Today is my late
mother’s birthday.I lost her 12
years ago to pancreatic cancer and miss her everyday.Ironically, I sort of lost my father around the same time.He’s still living, but I stopped
reaching out to him back in 2003 and seriously doubt he would reach out to
me.There is a very good chance
that I’ve already spoken to him for the last time.Sucks.I guess
somebody has to be the black sheep in the family.
Minds” @ Scott David Casting.Just
a short 3 weeks ago I had one of my worst auditions ever.It was so bad that it made me question
whether I should be an actor at all…it was not a good day.
I probably wasn’t as bad as I thought I was, but still, I sucked.I also think that casting directors
know that, sometimes, actors have bad days.Fortunately, this time, things in the room went much, much
Minds” @ Scott David Casting.This
was a nice little scene and the part was perfect for me.I rehearsed and went through the
material back and forth…and got completely tongue-tied in the room.Like completely.
Callback: “The Odd
couple” @ Greenstein/Daniel Casting.Can I tell you that I was completely shocked that I got a callback for
this? I mean, the pre-read wasn’t
absolutely horrible, but I didn’t think I was moving on to the next stage.This office has hired me in the past
and, hopefully, they will again in the future.Oh yeah, I was happy with my performance in the room!One of the CD’s, Brett, asked me what
it was like to not be working overnights anymore.He remembered, almost a year ago, when I told him I was
going to be leaving the night job.It was nice of him to ask.
@ Ross Lacy Casting. Can’t say
anything about this one other than it went very well I thought.
“Silk” @ Ross Lacy Casting.This
didn’t go bad at all, but I felt like I was pushing a little too much in the
“Living Room Coffin” @ Lisa Zambetti/Emily Schweber Casting. I don’t know how
right I was for this character, but I was I was really happy with my
performance in the room.I
actually felt their attention shift in the room.They paid attention to my interpretation of the
character.Lisa is also the
associate on “Criminal Minds” so hopefully this audition will help me continue
to get called in for that show as well.
Audition: “The Odd
Couple” @ Greenstein/Daniel Casting.This was a pre-read for a same day callback at CBS Radford.I felt okay when I left the room. I
just thought it took me too long to get where the casting director needed me to
be.But he must have thought I was
right for it since he invested his time in me.
audition info clearly stated that callbacks would be held in the afternoon, but
the CD said that he wasn’t sure when they would be.Things change all the time…or was he just be polite.Hmm…Honestly, I was still kicking myself when I got to my car.
One of my long-time
commercial agents, Brooke, is retiring from the biz. My new agent who will be taking her place, Valerie Chiovetti,
called to see if I had a moment to stop by for a meeting. Of course I did. What a great lady! I’m really excited to be moving forward
with her. I’ve had nothing but
great experiences at that agency and I expect it to continue…I just want to
book more jobs for them. http://www.stephonfuller.com
Rewards Club” @ TLC/Booth Casting.It’s usually an interesting experience in the room at this casting office
and this venture in did not disappoint.I had a great time with the other actress I worked with.It’s a Joe Pytka-directed industrial.I’ve worked with him 3-times in the
past and I’d love to make this the 4th!
I responded to a posting
on Twitter for a last minute request for someone to be a reader for a short
film.I had been wanting to start
being a reader again so I responded, but I didn’t get a response.
figured I would just drive to the office an offer to help…if they needed me and
that’s just how it played out.It
was a little awkward at first since I had no idea what I was reading, but after
getting more info of what was happening in the scenes I was able to settle in.
Miller’s” @ Dava Waite Casting.I
left feeling very good about my performance in the room on this one.And the lead actress on the show waved
to me as she passed by in her car on the lot.Maybe that’s a good sign…or she’s just a really nice lady.Who knows, but I’m glad CD Dava Waite
knows who I am and still calls me in for auditions.
@ Ross Lacy.Hmm…Lettuce?Anyway, I had a lot of fun in the room
with the other actors.
the first in many, many years I went to a…gentleman’s club.There were many scantily-clad women
there.They had stripped down to
very little clothing…if any at all.Interesting.Not really my
scene…I ain’t judging though.
Well, my agent got
the news, and yes, “Verizon” is renewing the commercial for another cycle which
means I’m out of the running for the “Samsung” spot.That’s cool, at least I can expect a check in the mail…and
who knows, maybe the “Verizon” spot will start airing again.It was a slip up from my agency, but
I’m glad it happened like that.It’s always good to get a callback and I like having my name float
through the office for a progressive reason.
So, the deal is
this…I got a callback for “Samsung”
conflicts with my “Verizon” spot of which the holding period ends today. The spot hasn’t aired since very early
in the year so I’ll see if my agent can find out if I’m going to be held for
another holding period. http://www.stephonfuller.com
Audition: “Alive” @
Craig Colvin Casting.I left
feeling great about this one.I’ve
been trying to book at this casting office for so long it’s not even funny
anymore.I’ve had numerous
callbacks and avails, but the bookings haven’t happened…yet.
