Check out this story about an aspiring actress named Racquel Bailey’s who paid her last $1,500 to put an ad of herself on a billboard in Atlanta to get movie mogul Tyler Perry’s attention for a movie role.
The 23-year-old actress bought ad space on a billboard at the intersection of Campbellton Road and Barge Road, and is using it to speak directly to the Atlanta film mogul. Her message: “Let me be your next leading lady.” The board, she said, addresses Perry himself as the “Top Film Maker in ATL.”
Bailey, who lives in New Jersey, said she purposely bought the space two miles away from Perry’s studios.
“I hoped he would see it while he was driving to work, or on his way home from work, or that someone would see it!” she told 11Alive’s Blayne Alexander via Skype.
And it didn’t come cheap; Bailey paid $1,500 for the billboard.
“My last money for the year!” she laughed.
The ad includes her website, which links to samples of her work, photos and biographical information. (Story Source)
