Know Your Type

Actors,

You are far more likely to have consistent work if you know your type and audition accordingly.

This notion that if we audition for everything and keep ourselves in front of directors as often as possible is an old way of thinking and doesn’t work in the real world of casting.

Know your type. Know what you are good at. Know your strengths as an actor and audition to those things.

You’ll soon gain a reputation as an actor that is consistent and smart.

How do you know what your type is?

Ask.

But, be honest with yourself first, and be prepared for the answer.

The type you wish to be and the type you are rarely interact with each other.

Ask your friends and colleagues what roles they think you would be good for. Ask directors, (outside and away from the audition room and no where near a rehearsal process) what roles in which they would cast you.

Learn and know your type.
