“Your goal when you’re auditioning is to create a consistent body of work. So it’s okay to go in and get that one job.” Jenna Fischer
A great microcosm of life. Show up and do what works for you.
“Your goal when you’re auditioning is to create a consistent body of work. So it’s okay to go in and get that one job. It’s to start planting seeds with the various casting offices and directors that you’re a Good Actor. You might not be the right Good Actor for this role, but in general you’re a good actor. Because a lot of the reasons that you get or don’t get a job are arbitrary and not related to your talent.
“The number of jobs I’ve lost because they changed the character. Or someone else was more famous than I was. You can have three great actors all reading for one role. The two people who didn’t get it, it doesn’t mean they were bad. That’s why when you go into an audition it’s okay to get a no. You’re gonna go on 49 auditions before you get the job. Not as a 1 to 1 ratio. 50 No’s to every Yes. If you call me in, I’m gonna give you a solid performance.”
Things work out the way they work out.
