Helping out

July 26th, 2011 ~ 11:43 pm

This evening I helped out some friends who needed a reader for an audition.  It was from a show I’d seen them perform, so I was familiar with it.  I got to channel the actress impersonating a musician.  It was pretty fun.

I like to do that sort of thing every so often to remind myself that no matter how good you are, you might not get a role.  They didn’t bring in a ton of dudes, but each one was unique and good.  They were all referred by trusted people, so it was more like a call back in terms of quality.

But even being good didn’t guarantee that they were right for the role.  And it’s a bummer, but that’s how it is.  I think there was one guy who we all really loved, but wasn’t really right for the character.  Thems the brakes.

So I just have to tell myself that when I don’t get something:  I might be good, but I might not be that character for them.
