Dr. Lisa Masterson sat down with Casting Agent Ajay Rochester to discuss her new show Cast ME! premiering on Tuesday, Sept. 27 at 8/7 on myxtv.com.
CAST ME is 30-minute mash up of humor, drama and desperation set against the sizzling backdrop of Hollywood, California where thousands of auditioning actors compete for a tiny handful of coveted roles. Whether it’s the lead in a TV commercial or supporting part in a Movie, in every episode we see the creative thinking of DK Casting’s owner David Kang, his ferociously honest casting Director Becky Wu, his hilarious Aussie import Ajay Rochester and the former child star Germán Legarreta – as they run castings for two very different clients and roles. Hopes and dreams on are the line as actors are put to the test. Brutal honesty is dished out like turkey stuffing to the aspiring hopefuls while the clock ticks and the clients throw last-minute casting curveballs. Some careers are catapulted, while others are cast out… on CAST ME.
After leaving Biggest Loser she gained some weight, and has admitted she used to starve herself to keep her job on the popular series.
Rochester is now the ambassador for the Eating Disorders Foundation. She has worked with The Make A Wish Foundation and is an advocate for breast cancer research lending her time to multiple breast cancer charities including the Field of Women and BCNA. Rochester is also the face and ambassador for Triathlonpink.com and walked the Great Wall of China to raise funds to build the Olivia Newton-John Wellness Centre.
Rochester is a trained actress having graduated from The Australian Academy of Dramatic Arts. She started her career as an actress in the film To Make A Killing. Her next film was The Crossing, which starred Russell Crowe. She also appeared in PJ Hogan’s movie Vicious.
Here’s hoping that Ajay’s story inspires! Whether you’re dreaming of becoming a Hollywood actor or just want to learn to love yourself a little more, Ajay Rochester can help point you in the right direction. Be sure to tune in to catch her new show and follow them on their social media!
