Secondly, while at the casting office, keep your focus on why you're there. Networking is important and catching up with old friends is fun, but NOT before you go in that room! At the same audition, a long-time friend of mine came in, signed the sign-in sheet, and was ready to chit-chat for a few minutes. But she had no way of knowing that I was next to go in, and I needed to go in focused and on point. Not to mention the fact that the waiting room was full and the other actors there were quietly doing their prep work as well. Not a good time to disturb the groove. And if you do, people will always assume you don't really know what you're doing!
Thirdly, I was quite disillusioned to find out the studio grass there that I always imagined them maintaining so meticulously was actually just astro turf. Well, damn... just thought I'd share that one!
Love you guys; until next time...
