How One Audition Led To 4 Seasons Of Atypical

I’m back for my 4th season of Atypical (Netflix) and I want you to know that it all began with one audition that my agent (at the time) told me not to bother going on.

Quick backstory: I had just come off of shooting a top-of-show guest star role on Grey’s Anatomy, and this role was a “possible recurring” on a show that no one had heard yet of called Atypical.

My agent didn’t want me to be ‘out of the loop’ for pilot season, but after reading the sides, and wanting to meet a casting office I had never been seen by before, I said, “Nope, I’m going.”

That “possible recurring” turned into four seasons of a role I have adored playing on a show that has uplifted and inspired fans all over the world.  My heart is full and I’m thrilled to be back.

Get all the details here.

I hope this reminds you to listen to your intuition and then speak up for yourself.

The Real Key To True Happiness

I’ve been pausing more lately, without distraction from devices.

I’ve been listening to birds sing in my backyard, marveling at the freckles on my children’s faces and enjoying mindful moments where I deeply and sincerely appreciate my life.

And it seems the more I do this, the happier I become and the more unexpected wonderful surprises start to show up. (In the form of auditions, helpful people + exciting offers).

So, just for today, give yourself the gift of a mindful moment. How?

Put the phone down.
Go outside.
Take in the scenery.
Love yourself, right where you are.
Just for today, let go of needing anything to be different.

unnamed
Let go of striving and pushing to change where you are. (more…)

My 2-Step Process For Post Self-Tape Frustration

Hope you had a fun + safe Halloween weekend. Personally, I’ve cried a few times this past week for all kinds of reasons.  You too?

As you may know, I got choked up while sharing my very vulnerable story about growing up with shame, anxiety + around mental illness (and how it has all shaped the work I do with actors). Click here to watch the video.

I cried again reading your beautiful responses and how sharing my story helped you to realize not only are you not alone, but that it’s okay to share your vulnerability and your pain as well.  In fact, your deepest pain can become your greatest gift, if you can face it, feel it and heal it.  I hope you now know, we are all in this together.

Then, over the Halloween weekend, as I was folding 3 piles of laundry on the bed with my ever-supportive husband, while my children were bouncing off the walls from a candy-induced sugar rush, I broke down again.  

Can I just say…tears are a breakthrough. So please, by all means, go ahead and cry your eyes out (especially if you’ve been holding it all in lately for whatever reason).

Ok, so in addition to feeling emotional about politics + pandemics, heck, I’ve had some great self-tapes lately, and I haven’t heard anything yet, and it all just got to me.

I know as actors, we each put our whole heart into what we do, and sometimes it’s hard to let it all go and be present in the moment. (Yes, I struggle with this too).

So I made this quick video to walk you through exactly what I do when I’m deeply frustrated (and how to release it in seconds).  And whether you use my method this week to deal with politics, pandemics or post self-tape, I truly hope this helps you.  (And you enjoy my Halloween makeup).

Click the video below to learn my 2 step process for post-selftape meltdown frustration.
(I think you’ll love it!)

I hope this helps you to know that every actor goes through these kinds of moments.  

I don’t care how many credits you have, (more…)

Waking Up Late + Cranky? (How To Reclaim Your Day)

So what do you do when you wake up late + cranky?  How do you not let it ruin your whole day?

I’ll admit, that was me last week, even after sharing my “3 tips to boost your mood + feel better daily.”  (We teach what we most need to learn, right?)

I’m glad to hear that my R.E.V. acronym helped so many of you recommit to your morning routine.  In case you missed it, I suggested you….

  1. Rise early
  2. Exercise
  3. Visualize

But what happens if you don’t rise early?  What happens if you sleep in, press snooze and wake up much later, feeling unmotivated?  (Hello, 2020?!)

I get it.  In fact, this past week, my sweet son interrupted my sleep multiple times because he had some spooky dreams, and it definitely made “rising early” a big challenge for me.

So, this week, I wanted to share how I had to modify the “Rise early” part of my morning routine, and still not let it throw me off my game +  tank my entire day. 

Watch the video below + find out what you can do when you wake up late + cranky (and how it will help you reclaim your power).

Yes, replace the R in “Rise early” for “Reset.”

Don’t let yourself go down a dark rabbit hole of despair just because you woke up later than you planned, or are feeling frustrated with yourself. 

Give yourself a break.  So, you didn’t wake up at 6am to do power yoga Zoom class.  It’s ok.

Forgive yourself + reset. (more…)

Ways To Boost Your Mood + Feel Better Daily

This past Saturday was #WorldMentalHealthDay. Honestly, I think mental health should be celebrated every day and not something we shine a spotlight on just once a year.  

In fact, everything I write + create for actors is always done with the intention of helping you achieve greater mental health, inner peace + ultimate fulfillment on the way to achieving all of your dreams.

