Your Advantage & Awareness

Academy Newsletter Interview - December 2021

From NYC, 14-year old Young Artist Academy™ Award Winner Avery Garcia shares tips for working in Entertainment. The Actress/Singer talks about her favorite projects and the value of patience.

I have two brothers and a sister. My family is the most important thing to me. They are very supportive of me. I’m very lucky to have them!    

I’m a people person. I get to meet amazing talented people. I have worked mostly in independent projects. When The Wolf Comes Home and Your Hands In My Hair are two projects that I loved working on!     

I’m just naturally patient I think. I think you need it in this industry. Sometimes you won’t hear back from casting for a while so it helps to be patient. I make it a point to audition and then forget about it. It’s a very competitive industry and you’re going to have disappointments. If you obsess over every role you audition for you are going to drive yourself crazy. I learned that the hard way!

Really it’s a great feeling to be acknowledged for my work and I am very grateful to the Young Artist Academy for this Award.  

Business Advice: Never take rejection personally. It’s not personal. There could be a million reasons why you're not right for a part and you just have to let it go. 

Look for Avery in a recurring role in an independent murder mystery series beginning filming in January.
