I got into acting by accident.

 

My son is an actor (see his IMDb). Due to COVID, casting directors are now often looking for entire families that can be filmed together.

I had so much fun auditioning with my son—and being able to watch him on a real movie set when he had a small role in The Black Phone starring Ethan Hawke—that I approached his agent about taking me on. They did.

(I'm still upset that we didn't land the Food Lion commercial. I thought I nailed the look, including the instructions to "think Walmart, not Target, when choosing your outfit.")
