Greg Orson, casting director for The Vampire Diaries, has canceled his late April 29 and 30 acting workshops that were scheduled in Georgia.
Acting might have saved Robert Ri’chard’s life. The Vampire Diaries actor noted, “When I was a kid there was a local acting studio down from my house. I grew up in a rough neighborhood, and the studio was a place where kids could go and get out of the gang-type stuff. I went there and it was the only thing I wanted to do. I shook hands with an acting coach there, Ms. D., and that was the start of my new life. She was a mentor and a powerful person in my life.”
