"It's one of the coolest things I ever done."

Show business careers can start just about anywhere. For Portage's Sydney Gilmour, it has begun, as she was selected to star in a couple of TV commercials for her employer, Chipotle Mexican Grill, in Portage.

Gilmour, who is from Portage and a Portage Northern graduate, entered an in-house competition, where she was required to send in a video, to be in the commercial. She was flown out to California in October of last year, and the two commercials were filmed in a new Chipotle Mexican Grill store that was about to open.

The second commercial features only Gilmour's voice over the stirring of guacamole.

Gilmour says she always wanted to be a performer. She said just today she was recognized at the Chipotle store in Portage.
