Dr. Rey-90210 Infomercial-Sensual Solutions

I did my very first infomercial shoot today. It was a huge milestone for me...overcoming fear and self doubt. Dr. Rey (Dr. 90210) has launched a new skin care line, Sensual Solutions (yes, it's for the face), currently sold at Nordstrom's. I answered a casting call by submitting my picture and a quick bio.

I often do things like this but chicken out and never follow through (see previous post U-Turn List). I've really decided to turn over a new leaf and go after all my old hopes and dreams. I received an e-mail stating I was a semi-finalist in the casting call. They followed up couple of days later telling me that I made it and when/where to show up for the shoot.

As the days approached I sent an email back stating I did not have previous acting experience (starting to chicken out). They said that they still wanted me. I showed up today and had an awesome experience! The producer, assistant and camera men were the best. They made me feel so comfortable. The product actually worked great...it "plumped" up my skin. They applied it to my crows feet, laugh lines and lips, even though I already have huge lips, it smoothed out the wrinkles that have started to form in all areas. It worked in only 15 minutes. They did a before and after testimonial without makeup (yikes).

I guess they liked me because they said I will probably be a "Featured Testimonial." We'll see... Dr. Rey probably has the final say. It was a little scary at first, but they made me feel like I was just hanging out with a bunch of friends. I felt so good as I drove home. I overcame the fear of rejection and had a great time doing it. One more thing to cross off my list...I'm growing everyday. If I can do it, you can do it too, go after those old dreams!
