Your Resumé, Don’t Lie!

Irene's Children

Exec Prod Irene Dreayer & her Dray Kids

Liar, liar pants on fire! Don’t create lies on your acting resumé. We will find out if you lie because casting agents and producers check for facts. I have auditioned kids who put a credit on their resumé for a show I produced and yet I never even met the child. Caught you!

Don’t list insignificant roles either.  For example, don’t list something on your resumé if you were the 453rd extra on a show.  Listing that you were in LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD at age 4 is not going to help you get the role.  These little, detailed roles aren’t necessarily lies but they are just useless. A long list of meaningless stuff or things made up can turn against you.

 

Remember, less is more. Especially if it is the whole truth.  I would rather see a blank resumé than phony credits. I look for talent, the capability to do the role and whether a child is right for a role above any list of credits. Remember, we producers will know all your little lies!  So save yourself a lot of grief and keep your resumé honest.

Tell the truth… and nothing but the truth!
