Work experience: I worked on a film this summer entitled Molly and the Good Shepherd as an assistant director. I am originally from Los Angeles, and my whole family is in the film business (my father is a director and cinematographer and my mother is a stunt woman), so that is how I got the job.
I also babysit a lot. It's a good thing I don't have a real social life
