Today my commercial agent, Richie, notified me of a same day commercial audition for Cathi Carlton Casting. The audition was held at 2701 Ocean Park Casting Facility in Santa Monica. Not only was it a same day audition, I needed to be in Santa Monica in an hour and a half and I was in Woodland Hills. Luckily I had my hair and make up done from an audition earlier, but I didn’t have time to choose my wardrobe, I had to go with what I was wearing, which was jeans and a blue tank. I was near a Kohls so I made a quick run to the store and picked up a dark gray cardigan for a more “mom” look.
The audition was for a young mom for a Chevrolet commercial. There was a long wait in the casting office. I looked around the room and saw that I was the only pregnant actress auditioning. That could be a good thing or a bad thing.
I auditioned with a shy 5-year-old for this commercial. I had to crouch down to her level, which was tough with my big 7 1/2 month pregnant belly. So I felt a little off on my lines. But I’m still grateful for the opportunity.
Special Thanks to Cathi Carlton for the audition!
