As any working actor can tell you, the audition room is nothing like what we do on set. While it employs many of the same skills required to deliver truthful performances under imaginary circumstances, there are countless ways in which it differs. And in order to be truly successful in this career an actor must know how to deliver authentic performances, take direction, and prepare in a more efficient fashion with different technical aspects.


While there aren’t hard fast dos and don’ts for all audition rooms as each individual casting director will have their own style and preferences, there are some consistent pillars we can incorporate to ensure we create the impression we want associated with our brand on a regular basis.

BE PREPARED. You will rarely get more than 24-48 hours to prepare an audition. Make sure you have enough training to properly deliver an authentic performance.


BE EFFICIENT. You will have only a few minutes to deliver your performance. You need to come in with confident choices. You need to be able to deliver connected and authentic emotional responses without taking several minutes off the top to “get into character”. You need to understand the scene, the relationships, the character, and most importantly the story well enough to apply changes quickly.

BE RESPECTFUL. Be on time. Be real. Be prepared. Be appropriate. This is a workplace and all workplace rules apply. Always be a positive reflection of you, your agent, and the casting director.

BE DIRECTABLE. This doesn’t mean just agreeing with a direction. You must not only understand it. But be able to apply it. You also need to ensure you understand what the specific note or direction is and you don’t simply guess what the Director or Casting Director is asking you to do.
