Dear Casting Director,
I'm Mark Cabot.
Through Logan Meyers, a producer whom I met on the set of the film FastLanes, I was informed that you are currently casting for a 30 year-old biracial male who can play the part of an Irish loan shark. I hope you would allow me a chance to come for an audition.
I first pursued my acting interests under auteur Louis Dallas who inspired me to take this discipline to a whole new level. As I decided to study theater at the University of Belmonte, I became part of the Dramaturgy Society of which I was given considerable roles in a number of their Shakespearean plays- The Merchant of Venice, Othello and Romeo & Juliet. These experiences, both from theater and production, taught me patience, dedication and versatility. It made me appreciate my passion for the arts, and more than anything it gave me the bearing I needed as an actor.
Over the next few years, I auditioned earnestly and gain significant character roles in independent features (Lost Knight, This Life Alone and Taxidermy Dreamboat). Today, I am a professional actor with an active career television (The Cable Show, Thursday Nights Off, NCMIS: Victims & Lawyers) and stints in regional theater (The Montagne Musicale Theatre and the Feyton Improv Guild). I am a Union and SAG member for over 4 years. Attached is my filmmography.
I have great respect for this industry and in return, I offer my professionalism, talent and punctuality. If you believe, there is a role I could embody, I am available for screen tests and readings. Do give my agent, Dick Lucas from the DNM Agency - a call.
I sincerely look forward in meeting you.
All the best,

I am a Nanny who has been solely in charge of three children on a daily basis. Looking after children of different ages is not a job for the faint-hearted. My 10 years experience in childrearing has allowed me to build up a great reservoir of resilience, patience and energy which has resulted in a stable and comforting
environment for the children I care for.
Due to the recent divorce of my employers, the children are being sent to their respective boarding schools. Sadly, I have been given noticed to search for other job opportunities. Mrs. Whitford, of whom you know as a teacher at St. Agnes, has referred me of your need for a full-time nanny.
I am skilled in cooking, baking, cleaning, organizing clutter and tending to children's need at home and school. I respect any employer's stance on parenting as I have encountered are often unique and varied per family. I intend to give the best care I can provide, for the well-being and welfare of the children are my priority.
A brief meeting to discuss your parenting approaches, houserules, boundaries or any concerns would be greatly appreciated. You may call me anytime at 555-920-4370. I look forward to meeting you
