I've had an excellent pilot season thus far, with several auditions for series regular roles that have gone quite well. I made it all the way down to the director of one TV pilot selecting me out of the finalists for a recurring role, but the network, which has to give their final approval, went with someone else in the 11th hour. Aaargh!!! But I'm grateful for the opportunity and have built on that experience with even better auditions I've had since then.
I recently ran into Peter Berg, Executive Producer/Director of "Prime Suspect" pilot for which I recently auditioned for a series regular role, and was briefly able to "chew the fat" and make myself more known to him. I was also in "Wonderland" several years ago, a short-lived TV series on ABC on which Peter also served as Executive Producer/Director, and I mentioned that to him in our convo. Connecting those dots, baby!
Learning, growing, making mistakes and coming back to do it all over again with some wisdom to guide me. That's how we keep the hope alive!
