It’s Monday, and I’m already tired. Last week was one of the busiest I’ve ever had. I had two auditions, two days of filming plus a table read, and a ton of schoolwork, including a big math test.
I can’t talk about the two auditions or the theatrical film I was in last week, except to say that I had fun with all of them. One of the kids who was in this film with me was also in the last movie I worked on — that time both of us played bullies, which is kind of funny because he’s even shorter than I am. But this time, he played the kid being bullied, and I was a bully again.
I don’t really like being a bully, but I’ve been bullied, so I know how they act. I guess that’s why I’ve been cast as a bully several times now. I’m still just 5’3″ tall, but I know how to look intimidating because I’ve learned from real bullies.
I like comedy better, I think. One of the auditions I did was really funny. Cathryn Hartt taped it for me — usually Nancy Chartier or Todd Jenkins do my audition tapes, but both of them were out of town this weekend. So Cathryn worked me in at the last minute. I had a ball taping it — she is so funny, and I walked out of the audition thinking that it might be the best comedy audition I’ve ever done. Fingers crossed!
You never know what a casting director will like, but at least I had fun taping it! Here’s a picture, a screen capture from the audition tape. I know, I look silly, but that’s the point of comedy, sometimes.
I was on set a lot over the last two weeks, so I am behind on schoolwork. The rest of this week will be filled with that. Then, on Saturday, we’ll finish my part of the filming for the movie we started last weekend.
