3 Tips To Nail Small Role Auditions…Without Being Boring


They are the devil.


Small roles — 1 or 2 liners, featured, co-stars…

Whatever you call them, they can be some of THE hardest auditions you ever have in your acting career.

Even seasoned professional actors with tons of credits have the hardest time nailing these little devils.

There's a good reason for that…which I will explain in the video below in just a sec.

Since we're talking about the video you're about to watch, (excerpted from a live stream I did on this topic) here's something important to take note of…

And it's the KEY to these 3 audition tips working in your favor.

They're not independent of each other.

They work together.

When you apply these tips in unison, you can vastly increase your chances of nailing small role auditions.

Make sure you watch the whole thing because they way it comes together in the Q&A after the 3 tips, gave many actors some big ol' AH-HA moments (and I think it will really help you too).


In this video, you'll get the answer to:

How Can I Book More Of The Co-Star Roles I Audition For?


Now that you've watched the whole video, did you see why so many actors had AH-HA moments in the Q&A section?

This is the stuff that books.

So, don't just watch, DO IT.  Take action.  Apply it.

Learning how to systematically apply these tips can be the difference between you having a frustrating year in your acting career and having a non-stop book-a-thon in your acting career.

  1. I had my first audition at Jennifer Cooper Casting for an additional role for a brand new Quibo series. I could hear the other actors in the audition room and was so unimpressed because they were definitely not creating a character. (Some of them may have gone too far; they literally sounded like they were reading the script :)) But they all were clearly well known to the casting director. I was mystified until I watched your video last night. Now I understand: They were hip to your message and knew exactly what to do — not overdo it. Lesson learned!!
