Mackenzie's 50 for 50
Actress and Musician
In 2009 Tinsel finally made it to Los Angeles where she would audition for the role of a lifetime. Casting director Rene Haynes would bring Korey in to audition for the part of Emily in the movie 'New Moon'. After weeks of auditioning approx. 800 girls, Summit Entertainment announced that Miss Korey would be the one to bring the beautifully scarred character to life on screen.
Off-screen Tinsel also enjoys painting, and working with youth. She travels all throughout North America teaching acting and music to Native American Youth who want to get into the entertainment industry. The course focuses on the art aspect, helping them bring out their own unique talents.
This is the first piece of evidence that comes from an institution rather than individuals. As such, it instantly adds credibility to the anti-Korey arguments. Why would Mackenzie lie about someone it presumably has official records on? Korey's "friends" may be jealous of her success, but the school has no reason to lie about her ancestry.
Indeed, the school has every reason to tell the truth. If it was caught falsifying Korey's background, it undoubtedly would face repercussions. So it's likely Mackenzie's info is accurate.
