No job is ever safe

Yet another reason to never rest of your laurels. Even when you are talented, well liked, and on a hit TV show your job is never a guarantee. Read here about a shocking layoff on one of TV’s hottest shows. It is such a wake up call. I did a seminar with casting director David Vaccari of Telsey, and he said that no matter what level you are at, there is always some kind of struggle. First its trying to get an agent, then trying to get a better agent, then trying to get the TOP agent. Its trying to get into a great film, then its trying to get offered a great film without auditioning, then its trying to get offered a great film for more money than anyone else... and so on, and so on... It is at once mollifying and disconcerting ...

  1. Having worked in production most of my life, I feel pretty safe once I find a job BUT I have seen actors fired (some for good reasons, others not so much) so you're right, you can't rest on your laurels.


Thanks for commenting- YOU ROCK!
