I got the audition off a website called LA Casting which is one of the only resources young actors have when they’re first starting out and don’t have any representation.
I submitted myself and went to a tiny theatre in West Hollywood.
There were girls going in ahead of me and coming out shaking their heads and seeming frustrated and I had do idea what was going on in there. I went in and sat down.
Usually in an audition you hand them your headshot and they ask you certain questions and that kind of thing.
In this case I walked in and sat down and Oren, the director, said to me, “Why is your house haunted?”
I just immediately jumped into it and started telling him why my house was haunted and I was just making it up and creating it as I went, and that’s how the audition went.
We just sort of talked back and forth and improvised and then he was like, “Oh thank you so much.” And I left and that was the beginning.
Later on we had call-backs and that’s when I met Micah for the first time and it was the same thing. He said, “Tell me about when you guys met.”
And Micah and I started talking about our trip to Europe how we were both students and we had gotten into each other... and of course none of that was real.
We had just met right then in the room, you know. But we clicked.
