Since she got her first break while working in a salon—where a customer helped her get a role to get her SAG card—Julie Meyer has appeared on a variety of shows in guest spots, from Southland to How I Met Your Mother to The Middle and The New Normal.
Her first real gig was doing sketches with Jay Leno on The Jay Leno Show, so she’s had some interesting experiences during the five short years she’s been acting in Los Angeles. Add another one to the list: She was cast in a supporting role on NBC’s upcoming Adam McKay/Will Ferrell-produced comedy Mission Control—starring Krysten Ritter—but the network announced last week it wasn’t going forward with the series.
As she shows in the video, Meyer has a remarkably positive approach to the Hollywood grind.
Next week on Polished: Comedian Beth Stelling talks about her worst gig ever.
