A lot of us as actors, we don’t know our own self-worth. When we walk into an audition room, we may have planned what we are going to do, but when we see the casting director and the camera facing our way, for some reason, out of fear, we begin making different choices.
Choices that we think, the casting director wants us to do. But how can we know what is inside their heads? We don’t. So stop! Stop allowing fear to take over the spotlight in that room.
Instead, take control. Look at the camera, look at the casting director, and look at the entire room.
And in your head say to yourself “You have no control over me!” Because they really don’t. The only thing that you don’t have control over, is the final decision. That is completely out of your control.
