Sister Hinckley photo




Marjorie Pay Hinckley when she was younger. They say this looks like me!


Post update: In one of my very first posts, I put up the above photo of Sister Hinckley and told everyone that people had been telling me that I looked like her. I thought it was fun and just asked for your opinion.
Well, how interesting was that!
A few weeks ago I was aproached by a director that said that every time he looked at a picture of Sister Hinckley he couldn't quite place it as to who he knew that looked like her. Then it dawned on him. "That's Tamilisa!" he said. He invited me to auditions that would be held this August. So I was surprised when I got a call to audition last week. They must be ahead of schedule! (unheard of in the movie world, unless you have divine help...perhaps!)
So, yes! I got the part! I will be portraying Sister Hinckley (from ages 18 - 37) in a documentary being done about President Hinckley. We will be filming in July. They are planning on cutting my hair short like a 20s bob!
I am so excited. I feel so priviledged! What a neat honor. I checked out some books from the library. It's time to read up about her life!

It does look like you. I actually think the other one from your older post looks even more like you. Cool. Can't wait to see the whole thing. (The movie thing, I mean).

Are you playing Sis. Hinckley in a movie? Awesomeness! What is it for? You do look a lot like her.
I got your post about sending that story into the Ensign and I think I'm going to do it, where should I send it? Thanks!
