“ Geno's wish introduces him to life in the limelight ”

Lights, camera, action! Wish Kid Geno Lockwood was ready for his cameo in “Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2” as a movie extra. GenoWanting to pursue a career in acting and modeling, Geno’s wish to be a movie extra was a great introduction into life in the limelight!

As he stepped out of his limousine with his family by his side, they were all in for a long day of super-star treatment! Before going on set, Geno experienced the life of an actor in his own trailer set. There, he would become camera-ready after he was styled by a makeup artist. After being pampered, front row production seats were reserved where the entire family watched filming on set, and even scenes in front of a green screen! When it came time for Geno’s scene, the rest of his family was able to participate, as well.

Afterwards, Geno met with celebrity actors from the movie and discussed his future goals! His mother wrote that his wish experience helped him “gain more confidence in pursuing his acting and modeling career.” Almost a year later when the movie came out, a premier event was held where Geno could once again feel like a superstar as he handed out autographs to his fans and supporters. Thank you for making dreams a reality for kids like Geno!
