"She was able to literally captivate an audience of SAG Actors within 30 Seconds." LA Life Raft Program Director
At every audition, you have only seconds to grab the attention of the casting director.
AND THAT IS WHAT ACTING SCHOOLS DON'T REALLY TEACH
Why are Foreign Actors more and more taking over American
They are more "well-trained" and have more "depth" and are
more "complex" than many American actors.

Bi-coastal Talent Manager
Before you step in front of a camera again or read for another casting director, ask yourself:
Feel like a Talking Head when you act? Afraid of monologues? Readings leave you out in the "cold"?
Know what you want to do with sides or a script, but it doesn't come out that way?
So, you start rushing or chopping or pushing, making it sound and feel even worse?
If you answered "Yes", to any of the questions, you're not alone. Many, if not most, actors fear monologues and most are frustrated by the hit or miss of cold reading. So, what can you do?
Learn to break the rhythmic code in any text: TV and film, commercials, contemporary or classic theater. Learn to get inside the words and emotions.
Learn how, and start nailing auditions. Otherwise, you won't forget the bad auditions and neither will the casting directors.
Foreign actors work on both audition sides and/or monologues and your accent at the same time. Sound more American and act more freely in English.
* The title "Drop-Dead" Cold Readings was inspired by a Bi-Coastal Talent Manager who told me Casting people wanted only "Drop-Dead readers" submitted for roles."
