The casting process doesn’t end when you submit your resume or finish an audition. As an actor, it’s important to follow up with the casting director. This is a way to express interest and find out your status for a role. What is most important is to find a way to follow up in an appropriate manner. I suggest you wait 3 days to follow up and do so with a professional email or phone call. Make sure you come off as friendly and approachable. If you don’t hear anything back I would recommend one more timely follow up at the 7 day mark. You never want to come off as overbearing or annoying to the casting director. Remember, the acting community is small and they talk. You don’t want to get a bad reputation for being a nuisance!
