If you couldn’t be an actor: I would have probably gone to culinary school. Audition horror story: I remember last January going in for an audition/general. My lines were memorized. I had my phone in the general with me. I turned it on for a second before the scene to look something up, and the casting directors thought I was going to use it for the scene. They immediately told me that I should never do that in auditions. I didn’t have a chance to tell them that I was simply looking something up for them. One of them left to get me sides, and the other talked me down to help me feel better. But I was completely thrown off, forgot all of my lines, and bombed the audition. My bad, I guess.
