I did get callbacks for Serpent Rising. They had me read for Maria a few times, and then Rose once or twice. I love callbacks, because you get a partner if your scene requires one, and you can actually act it out a bit more.
When I walked in, there were about 7-8 people there. Larry, the writer/director announced me and they all started to cheer. Jason, the guy reading for Paul--I think he actually *is* Paul--turned to me and said, "Don't you wish every audition began like this?" YES. What a reception! So we had fun the moment I walked in.
I found out a bit more about the movie...it's an action-thriller a la The Bourne Trilogy...and they're trying to get John Savage as one of the cops! This would be the biggest project I've worked on to date. For sure!
I told my agent I wanted to do my own stunts, and he said, "No, you don't. If you get hurt, that's forever. 'Body double!!!' " He's right, but...man, I'd like to do some rolling around with a gun! LOL...
Anyway, that was Thursday. I did very well, I'm quite pleased with the audition. And now we play the Waiting Game. It's hard not to be impatient. And I like to go around thinking--and talking--like I already have the part. I'm putting all that good juju into the universe...and thanks to all of you who are doing the same. :)
I know I'm on a short list, I just don't know how short. I also know that they were going to cast a gal from LA, but then I auditioned. I can't tell you how thrilling it was to hear that! That made my month, man!
I've been saying for months now that 2009 is my year. It SO is.
