Who doesn’t love a film where the characters have super powers? What makes this film even better is that the main characters are little kids who have super powers!

On Saturday, June 17th I get to participate in an event that is so important right now. It’s the Kindness Rules Anti-Bullying Fashion Show to raise awareness about the effects of bullying. The event is the creation of my friend Miss Jamison Scout in conjunction with Pearl Model Agency.
Thinking about Saturday’s event reminded me of a video that fellow actor Peyton Evans created about Bullying. Peyton and the actors in the video attend my acting school, The Actor’s Scene.
Let’s all work together to end bullying! The Kindness Rules Anti-Bullying Fashion Show will take place Saturday June 17th from 5-7pmk at Gallery 992, 992 Ralph David Abernathy Blvd, Atlanta GA. For tickets and RSVP visit KindnessRules.eventbrite.com
I recently got headshots done with Michael Justice of Hollywood Headshots and wanted to share my experience to help other Atlanta area actors who are looking for a great headshot photographer.
Here are some of my favorite pics from the shoot.
If you haven’t already, take 2 minutes and watch the video to get my take on what it’s like shooting with Michael Justice.
What has been your biggest struggle with finding a headshot photographer? Tell me in a comment below and I’ll be sure to give you a shout out on my facebook page @actressjordanrice

You might not know this guy, but you’ll be surprised to know who he is related to. You’ve heard of Denise McNair, right? She was one of the 4 Little Girls bombed in the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham. When I think of her, I think about how she was just a young girl like me when that happened to her. She will always hold a special place in my heart. ♥
So when I met Terrell (not Chris Brown- I thought he looked like him) after my performance in the world premier of Akil Dupont’s musical Underground and he told me that he was Denise’s cousin, I felt so honored. Here we were at Underground, which tells the story of slaves trying to escape to freedom while singing spirituals to strenghthen and guide them along the way, and I meet someone who is living proof of the struggle for freedom and equality that African Americans have endured even to this day.
It’s like just when you think, “Why do we have to keep telling these stories about slavery and the Civil Rights Movement?” you meet someone who is a direct descendant of the people we have read about and heard about in movies. That’s when you know that we cannot just say oh that was then and this is now. We have to keep telling the stories so that we can become better people, a better nation.
