I had a client call me yesterday and ask if I do a British accent. So going with my improv background I said, “Yes and…” and well, then my honest side kicked in so I added that I’ve never done it seriously but I play around with it all the time. Turns out it’s for a fun phone application. So a fun, not seriously true Brit’s voice would work. The app. obviously hasn’t launched yet so I can’t write more about it but the point is I got to audition for the part.
I believe being positive opens opportunities. Mix in being honest and that builds trust which will get you even more opportunities. I may not be the client’s first pick for this project but I let my personality shine through by giving it a shot and had a lot of fun with it so I feel I nailed it, even if I don’t book it!
Stay tuned and I’ll let you know if I get the part.
