Congratulations to John Nordlum on his retirement from the local board! John started his service as a board member and officer on the Screen Actors Guild Hawaii Branch board in 1988. He took a year off in 1989 and returned the following year, where he served until we merged the unions in 2012. He was elected to serve on the first SAG-AFTRA Hawaii Local Board until 2017. John’s accomplishments in the business are many. He was Jack Lord’s double on the original Hawaii 5-0 and worked as a stunt performer and double on numerous theatrical and television shows.

The local’s activities continue on a strong and united path. Members were offered many opportunities to gather together to learn and strengthen their craft. In May, they learned about diversity and the influence of Asians and Asian-Americans on the film industry. They had the opportunity to attend the Casting Access Project workshops sponsored by the SAG-AFTRA Foundation in June.

Kimee Balmilero did an improv workshop on July 13 and I heard she had the room jumping. We hope to bring her back soon. 

I did an Audition Clinic on July 21. We had the good fortune to have member Dennis Chun drop by. Dennis, along with other local cast members Taylor Wily and Kimee, were named series regulars on Hawaii 5-0. Congratulations to our local actors! Dennis told the class how important it is to study and practice their craft. The more you practice, the more comfortable and confident you will be.
