HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to "gossip." In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members who are getting acting and performance gigs. The names of HOLA members are in boldface.

Jeffrey Hernández, shown at left, booked a role on the film short Todo Bien (directed by Eunsun Koh) after the director saw his profile on the HOLA talent directory and called him in to audition.

Miniño will play Diggory in MTWorks' workshop of On Egdon Heath, a new adaptation by David Stallings of Thomas Hardy's novel The Return of the Native. Directed by Glory Kadigan, it will take place in February at the City College of New York in Manhattan's Harlem neighborhood as part of the 2012 National NewBorn Festival.
