Please forgive a minor digression from the (admittedly somewhat vague) stated purpose of this blog.
Which appears to have caused a ripple in the Universe in that, I’m suddenly getting auditions again.
(for newer readers here’s the scoop. Most of my life I’ve been an actor, I lived in NYC for quite a while doing off and off-off Broadway plays and then moved to LA where I landed some roles on TV. But, once I started Cheltenham Road I discovered that I liked doing this more and while I still have an agent my focus is on CR).
BUT one of the great joys of going on auditions in LA for someone like me who has always been totally fascinated by “old Hollywood” (hence all the coasters) is that sometimes the audition takes place on one of the actual factual classic movie studio lots
This place has such an amazing history!
And, once you’re on the lot you can roam around a bit (within reason).
You’d be amazed how often you’ve seen this street and never realized it was the same one you’d seen a million times before.
20th Century Fox’s backlot is pretty small but if you go to Paramount or Warner Brothers they are VAST and awesome (If you ever visit LA I insist that you go on the Warner Brothers Studio Tour – it’s the best!)
But every centimeter of the property is a potential set.
So while the audition went OK (I didn’t get it) I had a great time checking out the lot!
Next time I’ll be back to our regularly scheduled programming but I just thought this might be fun.
