Hello there! Thanks for visiting my profile!
I'm a professional actress and model looking to network with other models and photographers! I am hoping to find good work from skilled photographers.
I started dancing when I was three years old, which is where I first found my love for performing. In the sixth grade, I began to participate in musicals and school plays, and I got bit by "the acting bug", and specifically fell in love with the idea of one day performing on Broadway.
I've played a variety of different roles over the years throughout the DC/ MD/ VA area; but the top three favorite musical roles of mine were playing Sandy in Grease (Adventure Theatre MTC), Mimi in RENT! (Theater Unlimited DC), and Eponine in Les Miserables (Act Two @ Levine).
I had my professional film debut when I was fourteen years old, with a one liner ("Nice Car!") in the movie "My One and Only", starring Renee Zellweger, Logan Lerman, Mark Rendall, and Kevin Bacon.
In 2012, I had my professional stage debut at The Keegan Theatre in Washington DC, in the musical "Spring Awakening" playing a character named "Anna". Directly following Spring Awakening, I got to appear in The Keegan Theatre's production of "August: Osage County" playing a fourteen year old rebellious pothead teenager named "Jean".
I am now a Junior at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA, pursuing a BFA degree in Musical Theater. There, I study voice under the instruction of Dr. Patricia Raine, dance, and various acting methods, combined with a liberal arts curriculum.
In 2012, I randomly fell into modeling when a few photographers insisted on shooting with me after seeing my headshots, and I realized that modeling could be another field of interest for me in addition to acting and performing.
Since that discovery, I have been working non-stop, networking and learning as much as I can. I have modeled for the clothing lines, "Colored Vintage" on Etsy, "Krissy's Klozet" based out of Hyattsville, Maryland, for the beauty and hair salon "Beauty at your Door" located in Bethesda, Maryland, for various freelance photographers in Maryland, DC, and Philadelphia, and most recently for "Mariner Magazine".
I am hoping to do more fashion and pin-up shoots. I am also hoping to be apart of more dynamic and creative shoots. I love a good theme. I am friendly, energetic, and very open minded- as long as you are respectful, sweet, and creatively sound, we should get along just fine!
Shoot me a message if you are interested in working with me! I'm open to any ideas that you may have! Comment on my photos, give me some feedback! Also feel free to google search me, watch some of my musical performances on Youtube, or follow me on Instagram @ lyndzisays2 .
Photographers and Companies offering paid shoots should feel free to contact me as well, either with the set rate of the shoot, or to ask for my rates (varies depending on travel, wardrobe, make up, etc).
Over the past few months, I have accepted a dozen TFP shoots. I welcome and appreciate messages to share ideas, and express interest in working together, but I can't guarantee that I will accept any TFP offers; however, they WILL absolutely be considered on a case by case basis.
I am flattered by the interest shown in hiring me for acting jobs, but I cannot consider any kind of TF or Unpaid acting work. Paid acting assignments only.
