In an interview by casting frontier, she said:
1) Don’t give up! We are our own worst enemies!
2) Remember that casting directors are your allies and want you to book the role – it makes their job easier.
3) Don’t talk yourself out of an audition. I used to have this horrible habit when I would get an audition. I’d look at the sides, read the character description, and then come up with five solid reasons why I wouldn’t book the job. Don’t assume you know more than the casting director, who thinks you could be right for the role, or they wouldn’t have given you the audition. All that does is mess up for confidence and dim your light.
As we wind up, the short of it is: if ever a superwoman existed, then it’s definitely Allison Munn!
