I had an audition tonight which seemed to go well. Bryan Cranston’s words were on repeat in my brain.
Steve Buscemi makes everything better.
News: Comcast Xfinity “Customer Service” Commercial
This is a regional spot I’m in (:13). Finally found it!
Listen, kid. You should not be an actress. You are not pretty enough. You should go back to wherever you came from and you should go to school. You don’t have it.
I wanted to write this to tell other women that the decision to have a mastectomy was not easy. But it is one I am very happy that I made. My chances of developing breast cancer have dropped from 87 percent to under 5 percent. I can tell my children that they don’t need to fear they will lose me to breast cancer.
On a personal note, I do not feel any less of a woman. I feel empowered that I made a strong choice that in no way diminishes my femininity.
Other actors have said she was always super nice. Even when they’re told not to talk to her, she’ll end up chatting and is very down to earth. I love that she does her own stunts, is family-oriented, tough, a philanthropist and of course, smart.
Elisabeth Moss at 1:39.
I wish people would stop dumping on her for being a Scientologist. How does Scientology affect mine or anybody else’s life who isn’t a Scientologist? It doesn’t.
Protesting funerals? No.
Screaming their views on corners? No.
Telling people they’re going to Hell? No.
Communities outsiders aren’t allowed to live in? No.
A form of their own law they try to push on outsiders? No.
Types of Extras You Will Find On Set - Film/TV/Commercial/etc.
Sometimes, these are in combinations, i.e, someone is union but also a kvetcher.
Union Actors - A check is a check! They check the clock for meal penalties, overtime and golden time. Hearing there will be smoke on set, their clothes getting wet, etc., is also dollar signs to their ears.
Non-Union - Get paid very little and sometimes, are treated poorly.
Sunset Blvd. - Vain for no reason. They are ready for their close-up! Ultimately, they’re just a blur in the background and yet, are convinced they deserve an Oscar.
Vultures - They will push you out of the way to get to craft services and will use the tables like their own personal grocery store, filling their bag with candy, chips, anything.
LMTFA - Leave me the f alone. Don’t bother ‘em. Headphones and a book.
Audition: Post Discussion About Neanderthal Females Having Larger Pelvises.
- Assistant: Melina, we're going to pair you up with two guys. Is that okay?
- Me: Sure. Guess I'll need a Neanderthal pelvis!
- Assistant: (jaw dropped)
- Guy: (covering his mouth)
- Me: That's a callback in comedy.
- (it was my best, most fun audition yet so this was all okay and they wanted a funny chick)