Ok, so I know this year has been a roller-coaster ride for all of us in different ways. 

Maybe you’ve felt great one day, and been in a funk the next?

Perhaps you’ve gone from feeling productive to procrastinating…in a matter of minutes?

I get it and I’ve been there.  I’ve definitely had up and down moments, days + weeks this year.  Throw in political debates, social injustices + 8 months of a global pandemic, and well, it makes sense that our mental health has been challenged + tested.

But here’s what I’ve noticed, especially with all of the turmoil + uncertainty going on in the world…

If you are waiting for the outer conditions to change to determine how you’re going to feel on a daily basis, you will always feel powerless, because there is always going to be a condition that doesn’t please you.

When you begin the day reacting and responding to the news or social media, it’s easy to then turn against yourself (or even those around you) and focus on how you’re somehow failing or worry about what you haven’t accomplished yet.

So how do you take your own personal power back? 

How do you boost your mood + create a compelling future?

Remind yourself that no matter what happened yesterday, last week or last month….

What we do today is what matters most.” – Buddha

So, this is your chance to begin again, and use this week to reset, recharge + renew your own commitment to your own mental health.

What has been working for me this past week is by beginning the day (more…)

One Really Important Question To Ask Yourself Right Now

I just don’t want you to wait too long to get it back.

So today, I want you to ask yourself ONE really important question.

In fact, the answer is vital to your mental, emotional and physical well-being.

Watch the video below + tell me what your answer is in the comments.

15 Lessons I’ve Learned On My Journey Juggling Career + Family

I know we’re all trying to find some balance these days, whether you’re juggling parenting, homeschooling your kids, self-taping, your acting career, your day job, finding a new day job or just finding your sanity lately.

I was recently asked to be a guest speaker in Women In Film’s upcoming Speaker Series on Family Ties: Finding Your Balance While Juggling Kids + A Career In The Entertainment Industry.  I’ll be joining show-runners, directors, producer, writers and actors for an empowering conversation about balancing it all, and as I was thinking about it, today’s post flowed out of me.  

I wanted to share it with you, so you can apply these lessons to your own life. 

(And if you’re not a parent, you can swap “my kids” and add in “myself,” and anytime I reference “they” just replace it with “I,” so essentially you’re parenting yourself).

It’s definitely been a rollercoaster ride, but I wouldn’t change it for anything.  Along the way, I’ve learned to celebrate progress over perfection as well as these insights.  Enjoy!


15 Lessons I’ve Learned On My Journey Juggling Career + Family

1.     When I show my kids what it looks like to dream big,
they learn that anything is possible.

2.    When I show my kids what it looks like to fail + get back up again, 
they learn to not be afraid to try new things.

3.     When I show my kids what it looks like to be sad or disappointed, 
they learn that it’s okay to express themselves.

4.     When I show my kids what it looks like to cry, 
they learn that all emotions are energy in motion + meant to be felt.

5.     When I show my kids what it looks like to be a mother, an actress, a
wife, an entrepreneur,  they learn that they, too, don’t only have to be
just one thing.

6.     When I show my kids what it looks like to do your best + still not get the
job, they learn what resilience looks like.

7.     When I show my kids what it looks like to want something + have it not
work out immediately the way you want it, they learn what patience +
perseverance looks like.

8.     When I show my kids what it looks like to take care of myself, 
they learn to value their own well-being.

9.     When I show my kids what it looks like to pursue excellence, 
they learn to raise the bar for themselves.

10.  When I show my kids what it looks like to put the phone down, be
present, spend time, to truly listen to what they have to say, they learn
that they are valuable.

11.  When I show my kids what it looks like to be scared, uncertain or
fearful, but to take risks anyway, they learn to embrace the adventure
of life.

12.  When I show my kids what it looks like to find joy in helping others, 
they learn compassion.

13.  When I show my kids what it looks like to find the beauty in nature, 
they learn that abundance abounds.

14.  When I show my kids what it looks like to find the good in the toughest
of situations, they learn the power of a positive mindset.

15.  When I show my kids what it looks like to be kind to those who are
different than you, they learn empathy.

We all want the best for our kids, but it’s in showing them that it’s okay to fail, to be disappointed, to risk, to get hurt, to get rejected, to fall down, but to also always get up every single time, that we ultimately teach them to rise.

It’s funny, as I put this list together, I also realize that my kids have really been my best teachers.

I hope this helps you find some balance today with all you’re doing, embrace the rollercoaster ride, and also know that you can absolutely juggle both career and family.


Come join us for more on this conversation about being a working parent in the industry. RSVP HERE for the Women In Film Speaker Series: Family Ties: Finding Your Balance While Juggling Kids + A Career In The Entertainment Industry. It’s free and virtual.

Let me know in the comments below, which lesson spoke to you most today.

Here’s to a week of finding balance through it all.

-Wendy
