Even if you are relatively certain that you did not get any part at all, this can be a great way to get invited back for other reads.
Courtesy goes further than people think in the entertainment industry.
Even professionals that have been previously cast can easily benefit from this valuable advice.
First of all, stay calm and don’t become intimidated – it may be easier said than done, but believe in yourself and your talents.
If you have a chance to get familiar with the material before your casting call then by all means do so.
During the read you want to be able to process what you are taking in quickly enough to deliver it in a fashion that is both natural and appealing. Often what the performer feels as border-lining on over the top is quite mundane and monotone to the audience.
Over three quarters of the expression that you will be delivering is lost when you are viewed by the casting agent (or by any audience for that matter.) Always be polite and thank the casting team.
When intimidated, most people make mistakes that they can’t recover from.
The most important thing to remember about making a mistake is to recover from it and keep going as if nothing has happened, this is how true professionals do things.
