What Melissa wants actors to know but doesn’t have time to tell them:

  • Know you as the actor has a business and work side to it
  • Make the chart
  • Know who you saw and what they called you in for
  • Send thank you’s to casting directors after an audition
  • Coaching and classes
  • Keeping your instrument tuned
