What may seem like a lull from a bird’s eye view is actually a long period of work, doing multiple auditions to get a job that will ultimately dictate every aspect of an Actor’s life. An audition consists of reading sides for a scene and performing for a Casting Director and/or Casting Associate, and perhaps a Producer and/or Director. Actors work quite extensively with their Agents and Managers on developing their careers and landing roles. When on set, the Actor’s main points of contact are the 1st Assistant Director, Director and any PAs. The Makeup, Costume and Sound Departments will also work closely with the Actors to get them ready for their scenes.
