When we first created the Dream Job series, finding the perfect actress to interview was at the top of our list. We needed someone who was really living the dream of acting, meaning landing roles and making it work as a real career path (without being from an industry family). When a mutual friend introduced me to Megan Ferguson, I knew immediately that she was our girl. Her IMDb page is already pretty impressive, and she’s most definitely on her way to bigger and badder roles. But best of all, her instagram caption reads “Stay-At-Home Actress” which I found hilariously self-deprecating (especially for a girl who’s already appeared on tv shows like Mad Men and Boardwalk Empire.) This year Megan’s hitting the big screen in the upcoming comedy Bad Moms, and we’re already watching the trailer on repeat. We met up with Megan in her classic Los Feliz casa to talk about auditions, being on set, and what it’s really like to head out to Hollywood with nothing but a headshot and a dream.
