Young Actress Launched to Fame in 30 Days
Lindsey Tusing: A Rising Star
Lindsey Tusing is the latest New Faces success story. Lindsey joined New Faces less than a month ago and has already appeared in a feature film and on the hit UPN series "Veronica Mars". Here's what she had to say to New Faces about her acting experiences.
What made you initially want to sign up with New Faces?
I found the New Faces page online and it looked like it could potentially get me more exposure and get me more auditions than simply having an agent.
When you were first contacted for your movie role, "Dorm Daze," what did you think?
I tried not to get my hopes up. When I got the message a few days later to let me know I had landed the role, I was ecstatic!
Tell us a bit about the movie and what the experience was like?
It was my first film role and I was very nervous. I was so excited to have my own trailor for the first time. It was a blast. I learned a lot.
After that role you mentioned you landed a part in the hit UPN series "Veronica Mars," which New Faces also had a casting for, tell us about that experience from when you found out to on set?
I was thrilled to learn that I had nailed it. The cast and crew were amazing and I hope to work for them again.
How would you compare working on a film versus on a TV show, and which did you like best?
Television is a much faster pace. There was little rehearsal time. I just learned my lines and did most of the scenes in very few takes. For that reason, I would say I prefer television.
Where are you hoping to take your career in the coming months and overall?
I would like to audition much more frequently and get another film or television series under my belt now that I am with SAG [the acting union].
