    That's too bad. I'm a 34 year old woman and look 16 and not one person thinks I'm older plus I'm hot to look at. It's Grimm's loss for not being open minded.

    I have to agree, I am a 44 year old who looks much, much younger, I hang out with the 20 somethings and get mistaken for one of them all the time. Grimm should be open to seeing all the talent Portland has to offer:)

    The acting business is very specific in their needs and wants. truth be told all you women that claim to "look 20" may think you do…but you really don't. maybe you should try looking for casting calls for roles tha are actually around your age and you'll have better luck instead of tryng to lie to yourselves about what you look like.
