Ask Bob Blume – Column #77– Starting an Acting Career Later in Life with guest Nicole Kafka

Welcome everyone, this is “Ask Bob Blume”, a weekly visual column with summary that discuss’ issues pertinent to today’s entertainment industry and appears exclusively here on Times Square Chronicles. I’m your host Bob Blume and president of Step Forward Entertainment, a talent management and production company located in both New York and Los Angeles.

Nicole Kafka.

Today’s column is column #77 Starting an Acting Career Later in Life with guest Nicole Kafka.  She is a longtime friend who I first met years ago when she was a staff surgeon at a hospital where I was the general manager of their clinical building during the early years where I was the Executive Producer of the annual Drama Desk Awards.

Fast forward to today and Nicole is a working actress client of Step Forward who trained to act later in life and entered it as a second career. She is currently between episodes of a two episode (thus far) recurring role on a network TV show.  Her story is inspirational to all of you, who have thought of entering the acting field, after a former career or currently in the field trying to get ahead. 

This is a column that you must see and hear Nicole, thus there will be no summary. However, if you invest the time to view the column, you will be glad you did!

Enjoy and have a wonderful week!
