About Bobbie Shaw Chance:

Bobbie Shaw Chance began her acting career at only 17 years old with the help of acclaimed agent to the stars and former vice president of ICM talent management, Jack Gilardi.

Bobbie Shaw Chance aka Acting Coach to the Stars. ‘E’ Entertainment began her legendary career starring in the “Beach Party Films” as a young ingénue with Franky Avalon. She went on to star with Rob Reiner academy award winning Richard Dreyfus and Larry Bishop. In “The Session” New York and Los Angeles’s first improvisational comedy group that ultimately paved the way for future successful shows of its kind, such as “Saturday Night Live” and “Who’s line is it anyway.”

When “The Session” split up, Bobbie married writer Larry Chance, had 2 children Allison and Richard, starred in five independent feature films and began her crusade with The Abused Children’s Foundation in conjunction with The Free Arts for abused children. She invented a process by incorporating Theater games and on-stage improvisation as a means to treat the children’s emotional wounds. As a result Bobbie has been successful in getting hundreds of children to open up and learn to trust others through the arts.

In 1990, while raising her two children Allison and Richie with her Husband, Larry, Bobbie opened the Hollywood Actor’s Showcase, LLC formerly Expressions Unlimited actors workshop in Sherman Oaks, California. With an ever-changing group of talent coming through the door from new up-and-comers to soon to be famous celebrities including; Giovanni Ribisi, Stephen Dorff, Breckin Myer, Devon Aoki, Scarlett Johansson, Drew Barrymore, Taryn Manning and more, Expressions Unlimited now known as Hollywood Actor’s Showcase became a staple in Hollywood.

Over the years, leading television networks have and continue to cast Bobbie as Hollywood’s acting guru on show’s such as WB’s hit show “The Starlet” with Faye Dunaway and Vivica A. Fox, as well as “Faking It” for TLC. “Fight for Fame” on “E” Entertainment. “Family Crews” for BET, Eva Longoria’s pilot “Beso: Waiting to be Famous“, Dr. Phil’s “Decision House“,  “R & B Divas” and 2 episodes of “Keeping up with the Kardashians“. E! Entertainment has even dubbed her as, “Acting Coach to the Stars”.

Bobbie Shaw Chance mission is to expand the actor’s horizons and guide them in the right direction to become successful working professionals in a cutthroat industry. She believes that in order to achieve such results the actor must be willing to surrender oneself to the role, essentially using your body as a vessel for the role to live through and get the character off of the page organically.

“You can’t buy it. You can’t fake it. You gotta be it to become it” ~Bobbie Shaw Chance.

Throughout the years Bobbie Chance and her son, Richie Chance, have evolved the studio to incorporate many crucial facets of the business within the classes they offer. A-List celebrities, Oscar and Grammy Award winning actors and musicians, sports stars and politicians alike have traversed Hollywood Actor’s Showcase formerly Expressions Unlimited stage in search of a deeper understanding of the craft.

Mexican Actor Joey Valdez Seeks To Launch A Movie On A Channel About Immigration In San Diego

By Maria Gonzalez Amarillo from La Prensa San Diego published on August 21, 2015 & Translated by Steven Escobar from Diversity News Magazine via Google Translator on 8-30-2015.
________________________________________________________

The short film, “Tacos for lunch” comes from Chandan Gupta in order to educate the public about immigration and hopes to show both sides of the issue. Launched in 2013, the short film is 23 minutes and 45 seconds long. It stands out in the middle of the maelstrom that is causing the immigration issue.

In about a month, the creation and writer-director will premiere the film on Channel 22 in Las Vegas Century Prism and states that Joey Valdez, one of the actors in the film, “The aim is to disseminate it through a channel in San Diego before being broadcast in Las Vegas. Everything depends on the space available and given to us.”

When Christine, a single woman, decides to move, she enlists the help from some local day laborers. All seems to be going well, until she leaves to get “Tacos For Lunch”. She returns to a quiet apartment and a dead worker on her floor. The day continues to spiral out of control leading to a series of unexpected crazy twisted events.

