So you’ve got a meeting. For a telly.
And it’s going pretty well.
You’ve worked with the director before and you share an anecdote that makes the producer and the casting director wet themselves.
And they laugh when you talk about the dog.
And the lines come easily, and the scene feels good.
And when the director asks you to be more front foot and faster, you are more front foot and faster. And the director nods at you and winks, like, that was what I wanted.
And they smile and nod when you get up to leave.
And the casting director squeezes your hand and whispers ‘Fantastic as ever’ as you leave.
So you go home buzzing a bit.
And you give up your seat to an older man on the tube and people smile at you. Nice guy.
So you ring your agent.
