Play • 1 hr 45 min

On this episode I chat with 2 time Emmy award winner Debi Manwiller. She hast cast shows like 24, Chicago Hope and The Blacklist and part of the independent casting company Manwiller/Boast Casting along with Russell Boast.

We talk about:

  • The freedom that came to producers with things moving to self-tapes.
  • Why it's harder for an actor to create a performance in a vacuum, with no in person feedback.
  • The necessity of still having some in room auditions (post-Covid).
  • Your personality and how you might be on set is part of the calculus of a casting decision.
  • Why you need the mentality of "I Won" when you get invited to audition. 
  • The importance of always working on your craft and trying to find a way to focus on other things after an audition.
  • How Debi had to take her own advice when it came to pitching for projects she wanted to cast.
  • The journey of a self-tape.
