So how did Alexandrea Owens-Sarno, an aspiring actress with limited experience, go from extra to starring in “Titanic”? Obviously, everything fell into place after her little sister got upset during the open audition. As Owens-Sarnow told Vice, when her younger brother started crying during the casting call, the family caught the attention of the casting director. At that time, the casting director saw Owens-Sarno and thought she might be perfect for the role of Cora. “I think it was probably just my giant eyes, honestly,” she told the publication. “I have these big eyes that people say, ‘Oh my God, they’re so emotional.’ I can’t really hide things.
While one would assume that getting started in a record-breaking film like “Titanic” would pave the way for an easy career in Hollywood, that wasn’t entirely the case for Owens-Sarno. “Well, right after ‘Titanic,’ I found an agent,” she told Cosmopolitan. “I was auditioning for movies, but it was a very difficult time for me.” Along with facing massive public attention at a very young age, Owens-Sarno also faced a lot of rejection. “I actually stopped pursuing the professional side of acting — but I live in LA now, doing the LA thing,” she shared.
