E! Online revealed today that Arden will be joining the cast of MTV’s “Teen Wolf.” And so here I am to brag about my friend! ;]
Arden and I first met at the San Diego Asian Film Festival in 2007. I won’t get into details, cuz’ this would be a really long blog entry, but in short, Arden and I have been through a lot. We’ve worked together, lived together, cried together, laughed together, prayed together… She’s one of my best friends who has supported me in so many ways and I am sooooo happy for her. I’ve seen her go through ups and downs, grinding and struggling, questioning this career choice, even almost giving it up… and through it all, I’ve seen her grow in strength, faith, and humility. I never had a doubt that Arden was destined for greater things and I am sure this is only just one exciting chapter ahead of many others. I’m so proud of her, so excited for her, and can’t wait to watch her in “Teen Wolf!” I guess that means I need to start watching from Season 1. Haha!
