Amber Smith during the height of her career was an American actress and model who was in demand throughout the 1990s and even in the early 2000s until her addiction to drugs and alcohol derailed her career. She continued to work but eventually the addiction cost her credibility within Hollywood and resulted in her becoming unemployed. However, Amber Smith is an example to young actresses of perseverance as she attempts to rejuvenate her career with her role in the movie "White Mule".
It would have been easy for Amber Smith to give up all hope of once again becoming an actress in Hollywood. Over the past four years she is best known for being part of "Celebrity Rehab" and "Sober House" television reality shows. These are not roles that one would generally place on the resume in a way to gain credibility as an actress within Hollywood, especially an actress who is now 42 years old. Yet she refuses to give up on her desire to once again find a place in Hollywood as an actress and to her credit she is taking a very smart approach with her release of the short adventure movie role "White Mule".
"White Mule" provided Amber Smith the opportunity to demonstrate her acting skills so that directors and producers have the ability to see her work as a sober actress. This movie show the casting agents that she is not just sober but also committed to working on her craft and not trying to get jobs based on the early roles in her career but instead on her recent work which shows her acting ability.
Life will sometimes knock a person down but it is the people who decide to get up and fight who win in the end. Amber Smith has overcome alcohol and drug addiction and then continued to pursue her goal of working as an actress in Hollywood by producing and releasing her own short film as a way to demonstrate her acting ability when no one else would hire her.
Amber Smith is showing Hollywood that she wants to act and this is half the battle. Don't be surprised if her acting efforts in her short film lead to her being offered a role in a film or television series in 2014 because she is demonstrating to the entertainment insiders of Hollywood that she is committed to the craft of acting.
