Casting Call Tips

When you're invited to a casting call, remember to bring along your headshot and resume. The casting director will likely have a copy of your headshot and resume on hand, but it's always good to have an extra copy just in case.

You should also be prepared to read from the script or sides (the portion of the script that pertains to your audition). If you're asked to do a cold reading, which means reading from the script without any prior rehearsal, take a deep breath and give it your best shot.

Casting calls can be nerve-wracking, but try to relax and have fun with it. The casting director wants to see you at your best, so just be yourself and let your personality shine through.
