My First SAG Job: An episode of Veronica's Closet. I was in high school. My parents wouldn't let me do auditions until I could drive myself. (below) Zooey Deschanel (New Girl, FOX).
My First SAG Job: On As the World Turns. I played Holden and Molly's daughter Abigail. I desperately wanted the part. I was 11 and had been studying X and Y chromosomes, dominant genes and recessive genes. I watched the show the day before my audition and realized the two actors who played the parents both had blue eyes. I had just learned in school that two blue-eyed parents can't have a brown-eyed child. So I went into the audition and said if they wanted me, I would go get contact lenses to have blue eyes. They cast me and said, "Make sure she brings her contacts." - Emmy Rossum, Shameless (Showtime)
My First SAG Job: A [1990s] Peruvian kids' game show called Nubeluz. I had to dress up like a cloud and fly through the air. - Monica Potter Parenthood (NBC)
