About Nancy

ValdezNancyHeadshotHi there! I'm an actress in the awesome city of Austin.   I've been in the biz on and off since 2001 and so much has changed since my last 'on' a few years ago.  I took a break from pursuing the dream to have a kiddo and now that they timing is right I think it's time to get back in the game.

This blog was started to help fellow aspiring actors get a head start, this is the blog I wish I had when I started over a decade ago, I hope it helps at least 1 person make their dreams come true.  In this blog I will try to focus on the business aspect of acting, finding great resources for actors accross Texas and other apects of being a real person.  I have many other aspirations other than acting in theater and film and look forward to sharing life hacks that will make your life easier.  If you have any questions leave a comment below.  If I don't know the answer we will find out together 🙂

Break a leg!
