Casting Directors always notice when an actor’s skill has improved. If your skill level hasn’t changed significantly then endeavour to bring something else new to the session. Demonstrate that you have a professional understanding of what a Casting Director is looking for in an actor. THE RESULT: Actors that had a new skill level (6 actors) or had a new workshop, production or play to discuss – stood out (3 actors).
‘The Rehearsal Room’ view: Keeping working in shows and in classes is both productive for you and positive information for the Casting Director.
Six actors in this group played an optimistic, charming, proactive and likeable character. THEY ALL stood out in the Casting Directors memory. THE RESULT: A very high percentage return for such simple choices.
‘The Rehearsal Room’ view: The audience will be much more interested in watching the journey of a character that they like – and Casting Directors are more likely to hire positive pro-active actors whom they like.
