For African American Actors – A Few Words of Advice
I watched Kerry Washington on television the other night. She told Jimmy Kimmel about auditioning for her role on Scandal. She stated that many of her friends thought the role was for them and that she didn’t believe her audition went well. But, she went anyway. It was probably discouraging to hear friends say, “The role was written just for me,” and think to yourself, “Well that means the role isn’t mine.” No one knows who is going to get the role, but the person who doesn’t show up, will never get the role.
It was strange to her Kerry talk about being somewhat insecure about the role when she clearly became Olivia Pope in every sense of the word. All of us deal with doubts and fears from time to time, keep going anyway. Every one questions themselves, but every with a little doubt in your head, claim a victory. Talk positively to yourself and watch your life change.
At Black TV Film Crew, we know a lot of actors are out there looking for a break. This may be yours.
Don’t give up and just keep going.
Final note for those needing motivation:
We recently started a Pinterest page to help keep us motivated and remind us of all the talented black folks all over the world. If you’re on Pinterest, let’s connect.
