I am Heading to New York City Tomorrow – Louis Tomeo

Hi CGTV, just letting you know that I am heading to New York City tomorrow. After doing 3 students films, 5 national commercials and a webseries, I have now also signed with a manager. Tomorrow I have an audition in NYC and I’m meeting with the first of three agencies (meeting with one each day from Monday thru Wednesday). My manager would like to get me into TV and film.

I just wanted to thank you for everything you taught me. Wish me luck and I will let you know how it goes!

Louis TomeoIt’s not uncommon for children to grow up watching TV shows on Nickelodeon, and 11-year-old Louis Tomeo is no exception. But when he tuned in to the channel last week, he didn’t watch just any old show – he watched his own show.

Tomeo, an Oviedo resident, is a cast member in Nickelodeon’s newest show, Every Witch Way, which tells the story of a teenage girl who moves to Miami and discovers that she is a witch. The children’s network debuted the show on Jan. 1.

“It’s like a dream come true,” Tomeo said. “I never thought I’d have a show on Nickelodeon.”

On the show, Tomeo plays Robby Miller, the younger brother of one of the lead characters, Daniel Miller. Robby and the two youngest Miller siblings are known as the “Terrible Three,” or the T3, and Robby leads them into various schemes and builds contraptions that don’t always work.

This is the first TV show that Tomeo has appeared in, but it’s certainly not his first foray into acting. He has also appeared in a few short films and national commercials for AT&T and Head & Shoulders.

Originally, Tomeo was discovered while attending CGTV, which is run by Adrian R’Mante, a graduate of the University of Central Florida and a former leading cast member from The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. A local agent spotted his talent and recommended him to a friend who manages young actors and models.

“[I became his agent] through a friend who worked at a local agency in Florida. She said, ‘This is someone I think you should manage,’” said Daryl Washington, the owner and director of Global Management 101, located in Pennsylvania. “I believed in him so much and I told his mom and I submitted him to an agency and she became his agent in Miami.”

That agent is Karen Greer, owner of Karen Greer Models and Talent, LLC. Greer has also been an agent for young stars such as Bella Thorne, Victoria Justice and Bailee Madison. Greer had met Tomeo at the acting camp and saw that he had that X factor.

“He has a great personality – he’s very enthusiastic and he’s got a natural charm about him,” she said. “He’s very confident with people and he did a great job with the time he had in camp.”

After becoming his agent, Greer quickly secured a role for Tomeo in his first commercial. She was also able to get him an audition for a show that was being developed by Nickelodeon called Every Witch Way. Tomeo auditioned in Miami, but what he didn’t know was that auditions for the show were also being held in New York and Los Angeles.

“It’s like a dream come true,” Tomeo said. “I never thought I’d have a show on Nickelodeon.”

In the end, Tomeo still got the part and began filming the show in January 2013. He and his family, which includes his mom, Kellie, his dad, Louis Tomeo Sr., his older sister, Victoria, and his younger brother, Vincent, moved to Miami while the show was filming.

The show was shot from January through May, so Tomeo had to juggle his schoolwork while filming. He said his school, Page Private School, was very supportive during that time and would FedEx the work to him in Miami. He also had tutors on set, so when he wasn’t working, he was studying.

“He’s on set for eight to nine hours and goes to school with the other kids,” Tomeo Sr. said. “They shoot for a total of five to six hours, then they leave the set and we go to the apartment they provide for us. Then he has an hour of homework and studying lines.”

Overall, Tomeo worked a 12- to 14-hour day, six days a week and still managed to stay on the honor roll and was voted vice president of the Junior National Honor Society. But Tomeo wasn’t the only one juggling multiple responsibilities – his parents also had to juggle work and parenting their two other children.

“It’s been pretty crazy. We had to take vacation time and swap on the weekends,” Tomeo Sr. said. “It’s a lot of work, but it’s been pretty fun to see how a show is made.”

Tomeo’s older sister also got to see exactly how the show was made. She was cast as an extra for Every Witch Way and made appearances in the third episode. Tomeo said that both Victoria and Vincent have been incredibly supportive of his work.

“My brother and older sister have been really supportive – they’re not bitter at all,” he said.

His agent and his manager have also been incredibly supportive and both of them said that they enjoyed working with him.

“He’s very confident and he’s like an old soul,” Greer said. “He’s very mature for his age and I never got a complaint about anything. I hear complaints from kids on set but always heard good things from Louis.”

Good things could be on the way for Tomeo, who recently met and interviewed with a large talent agency in New York.

“The good news is he is going to be signing with one of the No. 1 film and TV agencies called CESD,” Washington said. “They are a talent agency in New York. They just interviewed him right before the holidays and they loved him.”

Kellie said the interview went really well and that Tomeo is waiting to get his contract from the agency. He’s also waiting to hear if Nickelodeon will pick up Every Witch Way for season two.

“We don’t know about season two yet,” Kellie said. “They’re waiting for the ratings to come in, but we should hear from them in three to four weeks.”

In the meantime, the family will continue to watch the show, which airs every weeknight at 7:30 p.m.
