Well, that was fast. Yesterday as I was leaving my boxing class, I heard my cell ringing. It was the casting office for the onion. What I auditioned for earlier in the day had been pushed up to tomorrow and I was being offered the role. I took it in a heartbeat of course!
Within an hour I had a finalized script emailed to me in addition to two alternate lines. I also received my call time, I was to get in a 6:15am van at 14th and Broadway the very next morning. Mrs. PhillyRay and I went out for a bite to eat to celebrate.
I felt joyous, at peace and relaxed. It felt totally calm. I felt like I did on my wedding day. Everything was falling into place, if only for a little bit. It felt great. I barely slept at all last night I was so excited. Today was pure adrenaline and the shooting itself took about 2-3 minutes. We filmed in Long Island, and it was supposed to be Cleveland. I arrived around 7am, had breakfast at the truck, went on a van back to holding, filled out 4 identical contracts, had wardrobe check me and sat until it was time to go. Go-time was around 12 noon.
I will recap more for everyone tomorrow, as I have to memorize an audition piece that I'm gonna use on Thursday.
Tomorrow's recap: a must-join AFTRA saga and learning to take a little sour with your sweet.
