Struggling Local Actress Lands Gritty New Role as Data Entry Clerk

INDIANAPOLIS – After working tirelessly to break into the professional theater scene since her graduation from Butler University in 2009, former Theater Studies major Rachael Cardwell has landed a gritty new role entering data for S.C. Clarkson Ltd.

The talented struggling actress, whose only recent stage credit includes playing Lady Montague in a community theater production of Romeo & Juliet, joined up with the accounting firm’s existing crew members Monday.

While not the meatiest role of her career, Cardwell will still get the opportunity to work under acclaimed certified accountant, Jim Hockley – believed in accounting circles to be one of the finest auditors in three counties.

“We’re just very happy for Rachael,” said the 24-year-old’s mother Denise. “She has worked incredibly hard to get where she is today and even though it’s not quite her dream role, at least now she might become a little more self-sufficient.”

“She’s going to do just great.”

Meanwhile, Miss Cardwell revealed Monday that, because of the relative allure of honing her craft with the small business, she was forced to turn down a challenging role operating the cash registers at retail chain Target.

  1. You’re just seeing her from behind. From the front, she looks like Nancy Grace. A little more “harpy” on the make-up, though.

  2. Well I haven’t seen her audition, but I’m guessing I’d casting-couch her… just speaking statistically.
