I auditioned every day last week - some days twice or thrice.
And I booked two gigs: One on a long-running network drama, the other on a new network comedy. But don't cheer yet... The role that I booked on the comedy was written out (booo), and the deal isn't yet done on the drama.
This is the stuff nobody tells you when you're either outside of the industry looking in, or a newbie. I can't be excited because it's not "real" yet. And should I get the call today that they want me to work on Wednesday, I have to move an ADR session that the producer of a film I worked on early this year took a week to coordinate because of all of the actors' schedules. I can't tell him anything because I don't know anything.
I'm not all "sour grapes", just been in a holding pattern for almost a week now. And yes, it's good to have the drought brought to an end, but right now it still feels like a mirage. I need some water in my cup.
I will keep you posted.
