How Diet Affects Auditions
On behalf of TVLesson.com, I'm Lori Wyman with Lori Wyman Casting and I'm going to be bringing you audition tips today from my new book The Organic Actor.
Let’s talk a little bit about diet and how that affects your audition.
Now you’re probably listening to this and thinking, “What is she talking about diet?”
Well, you know I wrote the book, The Organic Actor and the purpose of The Organic Actor is to be natural and to be real, and to let everything just flow.
But when you come into an audition and before that audition, you had your café con leche or your Cuban coffee which is full of caffeine, you smoked a couple of cigarettes so you got the nicotine, you’ve eaten a candy bar which is loaded with sugar, all of these are stimulants.
Now when come into an audition, you're already a little jazzed, you’re a little nervous, your adrenaline is pumping. You don’t need any help with getting your adrenaline pumping even faster.
Sugar absolutely interferes with your memorization skills. Sugar also interferes with your nerves. So if before an audition, you eat and or drink stimulants, there is no way that you can expect to be calmer and have less nerves on your audition.
So please, make sure before every audition you eat a healthy meal, you have a nice tall glass of water, nothing to salty because that will give you dry mouth, nothing too sugary, because that will amp you up, just nice, calm, even, food, drink. It will really make a difference in your audition.
