Q&A: Catching up with Charles Divins



Charles, from our talent board at Page Parkes in Dallas, was recently on CW's new hot hit show MELROSE PLACE. Before that he had a starring role on Passions. We caught up with him briefly via email to get the 411 on his prime time shoot...


HOW DID YOU GET YOUR START?
I was born and raised in Dallas and that is also where I got my start in the business. A scout from Page Parkes discovered me while I was working in the mall at the tender age of 17. From there I traveled the world trying to put together a career. I ended up settling in New York and that's when I started working in front of the moving camera. It started with commercials and short films. Then in 2002 I got my first big break. I landed a contract role on NBC's daytime show Passions which I relocated to LA for and that’s where I’m based now.

WHAT WERE YOU DOING BEFORE MELROSE PLACE?
I spent five years on Passions (NBC), a season on Half & Half (CW), guest stared on My Boys (TBS) and have done a few short films.

WHAT WAS IT LIKE FILMING MELROSE PLACE?
There is so much dirt ... Just kidding! The cast and crew where all very seasoned and new exactly what they were doing. That being said there was a real excitement and nervousness about being a new show and a remake of one that’s such a big part of pop culture.

HOW DO YOU BALANCE ACTING AND MODELING?
There is really nothing more than scheduling that needs to be balanced. Modeling is a nice compliment to the down time between jobs and auditions. The life of an actor as well as a model is very flexible.

WHAT'S NEXT ON YOUR PLATE?
As much as you can plan anything in this business! My plans are to remain in LA and seek out work with the people that inspire me.

Update on Nicole Kaspar...from DOWN UNDER!



All our models have been leaving Texas behind in the dust and traveling all over the world! Bo and Michelle in New York. Tricia in Japan. One of our top faces NICOLE KASPAR who signed with IMG Models last year, left her home town of Nacgodoches and is currently traveling and working around Australia and New Zealand. She also just shot for Tory Burch in New York. We caught with her quickly in facebook:

WHERE ARE YOU GIRL?
I am currently in New Zealand. I will be here until October 23 then off to Sydney until Dec. 5th. In my week a half, I have shot two magazine editorials and walked one show. Right now, I'm just running around for castings...it's crazy :)

HOW ARE THE PEOPLE DIFFERENT FROM TEXAS?
the boys here are VERY cute (just looking, no touching, I have a bf)! And the people here are so different, they all have tattoos and colored hair. They are very friendly and i LOVE the accents! The country is also so green and clean here and the scenery is to die for.

HOW IS MODELING THERE DIFFERENT THAN IN THE US?
The industry people are just overall nicer. If you are late to a casting they understand. Also the models here are shorter then in the US...Most are only 5'8. (SIDE NOTE: NICOLE IS 5'11")

SO WHAT'S NEXT?
After this project, I will go home for Christmas then hopefully up to New York, maybe Paris, or maybe to college? Who knows what I'll do next...because things change all the time!
