“This is a terrific guide for young actors… I read it cover to cover and then went out and bought copies for all my kids because, truthfully, it puts an experienced eye on pretty much all of life’s early encounters.”
– Donald Sutherland
“When I was about to go into my callback with Sacha Baron Cohen, Nancy told me, ‘Just enjoy the experience; you have nothing to lose,’ and she speaks a lot about that in this book. She takes the worry out of auditioning and helps us see the fun and positive side of the experience. Nancy is a true champion for diversity and I am so grateful she has opened the doors for Eastern European artists.”
– Maria Bakalova
Since the first edition was published in 2009, this practical workbook has helped countless actors learn the craft of auditioning for screen. Owing to the seismic changes within the industry following on from the #MeToo movement and, of course, the impact of social media and ever-advancing technology, how auditioning and casting are conducted has radically changed.
This third edition of Auditioning for Film and Television addresses these issues and how they come into play in the audition room, offering guidance on areas such as:
– How actors can most professionally conduct themselves in a casting situation, and on set, when there is sexuality inherent in a role
– How both interviewers and interviewees can keep the relationship clear, professional and above board
– What resources are available if issues arise
In addition, readers continue to benefit from the author’s tried-and-tested advice that will help them to succeed in this crowded and competitive industry.
