So what happens when an audition goes bad?
The problem when this happens is that, try as you might you beat yourself up and you walk out thinking – I should have done this, I should have done that.
Truth is if you prepared, if you knew your lines, if you were easy to like then the casting director will have seen through any stumbles or glitches.
But that doesn’t help you because now you are so busy beating yourself up over it that next time, chances are the same thing will happen.
In the following video for The Village I talk about what happens in your mind and why it isn’t such a big deal if an audition goes bad most of the time
Often the damage is caused by what you think happened, not what actually happened.
