Casting Director Workshop with Freddy Luis

Tonight I attended a Casting Director Workshop with Freddy Luis at AIA Actors Studio. Freddy is a Casting Director at Engine Media Group, a big office casting office.   Freddy gave us great tips for auditioning.  He said that an actor should always know who is going to be in the audition room.  If the writer is going to be in the room, do not change a thing.  And always be confident with your choices.

Afterwards Freddy passed out sides from films he has cast.  I was given tough sides from a Sci-Fi Film where I played a character who was visually half a 60-year-old man and half 20-year-old woman and speaks like a 60-year-old man. This character is a manifestation of the imagination of the main character.  In this scene I was also threatening the main character. Freddy said to be confident with our choices, so  I just went for it.  Hopefully I made a good first impression!
