I got a last minute audition for the daughter of a deceased dead beat dad and the sides were all voice over. I read them over a few times but was unsure how to go about it since all the acting in the scene was going to be shot seperate from my audition.
When I got to the audition they were running 45 minutes behind. In addition to that I decided to memorize my lines for the scene after all. I went through it a few times while I waited and finalized my mood and how I felt about the situation.
As it closed in on my turn the casting director handed me new sides!! Gasp! I have never memorized in the waiting room cold before. I didn't know the protocol for how to present them, do I read them? So I just memorized them. Yup. I had just done it with the other page so I broke this one down and dos the same. I was not perfectly word for word but because I knew them I felt more connected when I gave my voice over.
Min the grand scheme of things who knows if I will book this role. There were a lot of ladies who looked a lot like me that could be the daughter I was auditioning for. But, because I got to audition for this part I got a new skill and gained more confidence. This is one Saturday that was well spent.
Time to get my inner queen on for my second vengeance filled audition.
