Having conquered the Reality TV field, we are going to be looking to expand Cara's legit acting career. Interestingly, she had shot a couple of independent features prior to landing that fabulous gig on "The Biggest Loser." Now, we will be working on building her legit acting career.

GKM PROUDLY SIGNS TWO-TIME EMMY NOMINEE,
Jennifer Bassey was born in Chicago. Her first job in entertainment was as a singing Playboy bunny in the very first Playboy Club. She left her bunny ears behind and was accepted into the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London, where she got the lowest entrance marks in the history of the academy. Three years later, she graduated from the RADA with honors, finishing just below classmate and future Academy Award-winner, Sir Anthony Hopkins. Jennifer went on to the Big Apple, where she appeared in several Broadway and off-Broadway productions. Some of which included Neil Simon's "California Suite," "Not Now Darling," directed by George Abbot, "In Praise of Love" with Rex Harrison and "The Homecoming" (The Original Royal Shakespeare Production).
Her most recent off-Broadway credits include Moliere's "Tartuffe" and Wendy Wasserstein's "Isn't It Romantic," both staged at the Tribeca Playhouse. Prior off-Broadway appearances included playing "Katherine" in "The Taming of the Shrew" at the Roundabout Theatre, "Lady Macbeth" in "Macbeth" at the Stratford Theatre and "Love Letters," in which she co-starred with Ken Kercheval.
In 1983, Miss Bassey won the role of "Marian Colby" on "All My Children," initially signing for a five-month stint. Due to the incredible popularity of her character, she became a Contract Player and spent decades on the stalwart daytime drama.
Beyond her other dramatic successes, she has enjoyed a flourishing film career that includes such feature films as "Waxwork, Twogether," which also featured both the performing and directing talents of Nick Cassavetes, and "Dunston Checks In" where in a scene-stealing, skin-revealing moment, she received an orgasmic massage from an orangutan! Jennifer has achieved prime-time success, most recently as a Guest Star on "Law & Order," "30 Rock," Grey's Academy," and a recent arc in a return to Daytime in "General Hospital," among many other primetime shows.
In addition to her Two Emmy nominations (including one this year), she also received two Soap Opera Digest Awards, the second of which was shared with her co-star, David Canary, for Favorite Couple.
In her spare time, Jennifer enjoys outdoor activities and is an aspiring writer, whose latest effort is a new night-time series called "Nightfall," which is currently under consideration for production by HBO.
Her range is astounding as you can see reflected in some of her photos, above and below, and the breadth of roles she has portrayed throughout her amazing career.

JULIA DiVERGILIOis recent addition to the GKM family so she deserves to be featured, here.
She just booked her very first television role! She's got some pretty funny lines. It is for an episode for a new HBO Series that has just gone into production. That's all we are allowed to say for now.
Julia is originally from the hippie enclave of Berkeley, California and then her family moved to Sin City (aka Las Vegas) where she finished high school (Las Vegas Academy of Performing Arts) and then, at age 18, moved to NYC for the best training she could find. She's somewhat reminiscent of a young, but prettier, Sandra Bernhard with eyes that say mischief and a figure that echoes that sentiment. She's got that quirky-cute thing going and can go from wacky to very dark. It is going to be fun to introduce her to some people in the industry and very promising opportunities.
PHILIP HERNANDEZ was most recently seen in Guest Star roles on “BULL,” “BLUE BLOODS,” and in the season finale of NBC-TV's "THE BLACKLIST." He and James Spader really got into it.
Philip currently has a recurring role as Dr. Costa on “THE PATH,” and had a recurring role on "GOTHAM" as Chief Medical Examiner, Dr. Guerra. He appeared opposite Edie Falco and Tony Shaloub on "NURSE JACKIE," and with Debra Messing in an episode of "MYSTERIES OF LAURA." He also played pivotal roles in "HOSTAGES," and "ELEMENTARY," among others.
Philip has had multiple leading roles on Broadway. He is the only actor in Broadway history to star as both male leads in "LES MISERABLES." He also played lead roles in the Original Broadway Casts of "THE CAPEMAN," and "KISS OF THE SPIDERWOMAN."
Congrats to COLLIN CHRISTOPHER who is coming off a recurring character on Showtime's "RAY DONOVAN." See his website for reels from "Ray Donovan," "HIMYM," "Mad Men," and some commercials that might be familiar to you. www.collinchristopher.com

Some other GKM clients, past and present, include an EMMY WINNER, two other EMMY NOMINEES (just missed a win this year), a BROADWAY STAR ("Les Miz" and others), a MISS UNIVERSE, a MISS RUSSIA, a RHYTHM & BLUES LEGEND, and more.
We have, literally, accidentally discovered talent in the subway who never acted before who has gone on to feature films and Series Regular roles. There is someone who was a teen out of a small town in Florida with stars in her eyes and now she is a star in her own right. You just never know.
Of course, many clients start their career with print work (GKM clients have appeared in innumerable print campaigns), or commercials (GKM clients have shot countless national network commercials), or Day Player work and Under Fives. (We discourage extra work, even for our beginners, because we don't want our clients "seen" that way by casting.) Some are getting advice on their first headshots or are getting their first meeting with an agent or casting director. Some are meeting with acting coaches and just getting started. There are many working actors who are not stars, but they are the backbone of the industry. Some "overnight success stories" take twenty years (or more) to achieve.
An actor's representative must have patience for the long haul. An actor must also understand that this is a building and learning process and things rarely happen over night. Some will make it. Most will not. But, sometimes magic happens and that's part of the fun.
