Auditioning is a challenging process for most actors. But it should also be enjoyable. Before he became a movie star, Al Pacino would say to friends who asked what he did that day: “I got a chance to act, I auditioned.”
Most successful actors have a positive self-talk about auditioning and a focus on the work rather than the results. You can’t give yourself the job, but you can control many of the circumstances of the audition.
It starts with preparation, including a set of triggers that will excite you and generate the best results. Because the waiting area is often busy and distracting, having a routine to focus on the task and the material will go a long way to helping you give the very best audition.
