The moment I have been waiting 20 years for!

Ever since I was a child I have wanted to be an actor. 5 years old I started classes. After I graduated High School I kinda stopped but switched into Dancing. Well 2 Summers ago I auditioned for a movie, I posted about it here. I was looked at for a speaking role but because my hair was too short I lost it. They wanted me to come as an extra though. I was there from Day 1 of shooting and actually was in EVERY scene with background people in the movie. By doing this I was then promoted to playing the Captain of the Chess team, which was just me walking in the background with a Chess Team shirt on :lol but then they saw I had Dance Background and I was cast as the School Mascot for the movie. My dreams were becoming real.
I was on set EVERY DAY of filming. It was some of the best days of my life.

Now two years later the movie is seeing a limited release and our Red Carpet event is tomorrow. Tonight we had a promo event at a Roller Skating rink that we filmed at. Michael Copon (of One Tree Hill fame) flew in to host the event and for tomorrows premiere. When I walked in the doors tonight the Producer of the film saw me and announced "THE ROCKET HAS ARRIVED" as he said this I was SWARMED by kids, adults, everyone asking me to sign their posters.

Me the little boy who dreamed of being a star was signing his first autographs for a movie he was in. I have been waiting for this moment my entire life. I have NEVER been as happy as I am right now and it's exactly what I need because May was one of the worst months of my life.
I am so floored at how AMAZING tonight was and I am looking forward to tomorrow's red carpet even more now. I can't even put it into words.

Also there was this little girl who kept following me around and asking me to skate and dance with her. Then at the end of the night she asked me to sign her posted "To My Biggest Fan" It was incredible.
