Tonight I attended a Casting Director Workshop with Cathy Henderson-Martin at AIA Actors Studio.
Cathy is such a doll. She is funny and down to earth. Cathy is working on a 5 picture deal right now and still took the time to teach at AIA. Amazing. She said that she has been casting for 35 years and has a reputation for finding new talent.
Cathy passed out sides from various films. I was given sides from a movie called “Monster in Law”. I never saw this film, but I know it is a comedy. In the scene my character, Charlotte, has met her menacing mother-in-law for brunch. It was a treat to work on and I got a few laughs (applying those tips from Nick Anderson’s “Rules of Comedy” class).
What a great evening. Thanks Cathy for teaching at AIA!
