One Bel Air boy's life has gone from fun and games to lights, camera, action.
Parker Brightman is a fourth grade student at Hickory Elementary School. Outside the classroom, however, Brightman is busy nurturing a developing acting career.
The 10-year-old started acting a year ago, auditioning for commercial and movie roles in California and New York, according to a release from A. Bright Idea Advertising and PR.
The episode was shot on location in New York City in early November, where Brightman met the cast and crew.
"I had the best time and learned a lot," Brightman said in the release. "They even gave me my own trailer and made sure I had plenty of food in between takes because it was so cold! I can’t wait for a chance to do it again."
The episode is expected to air some time in late December or early January, according to a story on ExploreHarford.com.
Brightman is on a roll as of late, starring in a short film produced by Spiritclips.com and parent company, Hallmark. The film, entitled "Look Up," was released shortly before Thanksgiving. It is, "the story of a father who teaches his tech-savvy kids how to connect the old-fashioned way before cell phones and video games," the release states.
Brightman will also appear in a holiday commercial for Furby.
The boy's parents, T.J. and Anita Brightman, said in the release that acting has been a great experience for their son.
Brightman, "is loving every minute of his acting experience and along with the new found attention is the same old kid who loves spending time with friends and family when he’s not auditioning for a new roles," the release states.
