Directly following her attendance at CMTC 2019, Naomi Sogbein from Kingston, Ontario booked a principal role in an upcoming series!
CMTC alumni Naomi Sogbein can be seen in the first Hallmark Movies Now Original Series “When Hope Calls” (2019), and Oprah Winfrey Network’s holiday movie “The Great Holiday Bake War” (2022).
The day after returning home from CMTC 2019, 7-year-old Naomi was asked by Micheline Blais of CastNorth Productions – whom she met at CMTC – to submit a self-tape for an upcoming Netflix series. Micheline from CastNorth Productions stated that as soon as she met Naomi at CMTC, she thought of her for the role in the series.
“The 2019 CMTC was the second time our daughter attended the conference. We both deeply enjoyed our time at CMTC 2019. The conference is an amazing opportunity for new talent to learn from the best in the business and helps to build those vital connections for future opportunities. There is so much information that is provided within the workshops that you will learn something to help your portfolio, your brand, your network, etc. Finally, the friendships that we made while at the conference will indelibly support this journey that our daughter is on. If you are interested in acting, modeling, singing, or dance, CMTC is an amazing venue for you to showcase and develop your craft. The experience and connections made assist you in best positioning yourself in a very competitive arena. I highly recommend CMTC. I have no doubt we will be attending a future conference.”
Naomi also has a strong passion for theatre. In January 2023, Naomi played the Fairy Godmother in a “Disney Descendants, The Musical” production. She continues to learn the complex art of telling a story with confidence and the right emotion in her ongoing acting training through LeBlanc School of Acting and routinely trains with a vocal coach who helps her strengthen her technique.
