Now that The Brand has tried blonde and brown, I spoke to the producer for the project/trailer that I am cast for which I think has the potential to be groundbreaking and TV changing like other shows like The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, and even Friends, and he felt that for the part, he wanted me to find a “happy Medium”, because the blonde was a bit too eccentric, and the brown a bit too boring. We decided to agree on Ashey Blonde, which would give me a much more “Summery and Florida Look”, and I told him I would get it colored today. He sent me some pictures of hair color that he thought would look good, and I went in and we nailed it at my parent’s hair salon. Everyone who has seen my hair today has been blown away, and when I went into the Pharmacy to get some lotion for my skin this morning after it was done, the cashier said, ‘I love your hair”, and I smiled and responded, “Thanks, I just got it done”, and she smiled and said, “You are such a handsome boy”. I love when people say that to me not just because I’m Arthur Kade, but because they can see how beautiful and unique my looks are apart from the greatness of “The Journey”.
Everyone at my parent’s salon was complimenting me on my new hair color, and I could see all of them beaming as I walked around after it had been completed, and touched up by my step-mom, who is considered one of the top hairstylists on the East Coast. I emailed the producer the picture of it, and we discussed everything for the shoot for the trailer this Saturday (I am attending the grand opening of Recess on Friday, and then hustling to NYC in the morning, “Kade Style”, killing it for an 8 hour shoot, and then hustling back that night for my grandparent’s 55th Anniversary party at a Russian restaurant), and he also connected me with the costume designer and wardrobe specialist on the project/pilot who has done work for Playboy, and other great mags, and I emailed my measurements so we could plan my looks to get me ready for the photo-op (This production is being handled so professionally, and timely, and I think for my first principle role, I couldn’t have asked for more, and it will probably propel me to a major motion picture once casting directors see me nail my gay doctor role).
I can’t even describe my excitement working on this project because I think it is so original, can open the door for other young actors like myself, and could potentially thrust us to the forefront of Emmy winning television. I just finished an audition for an industrial in NYC and am heading back for my trainer, and the VIP/Press party at Recess, but the audition was very basic (We just slated on camera, showed our frontal region and profile and walked off), and booked by my agent, and I am off. It’s amazing that we working actors go through the effort of hours of work or travel for 3 minutes of work, but it’s all worth it to become brilliant at The Craft, and the feedback that I have been getting on my latest videos tells me my acting has reached into the upper echelon of talent like my young pers in Young Hollywood.
