When did you start acting?
I started my performing life when I was 5 years old; I truly doubt if anyone who will read this is younger than 15, so not sure if my experience of getting into the business is even relevant. To add to the fact that it was in a different country in a different era; a time when you used to get your text for an audition on fax. So many times you got from the production your text smudged and it was sometimes awkward to call and ask, especially if you’re 12 years old and embarrassed, not realising that the smudge is not your fault. Also, you don’t want them to remember you as “the problematic one” – sounds familiar at any age, right? But since then I learned you SHOULD ask, in order to give your best and closest to what they (by “they” I mean casting directors and directors or anyone in the casting room. Well… When there was still an actual casting room) want. Many times I guessed or waited for the audition day to ask once I arrived – that’s how I roll – living on the edge.
