the help

Last summer, Danny and I auditioned to be extras in "The Help" movie. It was filmed in Jackson and Greenwood, and we both got called back! We went to costume fittings in Greenwood, and they gave us each three different outfits for the day of filming. I was scheduled to film at Brent's Drugs in Fondren with about 20 other people. Danny was scheduled to film outside in downtown Jackson. The day of the shoot, I had a really bad scheduling conflict with work (as we had just returned from Jamaica and I had just taken a full week off) so I couldn't make it. I was very sad, but Danny still got to film! He took some pictures on his phone (which I don't think I can legally share yet?), but he basically had to walk back and forth behind Emma Stone like a hundred times! Haha! It was such a neat experience for him and we can't wait until it comes out in theatres this fall! Watch the trailer below, and everyone should read the book, too! Sidenote - Kathryn Stockett (the author) graduated from my highschool! So cool!
