I walk into the audition room and am invited to sit across the desk from the casting director.  They look me up and down, lean in and out. “Ooooooooooooo.  You’re interesting.  You look like you could have just come straight out of Middle Earth.”

Stopwatch 4

12:00 – I plan my escape.  I’m at work on a sunny afternoon.

Two days before I submit to a casting call.  The next day they reply with the offer of an audition.  The casting session is the following day from 12-2.  I have to work, but it just so happens that my lunch break is from 12:15-1.  Perfect!  Time is tight, and the location is several major blocks away, but I love a good challenge.  I decide to go for it.

My morning walk down into the studio district for an audition.  What a beautiful day!

I wish I could tell you all more about the auditions I get sent on.  Sadly, though necessarily, I’ve been sworn to silence on most of it.  You see, everything in this business is confidential.  I’m not allowed to share any details of the scripts I read.  I can’t give the names of any of the companies I’m auditioning for.  My agent doesn’t even like me to say what kind of audition I’m going for on a given day (fast food, financial services product, tv role, etc.).

If you’ve been following along, you know that a couple of weeks ago, while trying out for a role, I was told that I was too fat.  I found this funny.  (While not exactly a stick, I am pretty slim.)  I later started to feel almost angry about this.  A few days later, I decided I’d show them just how phat I really am.  I did something I haven’t done in a while.  I applied for a bunch of modelling gigs.  And would you know it?  I booked three of them!  THREE.  So all I have to say now is: “Thanks for the lemons, Jerk!”  My modelling career has never been hotter!  😉

Don’t worry folks.  Before you think that I’m curled up in my Spanx crying into my Ben & Jerry’s Bacon Cheeseburger ice cream researching Gastric Bypass, rest assured; I’m not.  My shape-wear is tucked away securely in my underwear drawer, there’s no such thing as Bacon Cheeseburger ice cream (yet.  Ben, Jerry, call me.  The first one’s free.), and I’ll be damned if I’m going to let anyone make me think that I’m fat.  What DID I do?  I laughed.  I laughed, and I laughed, and I laughed.  Then I shook my head.

I saw that commercial again today.  You know, that one.  That one that should be mine.  That one I should have been in. That one I was so close to booking.  The one I was called back for and fit so perfectly.  The one that was a union gig and would have made me some healthy cash.  The one that aired eighteen thousand times a day last fall.  The one that would have paid for my Christmas trip home, presents for loved ones, and still left a sizable chunk for my student loans.  The one that would have made me feel so validated.  The one that got away.

It’s back.

It’s on again.  Eighteen thousand times a day.  I’m not in it.  I’m jealous.  But I’m not angry.  I’m hungry.  I want it.  I want MY one.  I’m ready for my one.  I need my one.  This year my one comes!  That’s it.  I’ve decided.  It’s that simple, right?

Whew!  It’s been a while!  So my last post told you that I was going for a couple of commercial auditions.  Well, I am happy to report that I GOT ONE!  I BOOKED MY FIRST COMMERCIAL!!  Super exciting!  I’ll tell you more about that experience in a later post.  I’ve also been in three more short films, another television episode, and my second speaking role in a feature film.  Money is still pretty tight, so I haven’t been able to take anymore acting classes, but I’m hoping to remedy that with doing more script supervision on the side.  I’ve taken a refresher class and an advanced script supervision course in the last few months, and I’m proud to say that I’m working as an SS on a great web series, and also just finished my first paid SS gig on a feature film!  Awesome!  Hopefully that will help supplement my income and get me back in the acting class game.  I don’t like to let my resume get stale.  Always working, always training.  That’s what makes me feel like I’m putting my best out there.
