IMTA Alum Jessica Biel Guest-Starring on New Girl!

IMTA Alum Jessica Biel will be guest-starring in the upcoming fourth season of New Girl with Zooey Deschanel according to The Hollywood Reporter.  Jessica Biel will play "the hottest scientist in the world" and a rival wedding guest to Zooey Deschanel's character!
New Girl returns to FOX on Sept. 16, 2014.

Jessica Biel amazed all of us at IMTA in 1994 when her beauty, acting potential and singing and dancing abilities caught the attention of the agents, managers and casting directors who attend every IMTA Convention looking for new faces to represent. Jessica gave an exclusive interview to us in 1998 after starring in the hit WB television series 7th Heaven. You can read the entire archived interview here!

Here's an excerpt from that interview:
How has your life changed since you attended the IMTA Convention?
Jessica: I went from amateur to professional actress thanks to my personal manager Diane Hardin and my agent Jeff Morrone who I met at the IMTA Convention.

Would you recommend attending an IMTA Convention to other aspiring young actors and models?
Jessica: Definitely! You will meet people who can change your life and make your dreams come true!

One of our IMTA NY 2014 Contestants got some great press! Model Connie Barna is featured in the Bucks County Courier Times!  In the article, Connie said, "I was in my glory...With the runway, they announce your number, they turn off the lights,” she said. “They have three gigantic photos of you in different poses. You have time to get to the center point of the stage. You do your walk all the way down to the end of the runway.”  Connie won five awards at IMTA.  Her IMTA Director, Mindy Sills of John Robert Powers - Philadelphia said she arranged a meeting with an agent for Connie and, "He absolutely adored her,” said Sills. “She’ll be great for pharmaceutical ads, print ads, things like that. They love that hair (as well as) that beautiful personality.”

Congratulations to Ms. Barna and Ms. Sills for the wonderful article!  
Please check it out for more details and more gorgeous photos of Connie Barna!
