This is by far one of the best first-person accounts by a never-in who was lured in, pressured to join but got out safely! I give her and her friend lots of credit. I suspect there are hundreds or more of such experiences not made into youtube videos for fear of being identified. Hollywood is such a difficult place to work and make your mark.
It's very sad how Scientology preys on those with dreams of a steady career in Hollywood. I spent a number of years at the Celebrity Center there where this incident happened. It was different then, late 70's to mid 80s. There were no audition or shows to lure people in. We couldn't even get Sunday Services going because everyone knew it was a hoax. People came in by word of mouth, which was bad enough. But to see that things have evolved into such deceptive and desperate attempts does not surprise me.
Gabrielle the Guru has done a wonderful thing in sharing what happened. Stating it the way it happened and without embellishment or hostility. Scientology and it's desperate tactics.... you can't make this stuff up
This is a video to be shared. It scares me to think of others getting sucked in.
