So I have an audition tomorrow.
It was an accident, honest.
I had no intention of starting a project as big as a play so soon after 'As You Like It' ended - work is very, very busy, and Krissa and I have some Doing Summer Stuff time to get in. But I was curious, and curiosity takes you, sooner or later, to Craigslist, where I found this ad.
And I thought...why the hell not?
So tomorrow I have an audition for a web animation pilot with Dan Meth.
The only question is, just how aristocratic an accent are they after? I can do clipped and clear Queen's English no problem, after a cup of tea and a rich tea biscuit to purge myself of any untoward American influences, but when it gets really posh I need to think things through.
John Hurt's rather evil member of the House of Lords in 'King Ralph' is what Krissa and I always use to make each other laugh...say 'cyellebraited hice' (go on....no, really....) and you have the almost obscenely toffish pronunciation of 'celebrated house'. Not sure I could wheel that out without thinking it through beforehand...but hey!
This could be fun.
