I did the weirdest thing today.
I went for a screen test at Fox Studios for an upcoming TV commercial where they needed knitters aged between 30 and 50. I heard about it through the Knitter's Guild.
Now if I had have heard they were having screen tests for regular people aged between 30 and 50 I would never have gone because, well, I've never had any aspirations to be a tv extra. But, when I heard about the 'knitters' between 30 and 50 - I felt bouyed by the definition. I may not be an 'actress', but I certainly am a 'knitter'.
The guy on the phone said all I'd have to do is sit down and knit in front of a camera, and there would be no acting involved.
The guy on the phone lied.
I can honestly tell you with my hand on my heart that I completely sucked. I am cringing even thinking about it.
The saving factor of the day was that afterwards I had a lovely coffee afterwards with Donna, Em ahd Tia (whom I heard did very well in there). And Reecie - you looked super hot and were really good, I think you'll get the gig.
