Letter from the Editor
elcome to our “Hollywood Issue!” I can’t believe this issue is number twelve for us. It has been one amazing year. A lot has happened for Bridget Marie Magazine in such a short time. A fashion show, a window display, I’m even starting to meet strangers that have heard of us. This Magazine would not be possible without the genius knowledge of our Web Master Miguel Ocampo. He litterally brings my imagination to life month after month. His belief and dedication to Bridget Marie is an inspiration all in itself. Thank you Miguel!
To Joe Lyman, Rickie Bocanegra, Melissa Ulloa, Jennifer Veal and all the models... Thank you for your time, your commitment and your energy. Most of you I hardley knew but now I feel I have friends for life. Thank you to all of you readers out there because of you Bridget Marie lives on!

So you want to be an actor? Step 1: Learn How to Act
By Phil Brennon/About.com
Acting is first and foremost a craft. The best of the Hollywood actors understand this and no matt how far they have come in their careers, they are constantly looking to improve upon their craft. They take classes, work with acting and dialogue coaches, they study life experiences, etc.
Step 2: Location, Location, Location
New York and Los Angeles are where most of the casting directors work and live. So, many of the shows that are shot in Canada or other cities within the U.S. are still cast in LA or New York. So, ev though you don't necessarily need to move here, keep in mind that it is where most of the action
Step 3: Be Willing to do What it Takes
You must take the time to master your craft. If that means sacrificing a relationship or a few friend ships along the way, so be it. I know that sounds rather harsh, but acting is not a 9-5 job by any stretch.
Step 4: Commit Yourself
The best actors are those who are willing to let themselves be 100% consumed by the role they a playing. They physically become the person they portray.
Step 5: Be Nice
Hollywood is all about helping those you know because they might one day be in a position to h you as well. So, you need to remember this steadfast rule -- be nice to everyone. From agents' as tants to fellow cast members to whomever you meet in Hollywood. Remember, that assistant you treated poorly two years ago might one day become a casting director, film producer, talent agent or whatever. And trust me, they'll remember those who stomped on their toes on their way up the ladder.
Step 6: Focus On The Craft -- Not the Agent
Agents are a necessary evil, but they do not make you or break you (as much as they like to thin they do). As many actors will attest, simply because they have a powerful agent does not guara tee their success.
Step 7: Take Some Improv
Beyond a crisis situation, improv is one of the few styles of acting where you have absolute freed to discover what things you're good at, and which things could use some work.
Step 8: Know Your Range, Then Break Through It
Initially, it's somewhat important to find a range that works for you. It helps people (meaning, casting directors) know who you are and often when you're starting out, it's those memories that you paid work. But that doesn't mean you stop developing as an actor. Use the character traits you've discovered to get yourself working. But continue to learn new facets of your person.
Step 9: Be Persistent
The trick is, you have to get out there. Meet people and let them know what you are doing. It's absolutely essential to your success.
Step 10: Have Patience
Rare is the true "overnight success." Sure, there are those actors that seem completely unknown o day, only to dominate the limelight the next. But the reality is that there were years of hard work and preparation that led them to that "sudden discovery."
e ven n is.
QUICK NOTE ON AGENTS:
If any agent makes you pay for their services up front than don't walk, RUN away from these guys. Legitimate talent agents only get paid when they get jobs for their clients. After all, what incentive do they have to find you a job if you've already given them their share in advance? No matter what they try to tell you, or however they try to validate charging you up front (e.g., personalized service, guaranteed jobs, headshots, etc.), do not under any circumstances pay these individuals a cent.

STYLE REMIX “Hollywood Edition” Kristen Shelby is a fan of Bridget Marie Magazine and emailed us asking if we can turn her into someone from “Old Hollywood.” So we did. Using a dress that cost $2.00 from Rewear Warehouse and some pearls that were $3.00 from L.A.’s fashion district we were able to transform her on a budget. Once the wig came on she morphed into a classic starlet.

Dan Payne Interview
“You control your destiny if you are always willing to get up one mor How did you get into acting?
Fell face first! ...sort of! I had been an athlete for quite a while and enjoyed playing in front of crowds but that career ran it's course ...ok, ok, my body quit wanting the punishment! At any rate, I called my brother in Australia and we decided to fulfill our childhood dream of making movies together. The road took some turns but began there. Before taking me all the way home via a 5 year stop in London, England. Hmmmm, that didn't really answer the question did it! I fell--on purpose.

Can you tell us what we might have seen you in?
I am currently filming an amazing web series called Divine. There is a Hallmark movie called 'A Family Thanksgiving' playing right now that I did with Faye Dunaway and Daphne Zuniga. I recently did a movie called Mulligans which I am very proud of, which can be seen on movie channels or rented from a Blockbuster type thing.
Who is your biggest inspiration?
It would be hard to pick just one person! My family has always been there. My wife, brother, sister and parents! They have been amazing at helping eachother find success in whatever it is we are pursuing. I also have a brilliant circle of friends who are always there for me!
If you can co-star with anyone who would it be and why?
That is a tough call... I would be honored to work with Johnny Depp, Robert Downey Jr., Rachel McAdams, Jennifer Connelly... each of them seems to honor the craft and give everything to their work. As far as comedy, I would love to work with Ryan Reynolds and have the chance to work with my best friend Dave Coulier. They all seem to have a self awareness that allows them to be confident and humble all at the same time.

Tracy N Africa One womanâ€™s journey to following her passion

Hanging with the kids I am sitting at the Watoto Wa Baraka with Beatrice, Joyce, Erick, Simon, and Albert. We finished dinner about 9:00pm and are now playing on the computer. Beatrice is 14 yrs old, and wants to work with computers as well as run her own orphanage. She hopes to take care of HUNDREDS of kids who are vulnerable and in need. She prays to God that all the kids at WWB have food, love and peace. She also prays for internally displaced persons who were misplaced during post-election violence. Erick is a staff member of the orphanage who works in the field for the sponsored kids of WWB. He does school and home visitation to find out what the children need. Most kids live in the village but he still has to walk 10 to 15 miles a day. Simon is a crazy silly boy who doesn't know if is 10, 11, 12 or 13 years old. He can't remember :) Simon wants to be a sweeper when he grows - up, which is good because he sweeps everyday at the orphanage. Just now he changed his mind and wants to be a pilot. Now he wants to be a football player. He has a lot of decisions to make! Even though it is past their bed time, the kids are still watching football. Well everyone but Simon, he is still sweeping! The kids say hello and GOOD MORNING! God Bless all of you and we send this message with much love. Tracy, Beatrice, Simon Erick
