The Artist, Ginger & Rosa, JKF, Natural Born Killers. Sound familiar? Now meet the LA casting director of these films, Heidi Levitt. Heidi has been a casting director for 20 years and more recently she is designer of the first actor app, The Actor Genie. This interview covers The Actor Genie app, Heidi Levitt’s top tips on auditioning and more.
Heidi was very candid with me and revealed some great insider info, like a quality she believes ALL actors MUST have and what she NEVER wants to see in an audition room. So the next time you audition for Heidi Levitt Casting in LA, you’re going to have a little heads up on your fellow thespian lovers! Oh and yes she does conduct worldwide casting searches from time to time. But you’re going to have to listen to the whole interview to find out those juicy secrets.
