This week’s casting celebration is VONZELL SCOTT!
I’m sure every actor has had a moment when they’ve come in to audition and gotten nervous. They’ve memorized their lines, practiced one hundred times in the mirror, had the material down pat just a second ago in the car, but once they got in the room in front of the director, and producer, and casting director, and cameraperson, and reader…they got a little verklempt. It happens to the best of the best, but when you are the one in the room, you don’t know that. All you know is you didn’t do what you wanted to do, and it can be really disappointing.
So our Vonzell had an off audition, but he came back for pre-reads for another episode, not only ready and prepared, but sort of on fire! With a ton of positive energy he rocked out the pre-read and came back in front of the director, and producer, and cameraperson…and he won that role. We all know how nerve-racking and scary auditions can be, but to watch someone learn from an audition and come back the next time and kick ass is so exciting to watch. Keep an eye out for VONZELL SCOTT in Episode #320 of Chicago Fire. Go VONZELL!
