Audition #4 - Homeland
I got an email last night about an Extras' Casting call being held for a new drama called "Homeland". The only problem was that the auditions were being held from 4-7pm in CONCORD, NC and I already had a gig at Duke in Durham until 4:30. The drive is a little over 2 hours and at rush hour through Greensboro...that's cutting it really close...IF I left right at 4:30. Who said this was going to be easy, right? So of course the job in Durham is running about 25 minutes late today...I was getting so nervous... Randa, the incredible woman who runs the program at Duke, knew this was a big deal for me, and arranged for me to leave a little early putting me back on schedule but, still...you know...cutting it close. In spite of the white knuckle grip on the steering wheel, the 2 hour ride was made WITHOUT any traffic slowdowns! In true Tracey style, as soon as I crossed the parking lot, the strap to my bag broke...classy, that's me! BUT I made it to the auditions with enough time to make make it through the line. How exciting...it would be for an extra position, but...we've all got to start somewhere!
