Fritos on My Sub

I can finally share with you one of the things I’ve been working on lately…


…this little boy is AJ – though he was dressed like a little girl during our costume fitting…


…and as you can see, he was a total pro on set!

I’m not one of those actors who books a lot commercially (unlike my darlings Amy and Rachelle who are in ads almost every other week) but when I do, I HIT THE JACKPOT! My last national one was over a decade ago, for Disneyworld, where I got to “work” in Orlando for a week…

…it is really a numbers game, but something should be said that I got this shortly after I took a one-on-one session with Killian McHugh, the commercial coach seen on Conan O’Brian.

It’s not in this 15-second spot, but hopefully the version where I actually EAT the Subway Fritos Chicken Enchilada Melt will air. I took many, many, many choreographed bites (and spit them out afterwards – really yummy, but a little too early in the day for Jalapeños and Cheese).

    Congrats! That’s awesome! So, if you had to pick Killian, Carolyne Barry or Mike pointer for a first time commercial acting class who are you going with?

    • Lynn @ The Actor’s Diet

      I’ve never taken another commercial class – and this was a coaching session instead of a class class – so I don’t know!

  • Rachael

    Congrats! That is huge! And how fitting for you– a commercial about trying an ‘exotic’ new food!

  • Floey

    was so excited to see you in this!!! 😀

  • Jacky

    Congrats!!! Yes, that is quite a bite that early the morning. Fritos are my fav!

    As a fan and supporter, I am happy to see you wherever and whenever – commercials, on stage, films, TV, etc. Whatever pays the bills and allows you to keep doing what you’re doing is good by me. Congrats on the gig, and hopefully you get more soon. :-)

    When are we going to the bakery together?
