LA Casting Director Gabrielle Evans
In ActingCareerStartUp.com's continuing quest to provide new and aspiring actors good-quality information, reliable and trustworthy to help them start or futher their acting careers, this page is a perfect example of just that. In this interview with this LA casting director, you will learn about the entire casting process, what casting directors expect from actors when they go in for acting auditions, what they expect with regard to actor head shots and resumes and more. Gabrielle Evans talks about all the things actors need to know before they audition!
This is one of the most-watched videos in the web with regard to what a casting diretor does and that explains in great detail what the casting process is all about and how it works for A - Z. It's the information that I wished I had had at the beginning. It's what you need to know if you are really serious about acting. Gabrielle has a very calming effect in her communication. She explains to perfection the whole process and helps us to understand at the same time what casting directors do and what they look for in an actor. She answers questions about how actors should present themselves, what she looks for in headshots, whether to use props or not, how actors should present themselves to casting directors and just very simply put, what you can expect to happen from the time you submit your materials, (headshot, cover letter, professional actor resume) for a job to the time that you actually get the job or not and everything that happens in between. It's very enlightening!
So, having said that, here is still another video interview that all new and aspiring actors need to see.
On a page here on ActingCareerStartUp.com especially for child actors and teen actors, LA Casting Director Gabrielle Evans talks about the Coogan account, what it is and why it is necessary to have one.

I want to say you changed my life. I want to be an actress so bad, but i began losing motivation when I couldn't figure out what to do. And then I found you! Thanks to you, I'm taking my first acting classes next month! Yippee!
