Showcase Saturday – Jasmine L! – Toronto Talent Management Agency

Welcome back to Showcase Saturday here at Max Agency —  a successful Toronto talent management agency in Canada representing menwomen and children.

This week we will be featuring the multi-talented, Jasmine L!

An introduction to Jasmine:

“I’m from St. Catharines Ontario Canada. I went to a musical high school called Laura Secord Secondary School. I’ve played elite sports all my life. My first year of university was in Baltimore Maryland at Coppin State University on a full ride volleyball scholarship in Division 1 of NCAA. I also did pole vault and hurdles in
the states at the D1 level. I returned home last year to play on the best collegiate team in Ontario at Humber college!”

“This year I am taking the year off to focus on my music and acting career! I’ve sang in Toronto jazz clubs such as the Rex! However; lately I’ve been singing more pop/rnb music because that is where my heart is at!”

Why she chose to pursue modelling/acting:

“I got into modelling and acting when I was about 6 years old. My mom had me entered in many talent and modelling competitions and as a result of that I was scouted to an acting agency. Since I chose to become an elite athlete I didn’t have the time to get back into it. This year my life has taken a turn for the better and I’ve decided to pursue my true passion and join an agency because life is too short
to not be doing what you love!”

Her experience with MAX so far:

“I haven’t been with Max for a while and I just started going to auditions. However; Max has been very supportive and everyone there seems like one big happy family that I’m blessed to be a part of!”

Favourite things to do in spare time:

“In my spare time I play guitar, piano, drum kit, dance. I love to sing and draw. I play volleyball and also basketball. I love to workout. I enjoy going to open mic nights around Toronto and singing my heart out for anyone who will listen!”

Advice for those in the industry:

“My advice for anyone pursuing their passion in the music or acting industry is that you need to be 100% authentic. Be yourself. Now a days people are looking for a unique sound or look and there is nothing more unique then someone being their own authentic self.”

Some other interesting facts about Jasmine:

“I was captain choreography of my high schools competitive award winning hip hop dance team for 3 years in a row! I also spend a lot of my time supporting the lgbtq community! Alongside, supporting the movement towards providing more assistance and tools for those who suffer from mental health issues.”

At Max, we love to represent people with so many different talents and interests like Jasmine. Having special talents outside of acting or modelling can actually help you land those auditions!

Jade O – Showcase Saturday! – Toronto Acting Agency

Welcome back to Showcase Saturday here at Max Agency — a successful Toronto acting agency in Canada representing menwomen and children.

This week we will be featuring the wise and talented, Jade O.!

An introduction to Jade:

“My name is Jade Selena O’Donnell. My background is Trinidadian and Canadian, with my mom being from Trinidad and Tobago and my dad being Canadian.”

Her acting/modelling journey:

“I started developing a passion for acting and modelling around the age of seven.  Since then I have been in several plays, including musicals and dance recitals, as well as a few photo shoots.  In my last year of elementary school, I was recommended to audition for the Drama program that was offered through the Regional Arts Program at a high school in my community.  Upon auditioning I was chosen out of the ninety auditions and accepted along with sixteen other students to have Drama as my major throughout my high school academic years.  This is something I am very proud off and I continue to work hard at maintaining a good standing within the program.”

“Upon graduating from my elementary school, I was also awarded the award for Dramatic Arts.  In my Regional Arts Drama Program, I have learned and gained many experiences that has helped me to gain a better concept of the role of an actor. ”

Favourite memory with Max so far:

“My experience with Max Agency has been one that has been very exciting.  I am new to this agency and I was very thrilled at meeting my booking agent and hearing about the exciting, possibilities that I can encounter through this company. ”

Best advice she has received:

“My best advice about acting has been one that I have received was from my Drama teacher; and the advice was when taking over a role, dig deep into your personal connections and emotions to portray the character more realistically but never let your emotions get the best of you. I feel as though since I’ve heard this I have been able to connect deeper with the character I am portraying.”
