Description

Join Scott and Mark with their guest, Rachel Redleaf, as they talk about auditioning for screen acting gigs in-person and online. Rachel is an actor, a coach, and a singer best known for her roles as Mama Cass in Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon A Time In Hollywood and Beth Chapin in Atypical. Soon, she will also appear as young Alma Fillcot in the second season of Paramount’s Why Women Kill, definitely a show to die for. But today, Rachel will be sharing her story, from discovering her passion for acting growing up to landing several roles on film and TV since then.




Auditions Amid the Pandemic




When asked about the audition process, Rachel touched on how auditioning for screen acting gigs changed since COVID began. Usually, she would go to an audition in person but only had one chance to get it right. And if she doesn’t hear back from the casting director in three days, it often means she didn’t get the part, which is incredibly disheartening when someone’s just a novice. But now, auditions are done either via Zoom calls or pre-recorded submissions called ‘self-tapes.’ As much of a hassle as it may seem, Rachel still appreciates the freedom of creativity self-tapes provide. After all, with video submissions, you can do as many takes as you want and still take time to choose which one to send in. Then again, what Rachel loves about self-tapes is that it gives her a chance to truly get in character, whether through their clothing or even props available at home. And if you are looking to get into screen acting as well, listen to today’s episode of Amigospc, where Rachel Redleaf gives some advice on how to audition at the comfort of your own home.




Acting Is Not All Glitz and Glamour




Once you make it into the entertainment industry, most people believe it’s all fame and fortune from there. Even the hosts thought the same when they asked Rachel what her life was like after appearing as Beth Chapin in Atypical. But to their surprise, Rachel’s experience working for Netflix while going to college was not all glitz and glamour. At first, she too believed that her life would be better after appearing in her first screen acting gig. That, once everyone saw the show, she would make more friends. Then again, being in acting school often meant your schoolmates were also competition. After all, the acting industry is no stranger to jealousy. Hence, Rachel’s life in college got all the more difficult. At Chapman University, she often got bullied for her success, often told that she only got lucky or never deserved it. But despite the animosity, Rachel kept going, landing more roles during and after college. Not only that, she now advocates against bullying, serving at Kid in the Corner as a board member. In the end, her perseverance is what brought her the fame and fortune she always deserved.
