Here is a glimpse into my day as an actor. I woke up exhausted from my long work day the day before. Was up at 4 am for a 5:30 am call time. Then I was on my feet for a good chunk of the day. After being there for 11 hours I was released. Today I felt the ache in my feet and the fatigue in my face. Nevertheless, I had a hair audition for a commercial today where I was contacted to come in. The advertising agency found me on LA Casting and had me come in for the salon to check out my curl. I put on my black tank and black skinny jeans and put on minimal makeup and was on my way. Auditions take me minimum 45 minutes to get to, and up to an hour. While I was driving to my hair audition I got a c-mail from actors access for a student film auditioning tomorrow at noon. It has 4 pages of dialogue to be prepared in less than 24 hours. The total time of my day spent out for just this audition was 2.5 hours. Gotta love traffic.
On top of that I saw a casting on Backstage for a news anchor where they requested actors read the monologue on camera and then send it via youtube. Since I like to hustle and get as much done as I can in a day I prepared, read, recorded, edited, uploaded, and submitted my audition video after I got home from my hair audition.
You can check it out above!! Up next is 45 minutes of cardio and reading over the student film script in its whole before memorizing the sides. Post cardio I'm heading to a family dinner in downtown Disney to spend time with loved ones. While sitting in traffic I will be preparing my lines. After my lovely audition tomorrow I have more lines to prepare with a Southern Accent for another feature film audition on Friday. That will be even more fun since I have yet to receive the sides...
As Scar said in Lion King, BE PREPARED!!
