When taking your child/ren to casting calls, it’s best for you to also come prepared and look presentable. Who knows? You could share the same fate with Linda Jameson…
Just when Linda Jameson thought her industry days were over, she was offered by CBS to appear in the recent episode of Hawaii Five-0. She did not even come to the casting call to present herself as an actor. She was only accompanying her daughter to audition.
Her daughter did not get the part, but Linda Jameson surprisingly got a spot for the TV series. The Casting Director whom her daughter auditioned for has taken a photo of hers and submitted it to CBS for the part. She would play as one of the parents anxiously making updates about their children who were kidnapped and kept inside a bus.
Linda Jameson was a former model and news anchor at KHON, appearing as reporter on Baywatch Hawaii. She left the news and entertainment industry in 2000.
“It was kind of flattering after 20 years of being out of the business. It was fun to be on a set again,” said Linda Jameson of her acting gig.
