Hollywood, CA, March 15, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- ActorsE Chat, a Pepper Jay Production on the Actors Podcast Network, announced the March 7 episode featuring an interview with actress Dawna Lee Heising. After years in the business and a series of roles in which the actress was prominently featured, Heising is now being offered starring assignments. Interviewer, Actor and former Wrestler Ric Drasin questioned Dawna on her latest lead roles, her love of acting and the training she undergoes to be assignment ready.
ActorsE Chat, an informational website for actors, was the idea of John Michael Ferrari, Creative Producer, Director, Editor, who says that the multi-talented Heising’s rise to fame after many years in the business gives inspiration to many actresses who seek fame, but are unwilling to expend the patience and hard work required. John Ferrari and Pepper Jay are tag-team performance coaches in Los Angeles, California. They coach actors, singers, musicians, public speakers -- anyone who wants or needs to be in front of an audience. Students who have recently hit the headlines include Liquid Blue (Pop Album of the Year – LA Music Awards), Nikki Nova (Top 10 International Taiwan Idol), Allison Iraheta (Top 4 American Idol, Season 8), and Gisell (Winner: Talentos Premios).
