What if I want to audition for something not designed for me?

If the Description Doesn't Fit...

Art imitates life. Pretty much every type of human being is or can be portrayed on screen or on stage. That means there are a lot of jobs out there that will be perfect for you. However you need to know your "type," and this is one of many very important acting tips. Spend some time with your agent, manager, or teacher to objectively pin-point your strengths, both physically and in terms of your craft. Stick to auditions that best showcase you. If on occasion you find an audition that doesn't seem to match your type, but you still feel strongly that you could carry the role, speak with your agent about getting an audition anyway. It never hurts to be seen.
