Audition Update: Good but Different

I just found out that I was not cast in “Sunday on the Rocks.” I received a very nice email from the producer, but then I also received a message from the Associate AD, who said, “What I wanted to let you know is that when you walked out of the room [the director] was like- 'Yep, just right.' You read exACTly like [she] wanted her...with the grouping, however, she paired the four ladies differently. I am sorry we aren't using you THIS time, but when the next ones roll around- I will be sure to let you know.”

If you ever wanted to know what being an actor is really like, all you have to do is read the above. Even when you are perfect for the role, and even when people really like you, you still may not be cast. It could have been because I was blonde. It could have been because I looked too much like another one of the actors. It could have been... etc etc. The best news is that I will be on their radar for other projects, and that is the very best I can hope for in this situation. I am grateful that my work is being noticed, and I know it will come back to reward me someday.

I have 5 more auditions this week- onwards and upwards!