The story begins with the removal of Christine (Therese McLauglhin), a US citizen, and her hiring of two Mexican immigrants, Emilio (Joey Valdez) and Paul (Billynaire Cruz), to help move boxes. By the time she leaves the house to grab a few tacos, a series of terrible events happen, culminating into an overwhelming outcome.

“We know we will be successful,” the actor told member of the press. “My agent is communicating with politicians such as Donald J. Trump Sr., to express their thoughts about the film.”

Valdez began his career very young: at age 3 he participated in his first play in the Smythe Elementary School in San Ysidro, California. Subsequently he became Joseph, the husband of the Virgin Mary in a Christmas play, and finally to the early age of 13 officially began studying acting with Drama teacher Enrique Nolasco from the House of Culture in Tijuana, Mexico.

He is now known to have worked for Ed Magik TV, a platform video entertainment and had done interviews with famous people where Valdez was the host of “Vayaconmigo” program, broadcast in Berea Vision 31.6 in Los Angeles, in which he worked with renowned artists such as singer Elvis Crespo.

Valdez is defined as a man “with traditional values who prefers to work hard for a living, rather than compromise his integrity and principles.”

In turn, the actor is a frequent host to celebrities in the online magazine Ke Chevere and as collaborated with singer and actress Carmen Jara on Univision for the show “Who is right” in Miami, which exposes and tries to solve family and marital conflict.

Joey Valdez has also participated in television projects in Indonesia and has worked as a presenter on the red carpet with his old friend Steven Escobar for Diversity News TV produced by Diversity News Productions whose content is broadcast via Youtube and Vimeo, DailyMotion, among other online platforms in video, and is based on entertainment events, celebrity interviews, awards, concerts, fashion and more.

Although the actor is confident everyone will enjoy “Tacos for lunch,” he hopes that the film reaches a significant audience—enough to impact the issues at hand and generate comments in the media, as well as prominent figures, fostering discussion, debate and more empathy towards immigration.

EDITORIAL: Donald J Trump YOU ARE FIRED!

Hey, Mr. Donald J. Trump made a big mistake to make a general statement on immigrants. As you may see we all united to send a message to the network’s that without us the Latinos your business could not exist.

It is very disappointing what you said but, we hope you learn to keep your mouth shut. Now you can see it very clear that you are not going nowhere with the attitude.

We applaud Univision decision for cutting all ties with your beauty pageant shows: Miss Universe and Miss USA. Now that NBCUniversal does the same they show that they care about the growing Latino/Hispanic immigrant population in the United States of America who has contributed to the better of this country.

Once again what just happened to Mr. Donald J. Trump is his fault and yes he will not make it to The White House. Donald J. Trump it is not personal it is just Business! You are Fired!

Breaking News: Same Marriage is Legal in All the States of the United States of America

On Friday, June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court, the highest court of the United States rules that Same Sex Marriage banning was unconstitutional.

CNN.com reported: In a landmark opinion, a divided Supreme Court on Friday ruled that same-sex couples can marry nationwide, establishing a new civil right and handing gay rights advocates a historic victory.

In the 5-4 ruling, Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote for the majority with the four liberal justices. Each of the four conservative justices wrote their own dissent.

Also on Wikipedia states the following: On June 26, 2015, the United States became the twenty-first and most populous country to legalize same-sex marriage, following the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges. The court ruled that the denial of marriage licenses to same-sex couples violates the Due Process and the Equal Protection clauses of the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution. The ruling overturned a previous precedent, Baker v. Nelson.
Starting in 2003, various lower court decisions, state legislation, and popular referendums had already legalized same-sex marriage to some degree in thirty-seven out of fifty U.S. states, in one U.S. territory, and in the District of Columbia. Federal benefits were previously extended to lawfully married same-sex couples following the Supreme Court’s June 2013 decision in United States v. Windsor.

On the same day celebrations were held all over the United States of America.

