There's a song in the Broadway show, Chorus Line, that goes like this:
"Who am I anyway? Am I my resume?
That is a picture of a person I don't know.
What does he want from me? What should I try to be?
So many faces all around and here we go....
I need this job. Oh, God, I need this job."

Everytime I audition for anything, I think of that song. Today we auditioned actors in the city for the upcoming video for Stay. We asked 14 men (to audition for boyfriend/cheating husband) and 4 women ( to audition for the wife) the song my character is the "other woman."  Anyway, I myself was's been a while since I have read from any script or had to memorize anything.  So believe it or not, I totally related to their nervousness - that's if they were nervous at all!

It was a great process: Going from looking at the actors' pictures and resumes  to seeing them come to life in front of you.  For the audition, we asked random questions; just wanted to get a feel for their personalities.  We also conducted screen tests in which they all did a scene with me. I have to say I loved the experience. Acting the same scene with different people was never the same twice.  And seeing the eye contact - feeling the chemistry- well, it's awesome!  It's going to be a very tough choice.  I think we know which woman we're going with, but the man??? Hm. It's tough...we got really good talent.  It boils down to who is the better actor; who is "believeable"?  Can the viewers look at him and believe he is a boyfriend - excuse me, my boyfirend, lol?  How does he look on camera?  Is there chemistry between us?  These questions were debated for a couple of hours at dinner this evening with the production crew & honestly, it was intensely exhilarating to be surrounded by people with the same passion for the arts!  I think we have 3 great contenders:  all good actors - and I'm absolutely dying inside to tell you about them, but until we've made a decision, I have to refrain for now.  But I will leave you with this:  one is good with improvisation; one has a vulnerability in his expression that is refreshing; and one has a mystique that is quite sexy...

Stay tuned...there wil be video footage to follow, so you can check it out for yourself.  Good night! Okay, I love you, buh bye!!

PS: I received an email today asking me to audtion for a movie!!!  The cast is GREAT & I cannot even believe I'm getting the chance to try out for it.  Meeting with the producers on Monday to discuss it & possibly read for them.  Holy crap!!  This is so freaking cool!!!!!       


  1. Wishing you TON of luck for the movie audition!!!!

    You say "it's been a while since I have read from any script or had to memorize anything." ..BUT isn't memorizing words to the song STAY still MEMORIZING??? LOL or is it because it would involve romancing/ kissing/holding someone close ON CAMERA which you may not be accustomed to?? XOXXO
