12 Days of Advice: Day 11

Another actors tidbit from Amy Jo Berman but can be applied to any occupation and even relationships too:

If you gave an absolute KICK-ASS audition, you may not get the role simply because you’re too tall and the person playing opposite you is 5’2”…or you look like the Producer’s brother and he hates his brother.

But most often, the reason you don’t get the part even when you’ve given a totally amazeballs audition, is because of your mindset.

You may have a deep-seated belief that you don’t deserve it or you’re not good enough and that comes through your amazing audition and tells the Casting Director not to hire you.

Truth.
