A wise man once said…..

I can’t give too much more away, but last week, working with Bruce Dern was quite a surreal experience. He immediately looked at me & said, “Play the game & just dance with me.  You are magical.” WE DANCED!!! From someone who’s been in the game, living publically private on screen for decades, indeed there were magical moments of wisdom & classic tales…one after another, after another…and another 😉  It was endearing, insightful & made me remember why I started & love acting more & more every day.  Not to mention we were thrown a 7 page dialogue scene by the end of the night.  Rather than underestimating my abilities, I trusted & we worked hard together.  Bruce reminded me we were a team, “There’s no “I” in team…& you my dear are an incredible parter.”  He thanked me!  That day he made me feel like his partner & equal regardless of the years of mastery he had in the business.  Sometimes theres that one “wise man” who comes along at the right time reinforcing the confidence & validation you need to hear.  Everyone could use some positive reinforcement & a challenge to understand you are capable & exactly where you are suppose to be.  “The right teacher will appear when the student is ready.”  I received just the knowledge I needed to hear that day to take a step back & embrace the moment after grueling, long, dark hours and say, “Chauntal, you are more than capable, you are Possible & keep doing what you do.”  Encourage those around you to let their light shine! More updates to come.
