Typically when actors meet on projects, they receive their audition material a day or two before. Of course, there are times when that amount of time can be shortened or lengthened, but on this particular occasion with Code Black, I had received it the night before. When I read the character breakdown initially, I thought it might be a bit of a stretch for me to play, but after reading the material, and being a fan of the show, I still wanted to have the opportunity to be seen. So, the next day, I got myself dressed in a way that made me feel close to the character I was portraying, and drove to the studio where the audition was being held. I looked around, and thought, “This might be a bigger stretch than I thought.” One by one, the actors were called in, and then it was my turn. I followed the casting director into the room, where I was then notified, that not only was I reading for the wrong character, but I was also reading on the wrong day. “You’re not supposed to be here until tomorrow”, she very sweetly, told me. Good golly, days and character, both mixed up! Well, since I was already there, she was nice enough to offer me the option to read for “Abigail”, but told me that she felt I would be “more right” for “Joan” and it might just be better to come back the next day. I decided to take her good advice, and head home to work on the other material so I could be prepared.
I returned the next day and sure enough, she was right. I was cast as Joan.
I had such a good time working with this wonderfully talented cast and crew. From start to finish, the production is truly, a well-oiled machine. I feel fortunate to have been a part of it.
The episode “Better Angels” will air on CBS on May 2. I hope you’ll check it out.
