*********CREDENTIALS OF DANA L. HARRIS, ACTRESS*********
SUPPORTING ACTRESS EXPERIENCE:
On June 3, 2013 - awarded a SUPPORTING ACTRESS ROLE (Mrs. Greene), a regular store customer. It's a comedic role in an upcoming feature film entitled, "I DO, MAYBE?" See the cast video at this link: www.youtube.com/watc... . The filming of my segment commenced in April, 2014 with an anticipated release date of the movie will be by the end of the year.
LIVE TV/REALITY TV/COURTROOM EXPERIENCE:
March, 2014 - Acting Role in the hit Christian TV show, "Sid Roth's, "It's Supernatural." Filming commenced in Peachtree City, GA. where we did some reinactments for this popular t.v. show. I also had a featured/speaking role as a Malaysian woman.
November, 2013 - Worked as a Guest Juror twice on the hit National Television Show, " HLN After Dark," a CNN Affiliate Network, where we heard cases from around the country presented by legal experts along with their evidence. Then we rendered our decision as to whether the alleged perpetrator was guilty or not. We each also get a chance to comment on the subject matter in question that day. This is "LIVE" television that is aired Internationally. My role was a deemed a reoccurring one until the show hired a new Producer who decided to end this show and go into another direction.
Additionally, I am a freelance writer in the process of writing a story which the Producers of the Nationally Syndicated hit Reality Show, "Divorce Court TV" with Judge Lynn Toler said, "It sounds like a book." Little did they know that was exactly what I was planning to do....write a book about my troubled marriage/relationships as a healing tool for women across America :-) I was filmed April, 2012 on the Divorce Court TV Show along with my husband. The Producers stated that I was a natural who did an excellent job and portrayed myself like a professional actor!
Therefore, I didn't have to follow their suggestions on what to say or do. In fact our tapings were deemed by them to be one of the BEST of the season. As a result, the Producers decided to make our segment into a two day series which initially aired on February 3 & 4, 2013 & reruns began July 11 & 12, 2013. Here are the clips of the show where I appeared (keep in mind that I've lost 100+ lbs. since it was taped and i now wear my hair short & naturally curly):Full Episode copies are available upon request.
