I saw you acting in the part of a German scientist and Raj’s love interest on Big Bang Theory. You were portraying David Van Valen, a real life assistant professor at Caltech in Pasadena CA. But, then I woke up and realized it was just a dream.
Suggestion, see if your agent can pitch this idea to producers at Big Bang Theory. Maybe test the water with a cameo on the show as a visiting professor who went to MIT with Howard. And, descends from a line of German scientists. The character could say “I followed the family tradition and became a scientist. But, I really wanted to be a model like Tyra, Kylie or even the Golden Barbie.”
And, take some comedic acting classes.
If you could get this cameo, then you might be able to land the part as Raj’s GF. LET’S SEE IF YOU CAN ACT.
