In the last year I’ve almost completely left my acting days behind, not from lack of interest but design work and LiveLikeYou has simply taken over. But since I missed an audition for the American version of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” while in Sweden this summer, I’ve been kind of bummed. Not only did they need someone Swedish, my age, (which never happens!!), but apparently I looked the part. But Sweden was too way too far away…and I was busy working on the blog or painting a cabinet or something…?
Hey isn’t that more fun than playing Daniel Craig’s girlfriend???
So when I suddenly was asked to read for a guest part on the TV show “House” this morning in LA, I immediately booked a later flight and went to audition at Fox studios this morning. Luke is a huge “House” fan and said I just HAD to do this, so I brought him along.
“To be or not to be, I guess that is the question…?”
The process starts something like this…
You get a script that you can’t show anyone, in fact you can’t even read the sides for “your” character. They have one of your headshots. They had this one of mine from last year.
With great lighting and makeup, and a professional photographer they can work wonders. But at 10am after a bad nights sleep…it’s a lot of pressure. I was choking when I saw my Iphone snapshots from this morning. AAAAARRRRGGGHHHH!
I could at least have brushed my hair!!!
It’s truly a fantasy world on the Fox lot.
This was an empty back lot this morning.
The entrances are beautiful. Trees made to look like horses!! But if movie making is magic, I guess it starts at the door….
Luke peeked in at the behind the scenes on some show.
NOW LAST BUT NOT LEAST…
