Ella Grace Helton (Waitress Orlando) has booked two national commercials!

⛰ Ella and mom were walking up a mountain to start another incredible LA area hike when we got the call… Ella booked 2️⃣ national commercials! Her first LA bookings! So grateful that every aspect of our trip has been a true enriching adventure.  Our first week in LA for pilot season, we settled in, changed our time clocks back three hours, met some family on the coast and had headshots taken. Second week, Ella signed with a new print agency, had three auditions in a row and two callbacks! The booking is two commercials for one national brand. Still waiting to hear on another "on avail," or hold, for another commercial.  We are grateful to have found a wonderful ballet studio and acting school for improv. We have had some city fun (with more planned) and definitely have developed a love for the mountains with hikes to places Florida girls could only dream of. And more planned.  FUN FACT: Both auditions to which Ella got callbacks called for messy hair, even bed-head level — which Ella OWNS every morning. Her hair seems to be one of her signatures. She wore PJs to one audition and could have worn them to both. Keeps things fun!  ❓Have you ever worn PJs or some alternative thing or style (clothing or hair) to an audition⁉️ There's much discussion for not using props, but style… seems fair game.  @tihanyiphoto @lisatbeauty  #thisis5 #childactor #childactress #childentertainer #entertainer #commercialactor #commercialactress #actorslife #adventuresofellagrace #livingsunshine #browneyedgirl #curlygirl #triplethreat #younghollywood #tinyactress #booked #bookedit @schullertalent @abramsartistsagency #abramsartistsagency #newkidintown #industrykids
