Oh what a day! I had two commercial auditions today. The life of an actress at it’s best!
First stop was Broad-Cast at 9 AM. Getting out of the house in the morning is so tough now that I’m a mom. I’m sure that once I am no longer nursing, it will be a lot easier. Right now, baby girl calls the shots. But thanks to my helpful hubby, I was able to hand her off to him and get ready for the audition. Traffic was heavy on the 101, but I made it in the nick of time.
The audition was for Target. It was a short, non dialogue spot. I greeted casting associate, Hunter, who I often see at Broad-Cast and was in and out of the audition room.
Second stop was Julia Kim Casting at 4 PM. This was my first time auditioning for Julia Kim, and I love auditioning for new casting directors. This audition was for Aquafresh Toothpaste. There was a bit of a wait when I arrived. I read over the audition info and signed in. I noticed that waiting room was filled with actresses in the late 20’s – early 30’s range, as well as actresses in the 14 -16 year old range. And between you and me, any passing thought that I might have had that I could play a high school student (Hello “Glee”) has officially been put to rest. I am just too tall to start with, and standing next to one of those teens in the restroom, I really did look like a woman in my late 20’s – early 30’s. Though how old am I? I will never tell. I joke that I am 25 as long as I’m an actress. Or at the least an age range, 25-30.
I was at the audition for almost an hour, and then if was my turn. This spot was also non-dialogue and the audition was a quick one.
Overall I was very happy with both auditions. Special thanks to Casting Directors Dan Cowan and Julia Kim for the opportunity to audition!
