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.”

Elly C – Showcase Saturday – Toronto Kids Modeling

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

This week we will be featuring the charming and talented, Elly C!

An introduction to Elly:

“My background is Irish , English and Scottish. I was raised in Ottawa but currently living in Toronto.”

How she got into acting/modelling:

“From a very young age I have always loved to act and play different characters. I’ve always come up with creative story lines and even created my own personas that I love to act out. I truly enjoy the memorization process and becoming other personalities and characters. So becoming an actress was a natural and easy
decision.”

Favourite memory from an audition or set?

“My favourite audition was for a short film. It was my favourite because I got to show lots of emotion and act out two scenes, giving me more lines to read and more acting to do. The more lines the better.”

Favourite things to do in spare time:

I like to create from board games, to Lego worlds, drawings, books, music and more. I love to spend time reading and writing. I also enjoy singing ,play violin as well as playing imaginary and training for gymnastics.”

Fun facts about Elly:

-“My role model is Jim Carry , I would love to meet him one day!
-I often compose and write lyrics to songs I play on the violin.
-Last season I had a 6.0 batting average in soft ball.
-I’ve completed 2 spartan races (obstacle races) and plan to do more.”

Final thoughts:

“I know I will make it as an actress due to my love, passion and ability. I’m just waiting for my big break! :)”

Debbie K – Showcase Saturday!

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

This week we will be featuring one of our fun and fit talents, Debbie K.!

An introduction to Debbie:

“I’m all about fitness, sport, communications and inspiring others to
action. At 42 year-old, I’m a multi-sport athlete, content creator, wife and mother (aka supafitmama). I’m currently competing in masters track & field with a goal of medaling at the 2020 World Championships in Toronto. I love a good challenge, enjoy sharing stories and have never been one to shy away from the camera!”

How she got into the acting/modelling scene:

“After years of shooting with different friends and photographers “for fun”, an actress and fitness friend asked why I’d never sought out an agent. I didn’t have a good answer so I started making calls and found Max!”

Most memorable moment since joining Max:

“Working with Max has been great. I booked my first commercial this spring and was surprised to meet some fantastic women with unique sport and fitness stories on set. I’ve also kept in touch with the make-up artist and director, so I’d say, the people have been the most memorable.

Favourite things to do during her spare time:

“When I’m not training or writing, I like to soak up as much time with my family and friends as I can: weekend outings with my daughter, nights in with my husband, or a nice riesling with girlfriends. I have a ton of other activities and pursuits on my to-do list but for now, this is more than enough.”

Best advice for someone looking to get started in the industry:

“Don’t let your age, size, skin colour or anything else discourage you.
Instead, see them as needs and opportunities. Representation matters.”

Final thoughts:

“I’ve found that auditioning, like training, is a great exercise for life.
It hones one’s ability to show up with confidence, perform in the moment, trust the process and detach from the outcome. These to me, are valuable strengths to master.

And finally, in everything you do, act with purpose, love and faith.”
