How to Dress in Character for an Audition
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 about dressing in character when you go on an audition.
Now often times you will hear a casting director say, “Oh, no, no, no. I don’t want the actors to dress in character. Just come as you are.”
Well, what if you are audition for high powered attorney and you walked in a pair of cutoffs, t-shirt, flip-flops? I don’t care how good of an actor you are. I am not going to be able to visualize you as a high powered attorney. Now what would you wear if you auditioned for the part of a high powered attorney? Well, you’d wear a high-powered suit.
Now, let’s say you’re woman and you’re auditioning for the part of a high-powered attorney. You wear your suit, stockings, heels, right? Now let’s say you’re auditioning for the part of the high powered attorney, you’re a woman but the scene takes place with you on yacht of your biggest client. Then what might you wear to that audition?
Well, maybe a pair of blue slacks, khaki slacks, a white button down shirt, and navy blazer, maybe your hair pulled back. So still business but professional looking.
Now let’s say, you’re auditioning for the role of that same high powered attorney on that same client’s yacht but the client is a man. He’s the only person on that yacht and you’re having an affair with him. Then what do you wear to that audition? I’ll leave that your imagination.
But do you see how absolutely crucial it is to come in looking the role? Because the third scenario, you want to come across a little sexy, right? So make sure that you look as close to the character that you’re auditioning for and wardrobe plays a key role in that.
