Hi Tony!
Most people don’t even take the time to tell a person how to reach their goal. I want to thank you for everything and for responding to my messages. Sometimes I just test people to see if they really care about my career and you do. You can continue to send me some tips on how I can accomplish my goals, because you inspire me a lot. Thank you for caring.

Interview with April Webster
Hollywood Casting Director

Let us learn from the experience of April Webster

If you have ever watched television or gone to the movies, you have certainly seen or at the very least hear of programs such as Knigt Rider, CSI Crime Scene Investigation, Alias, Lost and Army Wives. It is equally as probable that you have either seen or heard of movies such as 2012, Mission Impossible III, Star Trek and The Day After Tomorrow Well all of these projects and many, many others are just some of the credits of this well-known Hollywood Casting Director, that I had the pleasure to interview in her home..

I really wanted to interview April Webster for a couple of reasons. One, because she has been a casting director for so many years, worked on so many great and important projects and I knew that she could give you, my readers and website visitors even more great information to help you start and further your acting careers. The second reason is that she is such a genuinely nice person. She's very down-to-earth and as she says, she "cares so much about actors and about acting." You will certainly get the feeling that she is really that way when you watch this video here below. In it is some great information about what one of the mistakes actors make when they come in to audition, one of the things that many actors don't know or don't sometimes realize about themselves that could help them give better auditions. She also talks a little about what she does when an actor comes in to audition who is nervous. These are just some of the things I know that many of you are dying to know. Who better to hear it from than one of the best casting directors in Hollywood? Have a look at this short excerpt from this interview. It will be time well-spent.
