Wow, the response to our recent audition notice was phenomenal: we received over 1,700 submissions for three primary roles! Many actors mentioned that they resonated with the characters and felt compelled to submit themselves for consideration.
So after reviewing headshots, resumes and videos, we scheduled 96 women to audition for Bethany, 70 men for Rob and 26 for Alex. I’m very confident that we will find the right actors for our film.
Auditions will take place this Wednesday, June 23rd and Thursday, June 24th. Then, a chosen few will be asked to return on Friday for “callbacks,” which will allow me and Jennifer to spend much more time with our top picks. If all goes well, we will make our final decisions this weekend!!!
I’m very excited for the audition process and I look forward to sharing how it goes with you later this week.
