I love auditioning. Since 'The Notebook' and 'Wedding Crashers ' I don't have to audition anymore and I miss it. You get to show your interpretation of the character. I get nervous when I don't audition. What if they hate what I want to do?
I played teen roles until high definition came out and I could never understand it. I would go in for adult roles and be older than many of the people auditioning but they'd cast the girl without a line on her face.
I was 20 years old working as a roofer and a telemarketer and driving a taxi just barely getting by. A friend of a friend suggested I try acting. I was like 'Why? What am I going to do? Community theater?' But I took a class and the teacher thought that I had potential so I moved to Vancouver and started auditioning.
I always always meant to be on stage. I only ended up even auditioning for television and movies because I was understudying a Turgenev play on Broadway and was so broke that when I got a mini-series I had to take it and was so ashamed because I was such a snob.
When I was six years old my friend was auditioning for 'Annie ' and I decided I wanted to audition with her. My mom was worried I would fall flat on my face because I'd never opened my mouth to sing so she sent me to vocal lessons. I did the audition and fell in love with the entire process of a show.
Every time you have to speak you are auditioning for leadership.
What's monotonous about being an actor and often makes me want to throw in the towel or drive a car off a bridge is the auditioning - the waiting around.
I know as an actor there is a certain liberation auditioning for a role that has no beauty requirements.
I am auditioning again - getting back to theatre would be amazing.
I started auditioning when I was about 10 and I didn't get my first job until I was 12 and two years at that age is really hard.
