Some days, instead of a professional model or actress, I feel like I’m more of a professional auditioner. Audition, open call, audition, audition. One day I’m a yoga instructor, another day I’m dragging my pet bunnies in a cage for a Petsmart commercial.
A few weeks ago, I did a high kick during my audition because I was so over going to auditions. For the record, it wasn’t completely out of context. I was dancing during my audition and well, just decided, this is how freaking happy I am about this audition. And no, I didn’t get the part, but it was a good high-kick.
The reality of being in this industry is that you go to a lot of auditions and book only a few. Direct books are few and far between but when they do happen, they are fantastic! And sometimes, you have to go back after you do a good audition for a callback so it takes a lot of work to be a working actor and model in the industry.
Anyway, just thought I’d share a glimpse of real truth that it’s not all glamorous and just like any job, you get no’s. Only these no’s have to do with your height, weight, face, hair, and acting abilities – or maybe even high kick abilities ;)
But guess what I did get to do a few weeks ago … I’m on Kokoon’s front page of their website!
