Audition: “Staples” @ Ross Lacy Casting. It goes well.
This afternoon I was back in the saddle as a reader for Natasha Cuba/Kelly Wagner @ Nancy Nayor Casting. This ended up being a kind of a long session even though we didn’t see that many actors. The director, Paddy Breathnach, was spending A LOT of time with everyone. It was great to see such patience and also interesting to see people take direction – or not. This was the last session before Paddy goes back to Dublin.
I’ll say it again – it’s so insightful being a reader. It’s amazing to see these young actors come in that have so much going on – even though you have probably never heard of them. Some of them will blow up in the coming years. I witnessed one actress given the pros of doing the project even though it would totally take her out of her first pilot season here in LA.
