Law and Order: SVU co-star, Photo shoot with Alari Koel and more

I’m having a wonderful fall. Just did an incredible photo shoot on the High Line with Alari Koel– thanks for capturing sides of me I didn’t even know I had, Alari!

Am continuing my run in the play “In Love With the Arrow Collar Man,” with two final performances, December 1st and 2nd at Theatre 80 St. Marks.

I just took a class with David Caparelliotis at One on One, and I couldn’t recommend it more highly. He is a wonderful teacher, and as a side benefit, he exposed the class to a lot of new or recent plays that I hadn’t read before. (Anyone doing Annie Baker’s “Body Awareness, give me a call.)

And finally, a few weeks ago I made that NYC actor dream come true– I shot an episode of Law and Order: SVU. Watch for Dr. Alexandra Levy on the episode “Pathological,” coming January 10th to NBC.

 

Shot a co-star on Red Oaks

First off: I love this show. When my boyfriend and I first discovered it on Amazon, we ate up the first and second seasons.

Set in the ’80s and starring Paul Reiser, Jennifer Grey, Richard Kind, Craig Roberts, Oliver Cooper, Alexandra Socha and Alexandra Turshen, among others, and created by David Gordon Green, Red Oaks is like a quality ’80s movie stretched out to three delicious seasons (two available now, one coming). The acting is stellar, the nostalgia is nuanced, and the growing up pangs are… well… pangful.

So I was thrilled to audition for casting assistant Candice Alustiza, and even more thrilled when I got the booking for a small day player (co-star) role in the third season, directed by Amy Heckerling (Clueless). I had so much fun, people couldn’t be nicer, I learned a lot, and Jennifer even made a “no one puts Baby in a corner” joke.

The third season won’t come out for a while (winter ’17), but here’s a preview shot of the best 1980s hair I’ve ever had in my life. They even painted on the frost!
