She is a court reporter -- AND she plays one on TV: 'House of Cards' to be specific

What do you do when you’re not working as a court reporter?

Cindy Sebo, a freelance reporter from Bowie, Maryland, who works with us at Huseby, spends her out-of-work time pretending to be a court reporter.

She recently filmed a scene as a court reporter in the U.S. House of a Representatives on Neflix’s “House of Cards.” She’s transcribing Frank Underwood’s (Kevin Spacey) State of the Union speech. The agency that cast her was interested in her experience working at the real U.S. House of Representatives.

When Spacey got to the set, Sebo said, “We did the first take, and he was spot-on perfection. I was thinking, ‘Wow, we are already done in one take?’ Boy, that goes to show you how little I knew about filming. We ended up doing about 35 takes.”

Better call Jennifer: Albuquerque court reporter brings realism to 'Better Call Saul'

Jennifer Bean, an veteran Albuquerque, New Mexico court reporter, helped open the recent premiere of AMC-TV’s “Better Call Saul,” portraying -- what else -- a court reporter.

Bean owns the New Mexico court reporting firm Bean and Associates. She is a good partner of Huseby’s and has been a New Mexico certified court reporter since 1977.

She talked to the Albuquerque Journal about her experience working on the AMC show.

“I wanted to do the role so people could see that a court reporter is ethical and professional. The message is court reporters are not dinosaurs. We are invaluable to the legal system. Any lawyer worth his salt will tell you that.”

“Better Call Saul” is a prequel to the popular and award-winning “Breaking Bad,” which was also set in Albuquerque.

And while she took her role seriously, she also had her share of fun on the set. Read the in-depth story here. In it she talks about meeting the people behind the show, as well as why there’s a Big Gulp cup sitting next to her in the scene.
