Acting Updates

I’ve been posting so much about travel and (wedding) life lately that I thought it might be a nice idea to update you on what is happening in the acting world for me!

Since returning to Amsterdam as a married woman, I have had some great opportunities come my way! I was recently in an international phone commercial that is airing in India right now (watch it HERE) and an anti-wrinkle cream infomercial (I guess I’m at that age now haha)! Both times on set, I didn’t feel as excluded as I often do with the language barrier, as both productions were a cast and crew of internationals from all over. That was a welcomed change. It can get a bit lonely on set when you don’t speak the common language.

I am also part of the crew of a wonderful show presented by the InPlayers called ‘An Enemy of the People’, which will be playing late November! You can get your tickets HERE, with more Details below (show poster created by Quin Mero):

Though it can be difficult to find acting gigs for native English speakers in Amsterdam (compared to Toronto), things are slowly starting to pick up. I’m also attempting to make my own work and create my own opportunities with lots of passion projects on the way. I can’t say too much now but stay tuned for more announcements soon!

First Amsterdam Audition!

Good news, not even a month in and I’ve had my first audition in Amsterdam! Yay! It was such a lovely fun experience, this city is so friendly and welcoming.  Annnnnd I’ve already scheduled my next audition! Fingers crossed!

Apart from acting and work, I’ve had the chance to see more of this beautiful city! From flea markets (which I love, open rain or shine), to unique restaurants, music festivals, and to fascinating historic buildings.

This city has so much for offer any day, any time of day! And so much art everywhere you look!

Stay tuned for updates and hopefully some good news!

Cheers,
Melissa

I just got back from the lovely Cuba and am ready to hit the ground running! Cuba was so inspiring, filled with beautiful bright colours, incredible beaches and many local artists.
