Lisa was very kind to provide me with information in regards to her business. I also asked Lisa a question to support actors who are just beginning the audition process. I asked Lisa “If you could say one thing to actors, just starting out in the business..one piece of advice..what would it be?” Lisa’s response is below.
“For actors starting out, it’s critical to be professional & be prepared at auditions! Arrive early, know your lines & character, dress appropriately, be positive & upbeat, and present yourself like a veteran. Time is money in any business… & particularly in “the industry”; you show respect for clients, agents & casting directors (and also illustrate you’re strong talent) if you’re consistently early, prepared, positive & deliver an impressive performance… because of your preparation beforehand. PREPARATION POWERS PERFORMANCE!”
