Actors tell me about their auditions afterwards and usually they have a question that they wanted to ask but were too worried it might hurt their audition. I say:  Speak Up!   It won’t hurt your chances of booking a job if you ask a question. In fact, it might help!

Here are 7 benefits to asking questions in an audition:

1.  Questions allow the director to clarify their direction and note if they made a mistake.

2.  Questions give the Director an opportunity to elaborate on what they are looking for which helps you to know and deliver exactly what they want.

3.  Questions give you clarification so that your mind is free of, “Well this is stupid.”  “Am I doing it right?” and all the other garbage that gets in the way of you being in the moment and giving your best performance when it matters most.

4.  Questions allow you to walk away from an audition knowing you did your best when it mattered most.

5.  Questions show the Director you’ve done your homework and that you’re well prepared.

6.  Questions show the Director that you are an actor who knows how to make a choice and can back it up.

7.  Questions show the Director that you understand and can take direction.

What do you think?  Please comment and use this as an opportunity to help another actor.
