I sent the following e-mail to the entire EEO committee
Apparently Jason George’s Address is also in the list but he has blocked me. I have never to my knowledge sent him an email before. I was resonding to an email sent to the entire committee.
I am going to a play tonight that was the play Lincoln saw when he was killed. Do any of you know that he had his books burned by his father and that he was probably abused. He educated himself and now I feel abused for being a single white female who just wanted to be left alone and not bothered or lied about or abused on sets.
This is what I wrote:
I spent 5 years working on sets starting in 2003. I became SAG eligible and I was Tafted AFTRA for the first time by 2004. In 2005 I got breast cancer. I had to use the money I had saved to go SAG to save my life. I was working on sets like Gray’s Anatomy and Carnival. I have been a regular on more shows than I can count. I am sick of the hypocrisy. I am an extra therefore not an actor, even though by the time I was 30 I had a Masters in Performance Art Management and a Degree In theater at a small college where I went on a full Scholarship and graduated Phi Betta Kappy. ANd yet I get treated like a second class citizen by people of my own Union. Why? Because I am a white woman who happened to have been born in the same state as Mr Jason George. In fact, I was born 10 miles from him.
the Palley Center. In 2007 I worked Eli Stone for 30 days. During that time I was being harassed by background who kept implying about how I was on set for the lead. Both were having conversations with the ;ead and implyed to me that I was going to be gone. One day I was working and Jason George walked up to Mr Miller and told him “too bad she does not look good on tape” and then they both looked in my direction and Miller acted sheppish, Jason George laughed and they both walked away. I just wanted to work and be left alone and I actually told the background I wanted to finish the season and not come back second. One of the PAs asked me if I was being bothered. I told her eventually that I was sick of the unprofessional remarks of the background and that I would not follow an actor around who actually asked me out let alone one who i did not know about before 2007. I later found out that this PA was friends with the girl abusing me. She confessed to that in an e-mail. background on gray’s knew I was upset about the situation. At the same time I was being harassed by a man named jeremy Gilbreathe who had at one point assaulted me in appropriately. I actually wrote him a letter telling him to stop.
Courtney pulled me off of eli stone and central started treating me like I had stolen something or slept with someone. I found out that Jeremy was getting discounts for Disney so he was working there and I got pulled off the show. In January I am tripped on a film with crew from eli Stone and the AD from eli Stone even asked me if I was pushed. Some PA told me if I did not run all out i would be fired and so I tried and ended up in the hospital. When I get back to working I end up working the Jeremy Gilbreathe and the extras from Eli Stone and while they make fun of me, Jeremy gets close enough to me to breathe on me. they tell him how I am gone from eli Stone for good.
I keep working. I end up working on Bed Time Stories and the PA from eli Stone is there. I confront her because I want to know why she pulled me off. I kind of knew already, but I wanted to hear it from her. I tell her I am being abused and she gets rid of me and keeps the abuser. Snide remarks like how I am ugly, or smell funny when I was getting sick from Gluten Intollerance. And marquessa Moreland saw me naked in changing and knew I lost my breasts to cancer and chose to live to be on sets.
I show up to Bed time stories where I am told I am recalled to find they dont have a voucher for me and the PA there tells me I had cancelled. By the end of the week I am gone from Central. I told the PA from Eli stone I was not on sets for unprofessional reasons and there for my job and I get lied about and show up to be told I did something i would not do that would cost me my reputation and work.
I am in pain at this point. I was tripped so bad that I could not bend my knees for a week, but I work because I love it. I keep working and I had been working on Grays for about 4 years. Despite what Central did, I end up being featured in the Stand Up to cancer Campaign. I went through the hell of a mastectomy and the only think that gave me hope was my work.
I work Grays Anatomy. A man who worked Bed times when they got rid of me was there. A crew person from Eli Stone starts working the show. tells the cast and crew I am a lawyer playing a lawyer. Patrick Dempsey makes some snide comments about how no one would ever believe I am a laywer. Eric Dane after he is told by background that I made a documentary states she thinks she is an actress now. I end up hearing them say they will tell security someone is dangerous. I left that day also crying because a friend I knew was dying of cancer and I had met him there. I did not cry on set. I am told on set I am recalled. the extra who was on bed times is told by one of the actors that he is OK when I say I am recalled. I show up and some man I have never seen before tells me I am on a Watcher List by Disney and I tell him he is taking away the only reason I had cancer. that day the casting agent calls me and we talk for over an hour. He does not know why the AD from the show that morning he claims called him and that I worked 68 plus shows without a problem.
Later I am told by the same casting agent that it was because of personal stuff I brought to set and references a conversation two other people had about about some couple who met on set in europe and all I said was it was beautiful and I met my soulmate once but he was taken. I am sorry but if they thought I was talking about someone they knew in LA I have never had a boyfriend here. Lovers a few. Dates a few. Nothing substantial and I liked my life that way. I am private. More than others know. I left the east coast to get away from men who think women are here only to be their housewife and not to have career goals of their own.
I was slandered. Lied about. And I was told that Johnny Lee Miller’s name came up in all of this. Thoguh casting knew i used to hang out on a set with an actor and thought we dated and I told him he was unprofesional for even inferring that. I also heard crew as they drove by as I was being told I was on some list that “they proect their own.” I later found out that two of the cast members from Eli Stone joined the cast of Gray’s. I wanted to know from Jason George why he said what he did that day, and why when he and others from eli Stone showed up I was put on a list. And why they did it when they found out I had just made a PSA for CANCER. Every commericial for the first year of Eli Stone was about making money for breast cancer and it made me sick.
If Jason George can not even confront one of his constituents and talk to me and has to have Consuelo who in our meetings made remarks that almost made Patrika quit the day she brought up the lecture about Jason George and looked back at me when she said it, why is he the head of the EEO. THE EEO stands for equal employment opportunity. I have been brutalized, abused, lied about, slandered, and treated like a terrorist when I did nothing wrong. I have been left with nothing to live for and nothing to even fight for. I cant stand for hours because of my knees and when I beat the cancer I promised my maker I would never go back to being in an office, work as a lawyer, or ever give up wanting to act or be around actors. As far as I am concerned the Production of Eli Stone, Gray’s Anatomy, and ABC owe me for every day I have not been on set since 2009. I lost 20,000 plus a year and all the work I was doing to study entertainment technology and I have no interest in networking with people outside of the industry to work if I dont have a future on sets working. I had a fraud committed against me and CENTRAl ACTED like 5 years of my life were gone and the only way I would go back to work for them if I get justice for all the LIES.
I will not be punished anymore for being a white female and for working on sets. I had my profession ripped away by lies and I want my life back. Neither union did a damn thing. And I told the background of Eli Stone, including Marquessa Moreland who knew I was a cancer survivor, that I would have chosen to die if I did not have professional acting and being in the industry as part of my future and I feel like all the work I did to fight to live and to keep a GPA of 3.73 in entertainment technolgy at Santa Monica College has been swept aside like I was some lazy irresponsible spoiled child when I have been fighting to keep the only place on the planet I have ever felt safe from chauvanistic southern men and safe to call myself an actor.
