I paid my last respects, prayed for her spirit and said goodbye to my agent, Nancy Chaidez tonight at the Media City Church in Burbank, California. She passed away on April 14 to pancreatic cancer after two years (despite doctors telling her only six months).
It was a full house inside. Her family contributed to her memorial with song, poetry, reflection and prayer. Not to mention laughter, tears and one startling audio mic glitch. The large gathering at tonight's memorial service showed to me an outpouring of love and respect for a little spunky woman I met almost ten years ago.
Joined the Screen Actors Guild in 1998. And, did a showcase in 2004 in front of potential agents for representation. I didn't think I'd get any interest (since I was a bit older than the other actors in the showcase) but, three agencies were interested and one of them was NCA. Nancy was one of a handful of people in this industry who truly believed in me. I am honored to have worked with her this past decade. My condolences to her family and NCA.
Rest in peace, Nancy. I'm going to miss you!