Michael Deluca Shot By Port Hueneme Ventura Police

Sly Stallone bodyguard & videographer producer Michael Deluca aka Duke De Luca shot by Port Hueneme Ventura Police on Friday, September 6, 2013

Per The Ventura County Star reported on September 9, 2013 the following: Two Port Hueneme police officers used a Taser on a Thousand Oaks man before fatally shooting him early Friday, officials said.

According to police, Michael De Luca, 53, was shot and killed about 4:15 a.m. in the 500 block of Surfside Drive.

“Saddened by the news of the passing of my dear friend pro boxer Golden Gloves Champion and photographer Mike Duke De Luca. Duke was a stand-up guy who was a source of inspiration to me showing how to always keep your chin up and keep up the fight for whatever struggle one deals with. RIP Duke! You were a Real Champ!!!” ~Tom Slack.

Also ABC 7 Los Angeles reports that: Port Hueneme police say former bodyguard Michael Deluca claimed he had a gun before officers fatally shot him during a confrontation last week.

I can add that on September 9, 2013 I contacted the Media Relations Officer of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office asking why he was shot and this is the response I received:

Hi Esteban,

Thanks for your email.  The Sheriff’s Office did not handle any part of the investigation.  Our Crime Lab Scientists are working on the evidence related to this case, which is protocol for law enforcement agencies throughout the County for this type of investigation.

 

Let me know if you have any other questions.

 

Thank you.

~Don Aguilar

Leaves behind his sons Michael and Vinny DeLuca.

“Mornin, All, I wake up with a clear head, and am back on my own path… If I had any advice to give, I would say, ALways be your own person… When true love bites you on the ass, or a good fulfilling line of work…you will know it… Life is nothing but moments… Live yours the way you want to, and must do as an individual. Back to the books for me, and looking at a bright future, what is, and what shall never be is my Motto, just do what You want to do… Life is short… One day your 21, before you know it, your 50! …LIVE with no regrets.. But then again…have too few to mention….” ~DUKE

I can not believe it that the police will kill this man who was no danger to them or anyone. I worked with Michael Deluca 3 years ago when him and Patrice Ryan covered Shine On 2 Hollywood at Celebrity Center in Hollywood, CA. He enjoyed covering events and editing his footage. My prayers and condolences to his family especially his sons. Michael Deluca Sr. aka Duke De Luca Rest In Peace and GOD will protect you always.

Even on my LinkedIn on May 2013 he wrote a recommendation stating: Dear Esteban,
I’ve written this recommendation of your work to share with other LinkedIn users.
Details of the Recommendation: “A Guy To know….. The Job and creative he creates shows….Nicely
~DUKE”
Service Category: Business Consultant
Year first hired: 2013 (hired more than once)
Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity

A Facebook fan page have been created title: What Really Happened To “The DUKE” at https://www.facebook.com/pages/What-Really-Happened-To-The-DUKE/1413397688876272

As the date of this article post, a Memorial Fund for Michael Deluca Sr. have been set up by Melissa Kantor asking people to help: Mike was tragically killed on Friday, September 6, 2013.  His sons need your help to aid in covering the costs of funeral arrangements and to gain information on the tragedy.

About Mike De Luca: Mike “The Duke” De Luca was a Boxer, Director/Videographer/Editor/Actor.
Mike De Luca was born in 1959 with the name Michael Maloney. William Maloney was his step-father. Michael grew up in the Bronx, New York and relocated to Long Island when he was 11 years old. He briefly attended Eastern Kentucky University to pursue a future in Law Enforcement. Mike won the New York State Golden Gloves at Madison Square Garden in 1979 as a 19 year old, 197 lb. heavyweight. He fought, and knocked out Harry Keitt (“On The Ropes”) in 42 seconds of the first round. He went on to take a silver metal in The Empire State Games the following year. He could not fight for the gold because of a broken hand. Mike drove out to California in 1981. He eventually became a Pro Boxer (managed by actor, producer Tony Danza). This was the proper opportunity for Mike to obtain his real father’s surname, De Luca. Mike was a professional bodyguard from 1984-1989. He has studied American and Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu since the early ’90s. He is currently a studio Plasterer, and Laborer in Union Locals 755, and 724.
