The first picture was taken February 4th 2009 (13 years after starting my acting career) on my way out the door to test for ‘My American Family.’ These are the original audition materials for Mitch and Cam from that day. It was announced today that next year(season 11) will be our last. I’m so thankful and grateful to have had this job for the last 10 years and that I get to do it for ONE MORE year with this talented group of beauties. Fellow actors: Identify and follow your dreams, have unwavering belief in yourself and your talent, surround yourself with good people, be prepared and on time for when a lot of luck and even more persistence crack open that door of opportunity and then blow through it and leave it ALL in the room knowing you did your best. I’m proof it’s possible for you.
Rico Rodriguez (cast member) called it an “amazing ride.”
Nolan Gould (cast member) is “grateful for the run we’ve had.”
