On July 25, 2013, young actress and model Ashley Dekker, 18, responded to an usedview.com article concerning a film project. The article was about an organization looking for actors for an upcoming film, and Dekker responded!
The Southwest Florida Chapter of United Film & Television Artists (UFTA) has plans for a film project on casting, called “Castings.”
One plan for the film is that it be used to help educate those new in the entertainment business, showing them the dos and don’ts of casting or auditioning.
Ashley Dekker discovered UFTA online and has promoted herself in the areas of acting and modeling (see slideshow).
This dark-eyed beauty resides in Amsterdam.
“I am 18 years old, and I live in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I just read about the UFTA casting, and I am very interested.”
From the photos one can tell that Dekker is a model. Acting is her love as well.
“It’s my dream to be an actress since I was 4 years old. I also love to sing and dance. I have been singing and dancing since I was a toddler.”
Dekker seems quite serious about acting, and she has trained for it. She, as well, shares about her role models.
“I began private acting lessons at the age of 7. I have also studied acting in school.
My role models are Selena Gomez and Ariana Grande. They motivate me, as they sing and act, and I love that too!”
In addition, Dekker says her role models, and herself, also have bubbly personalities.
“Besides being very motivated, I am also a strong person, and I fight for my dreams. Nobody can ever stop me from that.
It’s a big dream of mine to be famous in the United states and all over the world. I know that it’s the dream of many girls, but I will never give up trying.”
Justin Bieber and Dekker’s mother have words this young entertainer believes in.
“I keep Justin Bieber’s words, ‘Never say never,’ in my a head a lot. My mother always told me too, ‘If people don’t laugh about your dreams, then you don’t dream big enough.’
In other words, sometimes you have to fall and stand right back up if you want to be someone ‘big’ in the hollywood scene.”
Thank you Ashley Dekker for sharing about yourself, your dreams and your plans to possibly cast for the upcoming UFTA film, if not others.
It is understood, to actors like Dekker, that even though a casting or a gig may not happen, one should not give up and move on to the next opportunity.
Since Dekker discovered UFTA’s casting through usedview.com, this Examiner says “Break a leg!”
