Most actors hate auditions. All actors hate the interim time period between the audition and finding out the result of the audition. I was no different.
During the days after an audition, working as an actor before the prevalence of emails, I was always worried that I wouldn’t hear the phone ring and, so, I would compulsively make sure that nothing was too loud in my apartment. Never mind that nothing in my history with phones presented any evidence that there was even the slightest danger that I wouldn’t hear the phone ring.
