The Best Way to Follow Up

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!
