We’ve been filming for three weeks as of now. Meg and I both live in the same New York mansion. Everything is paid for by someone who works with the movie crew, but I’m not really sure. All I know is that I get to live in a mansion. Meg and I have to go to the set every morning at 5:00. We film until noon then have lunch. Then we go to our private school at 1:00pm and finish our studies at 7:00pm. Then we go have dinner and sleep. It’s really busy, but on Saturdays and Sundays we only have rehearsals and filming so we get extra time to ourselves.
Meg and I usually pig out at the snack table for lunch, They have every type of cuisine! Mexican, Italian, German, American, Chinese, and a bunch more. It’s great. I still miss Ryder and my heart aches every now and then. I miss Trish most of all though. Recalls took three weeks, and Trish was there for every bit of it. It was so fun having her there. I still have fun with Meg obviously, but I just miss Trish so much.
Everything is just so strange to me. The bustling city, the lights, the noise. Even living with Meg and her parents, and my parents of course, it’s still just so weird. I miss the simplicity of home. New York is great and all, but it doesn’t have Ryder or Trish.
Another strange thing is having people wait on me. I have my own dressing room. Meg has more people for her than I do because Meg ended up scoring a bigger role than me, but still. I have a manager, a hair stylist, a makeup artist, a clothing designer, and a ‘maid.’ I don’t think maid is the right term. I mean, that’s what she calls herself, but she doesn’t just cook and clean for me. Her name is Leann and she cooks, cleans, and follows me everywhere I go getting me things I want. She calls herself my maid, but I call her a friend.
Meg has a manager, two maids, two hair stylists, a makeup artist, and a clothing designer. She got a pretty big role in the movie actually. She got to be the lead’s second main friend. Her character’s name is Jenna and she is supposed to be the dumb one, which doesn’t fit Meg, but she does so well and her acting is fantastic! I’m a little jealous to be honest.
My role is a medium role. I get to play one of the popular girls. There’s a main popular girl named Rachel who is a total bitch (in the script, not real life). Then she has two friends; Sierra and Margo. Then she has two more friends that are kind of like the second main populars. There’s Lydia and Marlee. I play Marlee. Marlee is kind of the half good/half bad sort of character. I like my role. I’m in most scenes, and I’m not just a ‘see them once’ character, so I’m content with my part.
Filming is projected to end in about seven months, then there’s some random stuff after that, which is my manager’s job to keep track of. Then we can go home. I know I’ll be over-joyed to see Ryder and Trish. Jayde kind of just cut off contact with Meg and I, probably out of jealousy. Either way, I’m looking forward to going back to simplicity. New York is great and all, but I love my friends more than anything in the world. And that is the most truthful thing I will ever say.
