Oakwood offers an ongoing opportunity for residents to learn from industry professionals, and today our agent, Thomas Richards, was giving a talk. Bex greeted Thomas and moved on, while David stayed and listened to Thomas talk about the ropes.
Parents asked questions about what to look for in an agent, what agents look for, what agents will do for a kid, etc. Thomas talked about when agents stick their necks out for clients, and when they don’t. He started talking about Bex.
Even though she has no credits, yet, he’ll put himself out there for her, he’ll push casting agents to see her, he’ll push to have producers see her … “Because I know she can do it. Because I know she’ll make me look good. Because I know she can get the work!”
Let’s just say David was a proud papa, especially because the one who asked about really pushing for a kid wasn’t one of the parents. It was the Entertainment Weekly reporter who had just spend 90 minutes interviewing Bex!
