotel, despite the language barrier.

Previous acting experience:
I've been in three plays, back in New York, in the past year. I was Chorus Girl #3 in 'A Chorus Line', The Maid in 'Mr. Whittaker's Mild Adventures', and Dee in ' A Tale of Two Sisters'. 

Why do you want to act for 4-D studios?
I believe that film is my future and when I saw that ad you took out in the Times? It seemed like the perfect opportunity. 

What do you feel you can bring to the studio?
  I know what it's like to work hard. My parents were just starting their horse farm when I was a girl and couldn't really afford for me not to work alongside them. I also know people. I just graduated last year with a degree in psychology, and that, along with my own personal life experience allows me to better understand a variety of roles. Oh, and if it helps, I do know how to ride a horse and drive stick. 

What would you do if a rumor about you appeared in the tabloids?
I guess it depends on what sort of rumor it was. 

What has been your most embarrassing moment?
  Well... this is just between us, right? I had a bit of an incident a few years ago. I'd gone to a party at this guys' house that my roommate knew and ended up hooking up with a real cutie. Tall, lanky, with the most gorgeous eyes... anyway, we started dating after that, whenever I could take the time away from studying. Only, one day, his mom caught us. His Mom! I'd had no idea up until this point that he still lived with his parents. Only it turns out that's not all he'd kept from me. His mother ended up going after me for statutory rape because he was only sixteen

What lifetime experience (acting or non-acting) are you most proud of?
I got a good write up in the Advocate for my role in Mr Whittaker's. It wasn't a very big part, but I guess I played it up right, because the editorial guy who did the piece actually mentioned me by name. 

Screen test (to be written as a third person scene, two-or-three paragraphs is fine): 

A foreigner trying to find their way in an unfamiliar city

The city was a labyrinth of tall, skinny buildings built to close together, and if there was a plan for the city's layout, Angelica couldn't make heads or tails of it. It was as if the city wanted her to be lost. A ridiculous sentiment, but with all that had happened so far, well... 

"Was it two lefts and one right? Or, maybe, it was one left and then two rights..." Angelica muttered to herself, looking one way down the one lane road and then toward the other, but no helpful street signs popped up for her. All she really wanted was to get herself checked in, take a shower, and close her eyes to this horrible day from hell. And she couldn't do that until she'd actually found the damned hotel. 

Angelica sighed and bent over the hood of her rental car again, comparing the two maps spread out before her for a long moment, trying to locate any sort of familiar landmark to go by. Exaustion and an overwhelming sense of despair blurred the images before her and she finally let out a strangled scream of frustration. A flock of birds took to the air at the sudden noise, mocking her with their call as they sped across the darkening sky, so sure of where they were going while she was utterly lost. Sweeping the maps up with a swipe of her hand, Angelica crumpled them up between her hands, taking satisfaction in the crunching sound they made as she did so before tossing them in through the open car window. 

"I'll- I'll just find someone to ask then," she said, shouldering her purse with a decisive shake of her head, and headed down the street on foot. Trying to ignore the odd silence around her, Angelica scanned the buildings as she continued down the lane. No cars passed by. A light here and there, shining from windows, showed there were people home at least, but no one appeared on the street as she passed. Church bells rang the hour from a far off distance.
 
"Halle-frikkin-luja!" she thought to herself, as she spotted a pub a few lengths down the winding street. Hurrying her steps, Angelica pulled open the tinted glass door and stepped inside. Finally, something was going right today. Her brain was already scrambling to translate the many questions she had within the limited vocabulary she possessed. If she were lucky, someone would speak English, but even if they didn't she'd stumble through it somehow. 

A chill creeped along her skin as the door swung shut behind her. The room was dark, save for the faint glow of the neon signs behind the bar, and no one moved. No one talking, no one drinking, no one
breathing... Everyone was dead where they sat, dried husks of once living people, and for a moment Angelica couldn't quiet comprehend what she was seeing. 

Eyes wide in shock, Angelica screamed until her lungs ran out of air. Gasping and choking for breath that wouldn't come, Angelica stumbled back outside. 

This was just
not her day, she decided.
