    HELP!!!!! I am a struggling actress and I was going to send in for this but I didn’t take down the email because I didn’t think, STUPIDLY, that it would get taken down this fast! Does anyone have the email from the craigslist add?? It’s gone now and the snapshot you have is too small to read. It’s Casting”something”@gmail.com.
