Casting for new films is exciting and stressful. Exciting because you get to meet new actors and see each one in action. Stressful because you wonder if you can find the "perfect" actor to fit the role. Being a writer and auditioning actors for the roles I've written, I'm intrigued to see if they bring the character to life how I envisioned them in my mind. They also help me to hear if the dialogue I've written sounds real. So far I've hit the nail in the head. I also leave the actors open for interpretation of the role. I want to see what they bring to the table on the first read. Then for the second one I'll give them pointers.
