Talent in the Spotlight for @Kids_Casting: Lani Brooke Lum Actor, Singer, Dancer.
This week’s guest on our Talent in the Spotlight series* is Lani Brooke Lum, a model, actress,
singer, dancer, contortionist and one of our Featured Talents**. We are happy to share this interview with Lani’s mom Crystal who has some amazing insights into raising a gifted child and balancing work and play.
Lani is just 10 years old but already has quite an industry experience. When did she first show interest in acting and modeling?
Lani first showed interest in modeling at a young age, I would say she was about 3 years old. She has also had such a big presence in front of the camera, and over the years her personality grew. She was probably 5 when she started to really want to act.
Many parents see artistic potential in their kids but are not sure where to start developing the child’s talent. What were your first steps in starting her career?
The first thing I did was ask her if it was something she was interested in. Next, I researched a lot, and I do mean a lot for local agencies as well as online casting sites which is when I found KidsCasting. We started small with boutique modeling, she had also done pageants since 9 months old.
This week Lani was #1 KidsCasting Featured girl, congrats! How long have you been using KidsCasting, and how did you find out about us?
Thank you, we’re excited! I think we’ve been using KidsCasting for about 4 years now. I first found out about KidsCasting through looking on Google.
