Hello, Hello!

In this edition of Mistakes In The Making, we hear from Actor Dean Shortland (Best Laid Plans, The Vanished, Nashville). He lets us see behind the curtain into the layers of insecurities all actors must feel. Dean reminds us to trust ourselves, trust that the Casting Director wants us in the role, and bring what's uniquely you to every audition. Enjoy!
