I haven't read the book, yet, but I've watched the audition videos on here (they're great!) and I just found out that Shailene Woodley got cast as Hazel. Officially. OK, I wasn't too disappointed when she got casted as Tris, but now it's like...please- stop- stealing- these- amazing -book roles when there's undiscovered talent out there? I mean I'm so happy for her that she got the role of Tris, I mean, she fits her well, but since she's already going to go on set for that, then why TFIOS already? Get where I'm going?
I'm also sorry for anyone who wanted to play Hazel really badly. I know how you feel. But I promise there's going to be an amazing movie role out there for you someday and it could come any moment. But I'm really thankful for this site and the voting cycles because believe it or not, even though I've been here for only three months, they've really helped. so much. Everybody here is so sincere and kind and if it weren't for you guys, I wouldn't be improving, or at least knowing of what I need to improve on. It's not going to be easy to get a casting director to notice us, but I really hope they do.
Here's my advice for anyone who wants to get to audition for their dream movie role (this is the closest you can really get if you aren't professional, yet):
1. Improve on your acting skills, get experience, be in plays, etc. and think about taking classes to tone your skills. (you're probably at this step now)
2. once you feel you're ready, get an acting agent. This is going to get you to possible movie auditions.
3. to get an agent, search "(insert city name) talent agency" and a bunch should come up for google maps, and stuff like that. If you live in/near a big city like LA, NYC, or Chicago, you're lucky because there are bigger chances where you live. With PARENT PERMISSION (if you're like a teen or kid or something) call them and ask if they take clients. If they say they do, then you're set for auditioning to get an agent. Be positive because they do look at your attitude. I mean who wants to work with someone whose constantly grumpy? (ok this is definetly obvious info...but whatever)
4. Before you do step 3, make sure you have a headshot/resume. If you don't know what that is then look it up on google...there should be some info there.
5. If you get an agent, then YAY! I'm not exactly sure what happens from here, since I don't have one yet, but feel free to ask them about your movie role you want to audition for, I guess, and they'll tell you if they can or not or something. I'm not really sure. Like I said...since I don't have an agent. I just know that they're capable of contacting casting directors and getting you do movie, play, commercial auditions etc. But good luck!
I know that info was probably really obvious to most of you guys, since you're experienced actors, but just in case there's anyone out there who needs help...I just happen to know a lot about it :) So yeah.
I know :(
