Is your job project-driven or continuous? Curious…

A bit of both, really.    I work for one casting director, whose name is on the door and who pays the office rent and such.  We work project to project, depending on whichever studio/project hires us to work on whichever project.  When we work on a project, the studio that hires us will pay for her and one other worker, an assistant or an associate, but not both.  She will get the studio to pay me directly, so that they pay into my union benefits as well, and she pays our assistant out of her pocket.  So, all that to say is that I work for one boss, continually, but the pay comes project to project, and I go on unemployment between projects, since I know we’ll get something else soon enough…  My boss has been working steadily since 1979, and the longest we were ever out of work since I started with her was 6 months during the Writers Guild strike in 2007.

Seeing @the_real_diehl_lany in some Shakespeare under the open sky. I love living in LA. Free theater, friends, and beautiful weather. Break a leg, Wifey!

Anonymous asked: They didn't cast Kat's twin sister on Finding Carter possibly because Meg isn't acting right and is focusing on writing.

I assumed as much.  I work in Casting for television, and we see this all the time… brilliant young actors who just don’t love it anymore, or want to take a break to continue their education.

(Aidan Mitchell, I’m talking to you here.  Such an incredible young talent.  It’s a bummer not to see this young man on screen anymore, but I am sure he is happy doing whatever he is doing now.)

Holy Missed Opportunity, Batman!

I’m currently watching the pilot episode of the new MTV series, “Finding Carter.”  The lead character is a 16 year old girl who finds out that the woman who raised her is not actually her mother, but is in fact her kidnapper.  She was abducted from her biological parents at the age of 3. She has a twin sister who doesn’t remember her, and another little brother, born after she was taken.  She spends most of the pilot trying to wrap her head around her major life change.

Please note.  I said TWIN sister.

Kathryn Prescott, who plays the lead character, has an ACTUAL twin sister… Megan Prescott, also an actress.  You might know them from when they played twin sisters in Skins (the UK version, not the shitty US remake).  

Why, then, why oh why would you cast someone else to play her twin, when that moment of our lead seeing “herself” standing in front of her would be so powerful?

Also, Kathryn’s lisp is adorable.  That’s not really relevant here.  I just wanted to mention it.
