Actors and models love to be paid for their work, and that first check is something they remember for the rest of their lives. Most of the time, it’s a small amount. My first check was for $28 and I loved it. But Corrine Brown of Saratoga Springs’s first check was a doozy–$1062.50–for a four day promo booking at Americade/Lake George. Her partner of the job, Brittany Drahos of Queensbury was her booking partner and she received the same amount, but Britt’s an old hand at this. That’s Corrine, showing off her check.
