Jordan Demeusy is a young actress in the NYC area. She has been seen for Matilda Jane, Totally Me/Toys R Us, and all over Justice's stores and website. Recently, you may have seen Jordan in episodes of Odd Mom Out, and keep an eye out for her Cra-Z-Art commercial!1. How did you get started in the industry?
One day I told my mom that I wanted to be on TV and in magazines. She did some research, I went in for an interview and I took off from there.2. What was it like going in for your first audition?
I remember that there were a lot of people in a small room. I had checked in with someone by the door and walked down the hall into a noisy room with posters covering the walls. I can remember the feeling of my heart beating out of my chest as I sat there with my family-watching other kids coming in and out of a room next door with big smiles on their faces. Then someone had called me into the room. I got up and walked over. The walls were white and there was woman with a camera. I was so excited and nervous at the same time as I posed with the product. Sadly, I didn't get the job, but I was still proud of myself for getting that audition.3. How did you enjoy shooting for Matilda Jane?
I absolutely loved shooting for Matilda Jane. It was so fun working with all of the people who were so kind to me. Also, all of their clothing made me feel so pretty.4. What was it like shooting for Totally Me/Toys R Us?
When I was shooting for Totally Me/Toys R Us, it was a little more rushed as I was the only kid at the shoot (usually, there are a few other models with me). I was always either getting changed or shooting. This was the first time that I had realized it was more fun for me to show off for the camera than to sit in the waiting room.5. How did you feel seeing yourself on the packaging the first time?
The first time I saw my myself on packaging was at Barnes & Nobel. My parents had brought me there to surprise me with a Scholastic/Klutz Finger Knitting book that I was in. When I saw it, I was so happy. We bought 4 copies and showed them to everyone in the store as well as all of my friends and even some of my teachers at school!6. How did you react when you found out you booked Odd Mom Out?
Since Odd Mom Out was a direct booking, I was completely shocked! My mom didn't tell me she submitted me because the odds of me getting it were slim and she didn't want to get my hopes up. When I found out I got the job, my parents were picking me up from school to go an vacation. When I came to the office to get picked up, my dad said to me that he has to have a talk with my principal. My heart dropped to the pit of my stomach. What did I do? On my way to the parking lot, I saw a gold star balloon on my car and my parents told me the news. I was so happy, I screamed and then felt silly because I thought they were pranking me-but they weren't.7. What was your time on set like?
My first day on set was at a huge house in New York. There were people rushing around. Between filming and tutoring, people did my hair and makeup. It was very exciting and fun for me, as this was my first TV show. The next two days were filmed in a history museum in Manhattan. The was a lot of background people there, but we had our own room where we went to an on-set school where we caught up on some work and played games. I saw a girl wearing "my" nametag and I found out she was my stand-in. I thought that was neat! The final day of filming was at Ripley's Believe It Or Not in Times Square. There were a lot of people outside wondering why the attraction was closed and I had 2 "bodyguards" walk me to where I needed to go. When we weren't on set, my friend Erin and I were role-playing for a play she read in school. I played the King. It was very fun and I was sad to hear that the series has ended. 8. What was the best part of shooting for Justice?
Every time that I shot for Justice, I had a blast. The crew and the girls are amazing. But I have to admit that my favorite part was playing ping pong and eating warm chocolate chip cookies with some of the girls that I met. This was the first job that I had a tutoring on set. I sure beats sitting in the classroom all day.9. Who have been some of your favorite people to work with?
Everyone I have worked with has been so nice to me and a lot of fun. I am happy that I still keep in contact with many of the kids I have worked with. Making new friends is the best part of the business.10. What has been your favorite project to work on?
I honestly have loved every single project! But one of my favorites is when I worked with Scholastic/Klutz for their Finger Knitting book. I was 9 years old and just started modeling. I was very excited to miss a couple of days of school. I got to stay overnight in Brooklyn and work in an old-fashioned soda shop where I discovered one of my favorite drinks: The Brooklyn Egg Cream! I also filmed in a candy shop for part of the second day where I was given a lot of candy. The production crew spoiled me!Is there anything else you would like to add?
I am so glad that I stuck with acting and modeling even though I went through slumps. There are more rejections than bookings. You have to go in, give it your all, and leave and forget about it. I missed some parties and lacrosse games, but those are the choices that I have made. I hope there are more bookings for me in the future.
