    I was really really hoping for a chance to get to help in any way I could to assist in this remarkable piece of history making, and maybe the exciting one of a kind chance of actually being a movie extra role in the Season 3 of SALEM, that I’m so engrossed in…the era, the history, the ways of life of these people …and the Indians contributions of their great role in the film, as their contributions even though MUCH was STOLEN from them, their customs and ways of living off of the land and working hard to preserve our earth, and only use what they needed, and being kind to this beautiful country with respect…I admire those Indians as I admire all the brave people that initially came to this new world to settle it, not knowing all the fight they’d have to endure to find their place in this new world…i feel for the Native Americans trying to preserve their land they’d had for generations, only to be robbed from them, and slaughtered by the white man and his greed to take their people to slaughter as well as what the innocent people that were tortured just because another self -righteous man/ woman with a bit of power bestowed upon him to use to control his own devilish plot…to aspire to rule, and raise himself to power no matter who they stepped on along the way.
    I used to play witches with my sisters when we were young, then went on adventures to learn about Indian tribes and rituals, and all their worship of many gods…was fascinating times back then.
    If I missed out on an opportunity to be anything, whether an honorary cast extra, or to help in other areas JUST TO BE A PART OF IT, I’d be so sad…if I’m not to late, please tell me what I need to do and go to for consideration of these… I’d been called by several casting agents for possible movie extras, and hadn’t even known that filming of SALEM was being done in LA. ….I am in East Texas just west of Shreveport, in between jobs, no kids or BFs to hold me back, so I’d be very much available and flexible. THANK YOU FOR TAKING TIME TO READ THIS, AND I’ll keep my fingers crossed, and say my prayers that there will be a spot for me anywhere…I’ll take anything at this point just to be a part of this and do SOMETHING IN LIFE TO BE PROUD OF AGAIN… :O
    Sincerely,
    Candi Calicutt Charles
