Veronica Castang Biography ((?)-)

Addresses: Agent: Bret Adams, 448 W. 44th Street, New York, NY, 10036.

"I was born in England and educated at the Lycee Francais de Londres and at the Sorbonne. I was trained in Art History and worked at an art gallery in London and at the San Francisco Art Institute when I first came to America. Onlymy complete ignorance of "show business" enabled me to finally take the plunge and attempt to be an actress. I must have had a strong motivation as I stuck it out during long periods of unemployment and not much encouragement, except that the people I auditioned for did say that I was good, they just didn't know what to do with me. Some times I longed for them to tell me that Iwas terrible, so that I would have an excuse to give it up. Anyway, ultimately acting is what I do and I seem to be able to make a living and sometimes be good and I do have an awfully good time. One has to have a good time, otherwise why bother with the madness one has to go through in order to act? I travelled a lot when I was very young: Yugoslavia, France, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Austria, Germany. I lived in Morocco for a while, ostensibly to teach English to a couple of French children. I wasn't very successful.I worked in a Chinese restaurant in London. I am fluent in French. My hobbies are swimming, bycycling, photography and old houses. I have just bought a late Georgian early Federal house in upstate New York. I am starting to be a director and have directed several one-person shows in the New York area. I ama Foster Parent. I love Ameria and am very grateful to her for giving me theopportunites that I have had here. There is something strange and special about being an immigrant, because one is in a country one has chosen to be in,rather than the one in which one was born. However, I still feel strong allegiance to England, which gave me the backbone and the strength to carry on, when I needed it."
