Soooo I met 50 Cent the other day…Correction…I shot a scene with 50 cent the other day for a show called Power. Its always funny to monitor how people behave when a celebrity is in close quarters with them. There are different levels of groopie-ness and I love witnessing it. 50 had the whole hood outside watching us. Girls yelling “50, its Ashley, remember me from Miami in 09,” like seriously? lol Then when shooting the scene, everyone jumped to whatever he said. I’m not going to lie, I had to sit back and realize that this guy sitting next to me at the table made 40 million dollars off vitamin water. I don’t even need to mention his successful rap career lol.
So anyways back to the point that I have yet to make. To answer the obvious questions, Power will have a season 2….and you will see me on the first episode. I guess only if I don’t get edited out, but who knows. It all went well and they said they would be calling us back to shoot another scene.
Not only did they call, but they had me come in to read lines for a small part. Seems like the Brad Pitt approach is working out pretty well. I went in to read and they told me I did great while I was there. That followed with an email saying they want to put me on hold because like me for the role, but just need a few more producers to weigh in. At this point I’m extremely hype because this is a big fricken deal lol.
4 long days…4 oh so long days I waited for confirmation. They then emailed me saying they were still waiting and would get back to me in a few hours. The suspense is killing me at this point. Turns out they went with a homie of mine. You can’t help but to be disappointed in yourself, but seeing a friend succeed is also a great feeling. Ultimately if everyone around you makes it, you will as well. Moral of the story, help people up because it comes back around..maybe,..and you get invited to their crazy parties filled with loose women j/k sorta… This is just the beginning of the Principal role Auditions of course..I’ll keep y’all posted.
