Tips to Help Actors Create a Character Instantly at an Casting Audition

A Guide to Creating a Stable and Interesting Character Instantly


While you are at an audition, there are absolutely some obstacles that one will find themselves in. Possibly, not even while you are at an audition, but while you are acting in any form. However, more commonly you will experience this particular type of anxiety in the audition room when you are asked to perform a cold reading from the script. It is in these few precious moments that one must zone all of his or her attention to the script and begin to think several critical questions in order to establish a character instantly.

For the beginning actor, even the more advanced actor, establishing a deep and intriguing character instantly is one of great trouble. However, it does not have to be this way. It only takes a few moments, and a basic understanding of human emotions. And after grasping this notion, you can establish a character instantly that has depth and meaning.

As working as a Casting Director for several years, it is very common for me to sit in my casting chair, and watch countless actors and actresses walk in and out of my room with literally the same performance. It used to baffle me when watching, and thinking to myself, "I have seen this person before." And in all actuality I have never met them in my entire life. This feeling was brought on by their performance. It is because each of these actors gave a very flat and, dare I say, boring performance.

If one was to gaze at acting in the sense of a terrain - strange I know. However, visualize a gorgeous mountain range, one full of deep valleys, and extreme highs. There are literally millions of nooks and crannies that one could easily get lost in, and trying to explore the entire terrain would be close to impossible - and yet, one still wants to do so. And now visualize a plane - one from the Midwest, to where you can see for miles and miles. There are no hills, there are no mountains; the only thing that is prevalent within eyesight is flatness. Upon first gaze, one is immediately bored. There is absolutely nothing that catches the eye. Nothing is interesting, and soon one begins to turn its back and walk away.

Talking about Kamehameha the movie is one thing, but his lineage is getting really off base.  Lets bring it back to casting please.  There are a lot of things I have wanted to post... I have refrained.  Please keep it on subject.

Aloha

P.s. Many Local Polys were used recently on Off the Map to play South Americans... 

Comment by Jeffrey Ah Sam on March 11, 2012 at 8:36am

When it comes to Playing the role of a polynesian person, Hollywood doesn't really always go for accuracy ... Take for instance... The Princess Ka'iulani movie.. the actress was not even from Hawai'i... she was from south america...  When Hollywood made a movie about Greg Louganis who is Samoan/European, Mario Lopez who is Latino played that role... 

I'd say at least be happy that if Dwayne Johnson were to land the role  of a Hawaiian king, at least he's a Polynesian and not another Latino... Not hat there's anything wrong with them.. I'm just sayin. Otherwise, write your own movie.. cast your own actors..  Have a great sunday

NEED AFRICAN AMERICAN OR ASIAN MALE TWINS age 23-39 for a Nicki Minaj music video. Identical would be great, but if not identical OK too, since you will be wearing identical pink suits and hats. As long as you are twins. Shoot is Tuesday 3-13 and or Wednesday 3-14. This is a NON UNION shoot.email photo, stats and phone number ASAP. Please indicate if you have an agent and who it is, so I can let them know if you may be right for this. PLEASE do NOT submit if you don't fit these specs. All other parts have been cast.

Thank you

Anna

Kimo stated,
"the physical appearance of the actor playing the role should take precedence over the race of the individual."

I concur wholeheartedly.

Aloha Mai Kakou,

Intriguing conversation concerning the casting of Kamehameha. I think Mr. Johnson would make a compelling Kamehameha and would draw a lot of international interest to the film but historically speaking, aside from his physical strength, Mr. Johnson lacks the intensity of facial features and the towering and imposing stature of the late great Mo'i nui. 

Additionally, I might add, greater polynesia has been a melting pot of pacific rim cultures for millennia. Hawaiian oral tradition describe many different races visiting and or settling in the Hawaiian archipelago; originating from as far away as Europe, Japan, Malaysia, Micro and Melanesia, Pacific Northwest, and South America there is much debate concerning the origins of Pa'ao and Pili. Many contemporary scholars believe they arrived here from the Society Islands or Tahiti, regardless it is my humble opinion that the physical appearance of the actor playing the role should take precedence over the race of the individual. It would be wonderful if the Actor was of Hawaiian or Polynesian descent but it should not be a prerequisite or deciding factor in casting the part.

If not Kamehameha, Mr. Johnson would make an excellent rival as Keoua(the younger) or loyal subordinate as Ke'eamoku

-peace
