February 16, 2007, Newsletter Issue #52: Empathizing With Casting Directors

Tip of the Week

Try and think of casting calls from the point of view of the casting director. They are under tremendous pressure to put together a winning cast -- a group of actors who are not only skilled but also have an attractive chemistry when placed together. The casting director has to work quickly, but she or he also has to make excellent decisions. If they make a mistake in casting, it could cost them their career. A casting director usually has a preferred list of actors that she or he wants to work with, so make sure that your agent gets you as close to this “A List” as possible.
