It’s tough out there! Here at Blush Central we want to see you succeed so we’re providing you with the tops and tricks all newbie actors should be familiar with to make sure you get that role!
Accept the invitation with enthusiasm and be nice. Think of every moment as an opportunity and learning experience. Even it it’s not your dream role think of what you can learn and the how you can better increase your network from it.
STAY confident. Don’t lose your brave face after the audition, continue the enthusiasm and confidence you had in your audition for the entire time. Being shy is like shutting the front door in your face and part of being an actor is having to get out of your comfort zone.
Make no excuses. Don’t keep making excuses why you were ill prepared or didn’t check your emails. Take responsibility for your actions. The casting directors don’t want to hear your excuses, they want to see you work. Let your talent shine through.
Do you have any questions? This usually means are you ready? Don't ask questions unless it is really vital. The casting directors don't want you to have any questions.
Get to know the role and understand whom you are meant to play and act out. Always do your research on the character and any other background research that will help you excel at the role such as about the director, other actors, or the play/movie itself.
Know who you are, what you want to do and how you will do it. Be open to learning and discovering new things. Being self-confident is a crucial key to helping you succeed in your career path.
Don’t mime or busy yourself with props, activities or blocking. Keep it simple. Don’t be distracted or do things just for the sake of doing them. Acting is about portraying life, so do just that!
Don’t expect to be directed or told what to do all the time. But if you are being directed - follow it!
Always let your voice be heard. Make it unique and be yourself. This will help show your passion and love for the role.
Brush up on some acting classes. It is always good to learn new things and surround yourself with others who are passionate about the same thing because this will allow you to grow and develop your skills. It will also give you the criticism and opinion that you need to work on your weakness. If you cannot pay for acting classes, find an acting studio and ask if you can volunteer in their office while you watch their classes. It's also not a bad idea to go over the very basics every once in a while, you'd be surprised how many people forget about them.
