Auditions really are like buses. You wait and wait but it doesn’t come, then out of the blue a two come together. I am happy to say that my two buses, I mean auditions, came through today after a 4 month dry spell.
Surviving the drought is the hardest part of being an actor. It seems to me that after four weeks of hearing nothing The Actor starts to get jittery. And slowly but surely the confidence begins to dwindle whilst the paranoia soars. You start to wonder if you will ever work again and begin turning your sights towards other potential career paths…
Only the true will make it through the hard times. If you are meant to be an actor then no amount of rejection and neglect will stop you. I have my survival methods, what are yours?
