Some of you may have noticed that it’s been a few weeks since I posted. Though I made it to all 4 days of French Quarter Fest, I disappeared from this blog after posting on the first 2 days. The good news is that my long-awaited journey playing Lara Lee Candie-Fitzwilly in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained has begun. The days are very long and the demands are many so I haven’t had even a moment to post that I haven’t have time to post.
Lara Lee and Calvin Candie, played by 3-time Academy Award nominee Leonardo DiCaprio, live at their Antebellum plantation home, Candyland. Surrounded by Academy Award nominees and winners Christoph Waltz, Jamie Foxx and Samuel L. Jackson, I get to wear the most amazing costumes and hairdos.
It is my privilege and pleasure to be a part of this epic movie. Please pardon my temporary absence from my dedication to this blog, my ongoing journey from L.A. to my beloved New Orleans.
