Today my commercial agent, Randi, called me with an audition for Lisa Pantone at The Casting Lounge. Usually I get a day’s notice, but this audition was scheduled for TODAY between 2-5 PM! I was thrilled to get the call with an audition, no matter the time frame, and was able to leave work a little early so that I could get down to The Casting Lounge on South LaBrea.
The audition was for a young mom in a Walmart spot. Randi told me they were actually looking for women 30-40, so she told me to “age it up” since I’m in my 20’s. I arrived at the audition dressed in my cardigan and khakis with my hair pulled back (I usually look older with my hair pulled back).
There was a long line of women in the casting office when I arrived, but I was happy to wait for my turn at a national spot. This was my second time auditioning for Lisa Pantone and I just think she is fantastic. Lisa is right there in the room for the audition and gives direction on what the client is looking for. Not only did I feel great about my audition, but Lisa told me I gave a really nice read.
