Even though Reyes is a young woman, her dreams about being an actress began at an even younger age!

"I first realized I wanted to be part of the entertainment industry when I was very young. By the time I was 13 I realized that acting was what I was born to do."

This actress and model tried out for a role in "Casting" after learning about the film through an entertainment-related organization.

"I am a member of the United Film & Television Artists (UFTA). I am also their media coordinator. It is through UFTA that I learned about this film, and I'm so glad that I did!"

UFTA President Al Quinn, and other officers, requested that Reyes help promote UFTA (United Film & Television Artists) by being the media coordinator.

"She [Cassidy Reyes] has been a great asset to our organization." - Al Quinn

Reyes shared why she wanted to be part of the film.

"I love reading lines from a script and making them my own, and as much as I love acting, I would also like to get more into modeling."

Reyes' dad, Dr. Joe Reyes, is a UFTA officer. He, as well, has a role in "Casting."

"I have, along with my dad, been attending UFTA for a couple of years now. We have been actively involved with the organization and support what it represents in the areas of entertainment, and now the film!"

Reyes' film character's name is Cassie Reynolds, and her dad's character is Bobby Vaughn. Cassidy's dad's body building physique is one of the reasons he was cast as Vaughn, as his part requires that kind of "muscular look."

Examiner.com was told no more about film details until it is wrapped!
