My first Ms. in the Biz article of the new year is live! Check out the excerpt below, and click the read more link to finish the article!
I was doing my daily casting submissions in the last days of 2015, and one breakdown caught my eye. It was one of those paragraph-long descriptions (which are never really necessary from a casting perspective, are they?)
The line that stopped me in my tracks was this:
“…attractive but she’s that classic actress type who would be so much hotter if her mouth was always duct-taped.”
Let’s move past that fact that I never, not in a million years, would submit to this casting. God knows where the audition would be, and what might go on during it. Think I’m being dramatic? Ask nearly any actress about her “worst” audition experience and I’ll bet you good money that it won’t be about forgetting her lines or feeling iffy about her choices. It’ll be about getting harassed or feeling scared.
