So this is how pathetic the acting biz is: yesterday I went in for a tiny part in a feature film; Latina Nurse, accent, 7 speeches, 2 lines.
I knew EVERY one of the other 11 girls that had been called in. (We were sent straight to callbacks) The ONLY thing we had in common? We were Latina. Most of us had been in the business over 20 years. A lot of us are classicaly trained theatre actors. Some of us were VERY pretty, some not so much. All of us are no longer in our 20's. Some of us have had success. All of us were fighting for a role that was basically exposition.
I should call my agent...
