{she's} just being Gracious | The Photoshoot

3/28/2011 10:08:00 AM

A beautiful friend {and inspiration} of mine is Grace LaRocca. Until last April she has been working in an oil refinery for 3 years as a drafter in the middle of nowhere and she was absolutely miserable. We would 'work email' about how we hoped to be in other places in our life. And she used the majority of her paid vacation on movie sets trying to pursue her dream job...but at the same time being responsible. But, she was miserable. You could hear it in her voice, see it on her face, and feel it when you were with her. But 'it paid well'. And then, the downturn in the economy hit and the place she was working took a downsize and her life took a turn for the best.... 

Since then, you can find her on set at almost any of the local movies, indy films and TV shows. She knows the cast and most of the people behind the scenes. In fact, she recently was the Director of Wardrobe for a pilot filmed in New Orleans. And...was she an extra on Twilight?

Lucky for me, she agreed to be the star of my camera last Saturday for a little photo session. And we had a absolute blast! We had 4 wordrobe changes & one bottle of wine. So, before we see how the photoshoot went, let me introduce you to Grace with a little Q&A.

The Acting Side:

Spill Love: What are some movies that you’ve been in?
Grace: Green Lantern, Columbiana (got my first lines in a Hollywood film), Revenge of the Bridesmaids, Treme, Looper, so many more, and I've {had} lead roles in some indies {&} commercials.

SL: Proudest job so far?
G: When I worked on Columbiana, the director told me to improvise with Michael Vardan {look him up}
