Founder’s Tip

Tracey Moore keynotes
May 22 Networking mixer

TRACEY MOORE is Founder and CEO of The Spirited Actor and acting coach to the Stars that include, Terrance J (Think Like A Man), Busta Rhymes, Eve, Missy Elliot, Darius Rucker (Hootie and the Blowfish) and CEE Lo to name a few. Tracey Moore arrived in New York City to pursue a directing career, but she was suddenly sidetracked by the many opportunities that she was offered. Her first venture was CEO of “The Jokes on You! Inc.”: an ensemble of actors who performed practical jokes for hire. Through the success of her company, she developed lasting relationships with the many actors who were anxious to be a part of this wacky production. After five successful years of performing jokes, a director noticed the bulging files that Tracey had and asked her for a casting favor- and so Tracey Moore Casting was born. “Find a void, fill it,” says Moore, and with that mantra Tracey has gone on to cast for feature films such as Just Another Girl on the I.R.T., New Jersey Drive and A Brother’s Kiss. Tracey was also Extras Casting Director on the legendary Fox show New York Undercover during 1994 and 1995. Her commercial credits are lengthy; they include Nike, Sprite, Coca-Cola, New York Times, Miller Lite, Pontiac and Taco Bell, just to name a few. Tracey teaches a monologue and scene study class called The Spirited Actor. The highly sought after private coach is also the Star of the hit reality television show, “The Spirited Actor: The Search for Africa’s Next Hollywood Star.”
