It was a great experience and I was able to work with some amazing people. I learned a lot about myself and my craft during that time. Plus, it made me happy to be able to work on something that I loved so much. But at the end of the day,
I want to continue acting for the sake of being an actor. Being a guest star helped me to remember how much fun acting can be! Acting is more than just what you see on screen- actors are really storytellers and do this because they love it. As a child, I used to perform in front of family members all the time; now, I’m getting paid to act! My life couldn’t get any better.
Why We Shouldn’t Write Off This Show Just Yet
Despite its low ratings, there is still a lot to like about Hello, Goodbye, and Everything In Between. For one, the cast is excellent. Julia Benson in particular shines as Claudia, the show’s female lead. She brings a warmth and depth to the character that elevates the material. Secondly, the show is smartly written. It doesn’t talk down to its audience or rely on cheap jokes. Instead, it tells a genuine story about love and loss that we can all relate to. Finally, it has heart. And of course, I can’t forget about the fashion! The clothes on the show are always so stylish and trendy. I’m constantly getting styled up for TV appearances and when I see what my character is wearing on screen, it feels like a whole new world has opened up for me. After the show airs, I find myself at Nordstrom picking out similar outfits because there’s nothing better than being able to wear what you want after spending hours wearing restrictive clothing!
I think one of my favorite scenes from Season One was when Claire had her party at her house while everyone else was having their holiday get-togethers. It showed how she felt isolated from her friends and family because she couldn’t celebrate with them anymore. She wanted everyone around her to know how she felt without saying anything, but it was clear that no one really understood what she was going through until they went through it themselves.
Least Favorite Things About Hello, Goodbye
I have a few least favorite things about the show. First, the love triangle between Claudia, Alex, and Ryan is completely ridiculous and annoying. Second, the show is way too predictable. Every episode follows the same formula: something happens to one of the characters, they all learn a lesson, and then everything is resolved by the end. Third, the acting is really bad. Fourth, the dialogue is often cheesy and contrived. Fifth, the characters are one-dimensional and lack any real depth or development. Sixth, the storylines are often clichéd and formulaic. Finally, the show is just overall not very good.
