"The label you give yourself cannot impact external forces that are not motivated by your own psychology or influenced by a third party's pre-existing consciousness of you. We are all presented with reasons to struggle which come from completely external forces; to pretend that one is not struggling is either arrogance or an admission of defeat. To admit that one is struggling is a sign and a source of strength." - Evan A. Baker

I was at my Wendy's callback today and waited AN HOUR AND A HALF to be seen. Now, if I was actually a part of SAG, the casting company and/or client would have to pay me for my time after an hour passes my appointment.

They auditioned 3 at a time and some groups spent more than 20 minutes in the room, and were then paired up again and then went in the group again for 20 minutes. 

Finally, my group, the next to last one goes in. We read the copy and are excused. Total time? 3 minutes!


So here's me being wonderfully optimistic instead of negative and cynical.


  1. Boo. That sucks. Does AFTRA do anything to protect their actors?

  2. That's the worst...you're totally justified in your anger. A well-run audition is a thing of beauty - and something you deserve!

  3. Frakin' frakers. If you came to one of my auditions (you know, besides just saying hi to me over actor's access) ... I *SO* would not make you wait. I'm very considerate of actors and their time.


Play nice.
