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.
