Introduce Yourself : Im a nobody by Melissa Ede

Im a nobody

I am a nobody really,. never really done anything exept for acting out a life that most cannot, even imagine what it must be like to live. If i was ever given the chance to work scripted or non scripted i truly believe i would be great at it, as i have had to act out a life that is make believe . Im witty quick with replys fun and very entertaining but like i say ! I am a nobody

Christine Marrello

No one is a nobody! Surely, you are a somebody! I hope you get the chance to act since you are probably great!

Melissa Ede

I believe it is not my ability or my gender that stops me, I believe it is someone believing in me .

Robert E. Wilhelm

Hey Melissa - everybody is somebody! Keep the faith!

Melissa Ede

Thank you, Faith i have lots, Enthusiasm is endless and belief is never ending :)

Tom Rasely

Your Melissa Ede...nobody else is. Find a local theater group and audition. If you want to be an actor, act. There are opportunities around, even though they don't alwayd pay or lead to fame. You gotta start somewhere.

Mary Ellen Gavin

Melissa--hear this! Nobody is a Nobody!!! You are a SOMEBODY! You are Melissa Ede...and we are all pleased to meet you.

Melissa Ede

TThank you for your kind words x

Benson Simmonds

of course you're a SOMEBODY! And if you want to be an actor then you need to start studying and learn your craft! GO FOR IT!!!

Melissa Ede

Thank you Benson :)

Benjamin B. Granger

It's usually the ones who think they are the nobodies that end up being the next Golden Globe winner.

Melissa Ede

Golden Globe is that a new breakfast cereal :)

Mike Farron

Well, nobody's perfect...

Leon Reaper

well until we are all well-known, technically we all are

Melissa Ede

Dorothea my confidence ? There really is nothing lacking there, I have appeared on mainstream tv and magazines and news around the world.

Curt Butler

... Melissa, (I'm a nobody) wrong approach... try this... "If, I'd of been somebody to begin with, I would of made a comeback!" ... now smile :)

Treasa Kerrigan

Melissa you need to believe in yourself. There is no such thing as a nobody. We are all unique with our own talents. Okay, not everybody is going to become a famous actor/director/singer/writer but at the end of the day it's what we think of what we achieve that matters. Maybe try some positive affirmations.

Melissa Ede

Great approach Curt but i wonder would that have got me as many new connections as "Im a nobody" did ? :)

Melissa Ede

Thank you Treasa :) my possitivity is endless,

Chris Tremblay

Actresses... Hahaa

Melissa Ede

:) Broaden your comment, olease Chris ?

Chris Tremblay

Just thought your post was a good twist from the norm. :)

Melissa Ede

Haha why thank you kind sir :)

Melissa Ede

Dorothea can you not see what i put "Im a nobody" worked as i wanted it too its not about the words you put ! its how you place them :) And acting is a performance so i disagree with you on that about reality people not being actors :)

Leon Reaper

I'm a nobody :'(...........waits for reassurance and sympathy

Melissa Ede

Haha bless you Leon is that ok ? :)

Leon Reaper

It'll do melissa, It'll do :P

Melissa Ede

Well thats great :) You can now have a fabulous weekend knowing i care :)

Justin Kapr

You'd be surprised as to how many fingerprints we leave on this Earth. Here, watch this. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0038650/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

Melissa Ede

That was great why do you want to save me :), is it greedy to want to leave footprints too ?

Gary Craig

No one is a nobody is they're loved by somebody.

Randy Brown

you are somebody. you found your true self. did you ever sell your virginity?

Leon Reaper

Because you got to be Randy for that :P sorry, couldnt help myself

Melissa Ede

Gary it is not love i seek, Randy no the auction still goes on, currently 22k and Leon :p lol

Tabitha Baumander

Melissa find some good classes where you live and go and study. Then you'll be a nobody with the skills to get somewhere. And that can lead darn near anywhere. Lots of luck

Anthony D Paul

Were all somebody!

Daniel Abello

Take classes, find meetings with other actors, screenwriters, directors on sites like meetup.com. do ANYTHING, just to get familiar with how the industry works... A small part can open bigger opportunities even if it's getting the crew coffee lol but believe in yourself and never sell yourself short! (Meaning, dont think your nevr gonna make it cuz with that mindset you wont) Good luck!

Tabitha Baumander

Anthony we are and Mellisa we all started at ground zero. the point is to learn and strive

Melissa Ede

I do believe in myself and the only trouble is i work, sixteen hours a day as a taxi driver, three hours a day networking trying to find opportunitys the rest is spent between chores and sleep, Any ideas ? Thank you all for comments so far :)

Daniel Abello

Contact your local casting directors . I started doing that like last month and meeting up with them, and one of the organizers for our local film society just found work for me like an hour ago about doing a commercial in San Fran, I'll link the producers name in a message and the company, but it's a commercial shot one day , union and non union pay, travels and accommodations covered. So little stuff like that is good. Remember you do not pay for anything , they pay you for your talent. So if you come across a gig wanting you to spend your money , it's a scam. Anyways, that right there I know will work and I'm the same way I am fairly new to this industry.

Melissa Ede

Thank you Daniel :) good advuse there

Daniel Abello

No problem, I'm not greedy, I would go out of my way if I could to help someone because I was and still am that person just starting and the person who mentioned it to me, I know she put her time aside and put me in consideration when I asked her for advice and help. Got to be humble , don't burn bridges with ANYONE, and last but not least, no job in this industry is too small, it will help in the future . I can't emphasize on it enough

Melissa Ede

All i can and ever will be is me :) and anyone who knows me will understand what i mean by that :) thank you again have a great night

Leon Reaper

Daniel...thats abit emotional...i almost shedded a tear then, but im the reaper, i cant. if people new i did then they wudnt fear death :P

Kristen Tinsley

Ugh... Every body in this business is referred to as a nobody, Dorothea. Even if you have done things before, you are still a nobody until you are a somebody and even the somebody's eventually become nobodies.

Melissa Ede

So this weekend i woild like to start a new conversation :) I truly hope you will all get invilved again
