Day 1 of filming The Fall Series

Hellooooo dudes and dudettes!  It's late at night (for me) and I am somehow up writing this blog.  I should be asleep by now, but I had such a great day that I wanted to share before the sand man pays me a visit lol.  Soooooo today was the first day of filming The Fall: Retribution!!!! Yaaaaaay!!!!!!!  All weekend and all day today I had been thinking about hardly anything else than the first day of filming.  Today, my day went by so fast, and I was surprisingly calm...only had ten seconds of panic haha.  Filming went better than I expected.  Well, I hardly knew what to expect.  You might be wondering, why on earth was I even nervous when I have two promo shorts out.  Well, that's because those promo shorts were just of me mostly, and I hardly had to have any interaction with anyone else.  Today was the first time I actually had dialogue with another actor (Julien who plays Valentine).  All day I knew I had my lines down and I figured since I knew it, I might as well not look at my script because I didn't want to over think and freak out.  So here comes take one, and after my first line....BAM I went blank haha!!!  I think I got nervous and spaced out.  One quick glance at my paper and I was like duuuhhhhh why did I forget that lol.  Well, luckily I got my act together (no pun intended) and that was the only time I blanked out.  But somehow I felt giggly inside and I tried so hard not to laugh, which worked out pretty well.  Obviously I can't give anything away, but today was such a success.  It also made me realize what an amaziiiiiing crew we have!!!  Dante Fortson and Stanford Greenlee are such great directors and I'm really happy that they're so down to earth and they have a sense of humor.  Julien Le Tohic, who plays Valentine, was really fun to work with as well and hopefully viewers will think we have good chemistry on camera.  Sonia Gamboa is an amazing makeup artist!!!  She made my skin look flawless :) and got rid of these dark circles of mine haha.  We were all just having a good time working together and cracking lots of jokes in between takes.  All in all, it was definitely a great shoot.  It just made me even morrrre passionate about this project.  I'm looking forward to my next filming day!  And I'm looking forward to sharing more with you guys.
