Back Stage National Edition, August 26th-September 1st, 2010. The theme in this week’s Back Stage is How to Get out of Sticky Situations. The article that caught my eye, is entitled “When the shoe’s on the other foot…How to turn down a role or an audition with grace,” by Simi Horwitz. Here’s a hypothetical situation. You’ve auditioned for a role, and it looks like you are going to get it. You now read the whole script and discover to your dismay that it requires nudity, which gives you the creeps. Or it’s politically offensive, racist or anti-Semitic. Or it’s just a lousy piece of work. Maybe the story or characters make no sense, and the writing is wretched. The bottom line is you don’t want to appear in it. What do you do? According to the agents and managers that Simi Horwitz spoke with, turning down roles for most of these reasons is off-putting and can damage an actor’s opportunities in the future. Some suggestions include, always come from a place of gratitude. Whatever your reasons for wanting to get out of a project, thank the casting director for the opportunity and express how truly grateful you are for being considered. If it’s a problem with the script, you can say, now that you’ve had a chance to look at it closely, you realize it isn’t quite right for you. Don’t be honest. If you want to be honest, be an accountant.
