IMTA Alum Madison Iseman was cast in Sony's remake of Jumani!  The film is said to be a continuation of the story based on the Caldecott Medal-winning adventure book by Chris Van Allsburg. Madison is starring on television in the CMT comedy series Still the King with Billy Ray Cyrus.
Here is a very sweet message Madison sent us a few months after she competed at IMTA:
It's Madison Iseman. I competed this year in IMTA LA 2013 and won 'Junior Miss Actor of the Year' and 'Most Sought After Actor'. I wanted to tell you I had the absolute BEST experience of my life. I had a blast. I just wanted to give an update that I'm now living in LA and signed with Momentum Talent Agency and Zero Gravity Management and couldn't be happier. I will keep you guys updated with successes to come. Couldn't have gotten to where I am and I am so blessed. I would recommend IMTA to anyone who dreams of continuing a career in the entertainment industry. I can't wait to come back and maybe pass out awards at IMTA and make others feel on top of the world like I did at that moment. Thank you for EVERYTHING!!

Congratulations Madison! We are so proud of you!
