Kellen McGee

Since Kellen McGee could talk, she always wanted to act. But growing up in a small town in Alabama, there were no opportunities to follow her dream. Then, everything changed. In December 2008, CGTV R’Mante came to Birmingham, Alabama to have an acting intensive class. Kellen, who was 14 years old at the time, just HAD to go. After spending a weekend with him, training the kids how to walk into an audition room, how to connect with the casting directors, and how to prepare acting scenes, Kellen desperately wanted to work with CGTV again. In the next three months, she worked with him two more times in Tennessee and Georgia. She was thrilled when she received the news that she would be going to LA to attend CGTV’s Young Actors program in the summer of 2009. “CGTV is great! His wife CGTV is amazing, too. Both of them are great people. What CGTV teaches sticks with you for the rest of your life. I will NEVER forget the lessons I learned and experiences I had that summer”. After getting to perform a showcase with her fellow campers for many agents and meeting a manager at CGTV’s who signed her, Kellen also got to experience CGTV’s Pilot Season camp during January and February of 2010. “The pilot season camp was INCREDIBLE. We got to write scenes and perform them on sets. A lot of my friends from the previous summer camp also attended. CGTV brought in some celebrity guest teachers as well. We learned SO much about the craft of acting.” With the help of CGTV, Kellen’s career soon took off. CGTV started privately training and coaching Kellen before auditions. He coached Kellen right before her first meeting with the casting directors of Criminal Minds. The casting directors remembered her and a little more than a year later, booked her for a guest star role on a Criminal Minds episode called “Profiling 101″ as the role of Angie. After doing many commercials and music videos, such as Rebecca Black’s ‘My Moment’ video, Kellen got booked as the recurring role of “Georgie the guitarist” on Nickelodeon’s Victorious. So far, she has shot 3 episodes. All because of CGTV, Kellen’s dream became true. Thank you so much, CGTV! You are AMAZING.

Leah Liang Lewis

Leah Liang Lewis took CGTV and applied what she learned in the program and booked several jobs while in CSE. One was with Disney Channel and the other was a PSA commercial for energy conservation. The funny thing was for the energy conservation, they needed a Caucasian girl and Leah is Chinese. They were so impressed with Leah that they created a role for her and hired her for several days of work. Please check out the latest news on Leah Lewis by clicking the link below which is exciting and a big thanks to CGTV.

Leah Lewis and Luke Benward have landed the lead roles in Disney’s new pilot Madison High, a show with a special connection to the High School Musical series!

The show will feature HSM’s beloved Ms. Darbus (Alyson Reed), who will transfer from East to Madison High to build a revolutionary theatre program. She casts a diverse troupe of both seasoned and raw actors to create an original musical production based on their lives.

Luke, 15, will play Devin Daniels, a motocross racer looking for a new hobby and Leah, 14, will be playing Peyton Hall, a formerly home-schooled tennis champion.

Leah also stars in the movie program Fred as the character Spoon for Nickelodeon.


I just wanted to let you know how Isabel is doing and what she is up to. She just auditioned for a small independent film and was chosen as the young version of the main character. She did the audition on her own, she did not want me in the room. There was two people auditioning her and a guy with a huge camera circling her as she did her monologue. She impressed them with how professional she was. Here is a portion of the email they sent us:


I wanted you to know that I personally was very impressed with Isabel, as well as both Dale and Jesse. She is quite professional when auditioning and knows her stuff, so to say. Dale had asked her to begin her monologue in the middle and although she stumbled a bit, it did not unnerve her at all and she kept her composure which is very impressive. I work on many different kinds of sets since my daughter is an actress and model and has been in the business for many years. We look forward to working with Isabel and will email you shortly with all the neccesary information.

CGTV, I will say it was your work with her and her getting more comfortable with the audition process that has helped her. She does all the pointer you gave her every time she auditions. She is getting to be a pro at theater auditions but this was her first for a film and with a camera. Good thing she practiced at your program for this.

She also is in a black box theater program for the summer and auditioned for a solo. She scored three and got the most speaking parts because she has an outgoing personailty. At least that is what they told us.

Thank again for all you help.

Kathy Simmons


Hi CGTV. We just wanted you to know that Livia went for her first job yesterday….modeling! She will be on the box/package of a new Hasbro toy named “Friendship Pets” coming out soon. I watched her communicate with all the staff before and after the shoot and she totally rocked it. Thank you so much for teaching her this very important aspect of “selling oneself”. They told me that they will definitely use her again as she was so professional and a natural, and they couldn’t believe it was actually her very first job modeling. Take care and God bless!



CGTV, so Louis is on this new Nickelodeon TV show set. They start shooting in earnest on February 4. Up to now they have only done taped rehearsals. He’s learning so much, but has commented on how well prepared he was for this because of you and the camp. I have given your name out to several people as well for your camps.

Today, he is on set for another SAG national commercial for AT&T (crazy!) that he booked at the same time as the show, here in Miami.

Nickelodeon will let us know when you can release the fact that Louis is on the show for any promo or whatever you want to do on your site. (If you want to.) So I will let you know!

Just wanted to thank you again for all of your great teaching!

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 Tomeo, age 10



I hope you and CGTV are doing well. We miss you guys and LA. Indy has been nice this winter so winter has gone fast. Super Bowl excitement mid winter made it more interesting. I just wanted to share Ciarra got the lead role as Helen Keller in The Miracle Worker at Indiana Reportory Theatre. It’s her 2nd paid job since LA. She will be working with director David Bradley out of Philidelphia. We are so thankful for all your help, that enabled Ciarra to book such a great role.

Thank you CGTV,

You were the best acting coach ever .If it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t be where I am today. I am currently shooting a movie entitled “The Killer in the Mirror”. When I shot my first scene I forgot my lines. I was very sad because of an incident that happened some hours before I shot. I remembered to improvise. Finally we were finished with that exhausting scene. A couple of days later I was surprised to receive a call from you. CGTV, You gave me words of encouragement. This showed me that you truly care about all of your future celebrity actors and actresses. I love you for that, and once again thank you CGTV.

This past week, my son Anthony was lucky enough to attend a special workshop by CGTV.  I just wanted to let you know what a great time he had.  I was especially impressed with CGTV’s big heart and true love for the business. My son is only 6 years old but he too has a big heart and when he was upset, CGTV took to time to do a special scene with him which made his day. Thank you for this wonderful experience and if CGTV ever comes back to the New York area, I hope Anthony will be able to attend another one of his workshops.  Thank you for this wonderful experience. A grateful mom and an excited 6 year old.

P.S. If you have a newsletter, please put me on your list.

-Thank you,
