Is A Movie Career On the Cards?

I have a confession to make, and it's something that's taken me years to realize. Ok, don't laugh, but every time I pass through a movie set on the street, I subconsciously think I will be discovered, and catapulted to stardom. Here's how I imagine this would unfold:

I'm walking down the street, and the director spots me from an avenue away. He just knows I'm the star he's been waiting for his whole career! He yells out in desperation "Stop that girl! I must have her in my film! Just look at her gorgeous hair!!"

I finally notice all the commotion I've caused and try to reason with the director. "But I'm very happy in my career as a bedding designer. And I just recently started my own line of greeting cards for foodies and I'm really excited to pursue that! Why me? Why now?"

The director pleads with me "You have something I've never seen before in another New York commuter. You have an unparalleled beauty and an extraordinary spirit. Plus, your sense of style is impeccable. I must have you in my film, I will not take no for an answer."

I whisper to him "I will think about this, I promise you. But it will not be an easy decision. Can I have some time to think it over?"

The director agrees to give me some time, but I notice a single tear streaming down his face. He knows that in that moment he could lose me forever.

Don't get me wrong (and don't get excited if you are a casting director or agent), I have absolutely no desire to be a famous actress, or in movies. It's just a silly little thought I didn't even realize I had in my head. I promise I will let you know if it ever happens!
