Below are photos of some of my favorite Actress Inspirations…
"The Happy Show"
Being an Artist has made me appreciate other people’s art. Today I was introduced to Stefan Sagmeister’s Art; His show, “The Happy Show” is showing at the MOCA at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood, CA. I was joined by my longtime friend/colleague Jen Alex Gonzalez. Now Jen and I met in an acting class over 8 years ago and have constantly competed against each other for different roles...
Strugglin Today ;((
The Struggle is Part of the Story… Today is Monday and I’m under the weather sick :(( Even when I want to stay in bed under the covers laying in fetal position, I chose this acting life to pursue, so I have to put my “game face” on bc The Show Must Go On!! And even if I don’t book the gig, (which seriously you have to hear 100 No’s before you get 1 YES!), I have to remind myself that “The...

It wasn’t my finest moment, but not my worst. (That award...

(It pays incredibly well and in this economy who don’t need a $) Cheesy commercial but who cares…the writing for this brand is getting funnier and funnier and they are using up and coming directors that I would like to work with in the future! I got partnered up with a hot guy who I had to undress. Not bad for a days work ;) I apologize to my...
INTRODUCTION INTO MY WORLD....
Hi I’m Elle Rodriguez, a classically trained Actress residing in guess where (Yup…LOS ANGELES). This blog is a Confessional, Picturebook, Diary and Birds Eye-View of my life as an Actress in one of the most cutthroat industries known to man. As an Actress in my early (wouldn’t you like to know), I have had ups & downs, been torn apart, failed and succeeded with scars to prove...
