“Wander” Audition

Morgan Taylor, for Nellie, from New York, NY

COVER LETTER

I am an actress, an artist, a storyteller, a wanderer

I grew up in a military family, so I moved a lot as a child and I never settled down. New Jersey… Savannah Georgia… Virginia Beach… Rhode Island… trips to Kansas and Florida… and back again to good ‘ole Jersey.

All along the way, I watched movies and wrote science fiction and fantasy stories — dreaming of adventure and faraway places. I’m a fun and witty person, but I understand how wanderlust often goes hand-in-hand with loneliness.

Even with consistent relocation and change of scenery, I still dreamed of getting away.

In October 2018, I embarked on a two-week solo backpacking trip in Israel. Although I am neither Jewish nor Arabian, the cultures of the region have always fascinated me. I learned enough of the Hebrew language before my trip to order food, trek via public transportation and visit with locals off-the-beaten-path. It was breathtaking and left me eager to experience peoples and cultures and sites in so many other parts of the world!

There are so many places I want to see in my lifetime, but I don’t want to go alone.

“Nellie” offers a beautiful opportunity for me to expand my horizons as an actress while also extending the reach of my traveling adventures alongside Wander’s talented team.

I thank you for your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you!

All the best,
Morgan Taylor 💖
