My First Audition

Last night I got a call from a stunt coordinator asking me about both Jon and my acting experience. I said that Jon had some and is pretty comfortable with acting however I had no experience (not even drama in high school) and that I wasn't that comfortable saying lines (because the one time I had to say lines on camera was with two very famous actors who are great at what they do and I had no idea what the heck I was doing). Ask me to get hit by a car, fall on my head but ask me to say lines and I feel like I am going to throw up.

He said there was an audition for two parts, a husband and wife, with a few lines, however they needed to be stunt people because there was a stunt involved. I told him Jon would go but I just don't feel comfortable saying lines.

This morning I was talking to my dad and he said I was an idiot and to call the stunt coordinator and ask him if it was too late for me to go to the audition. Reluctantly I listened to him and ended up going to the audition. It was scary but fun. I am sooooo glad I went. I am not sure how I did but it was good experience. Who knows what will happen but Jon and I did our best.

Were you nervous about acting like a married couple with Jon? Is that because your marriage is just a farce and really you're just Jon's beard?? Hmmm???

Love you guys.....

Oh Benny you are so silly. For the record I had to act against a woman who was saying the guys lines. So there.
