I had a NUTSO (and awesome) audition last week for a new fall TV show that required my character undergo a demon possession. I love these kinds of auditions because you can't draw from life experience or sense memory to get you there-it's pure imagination and play. Plus, it's ridonkulous.
In the scene my character has been in a catatonic state for 15 years and is just now coming to. She's "normal" for half the scene and then a demon enters her body and she attacks. But before the demon fully takes over, she warns the other person in the scene: "Run....before I kill you!" Shortly thereafter the script says:
She lunges. All demon.
My good friend and audition-rehearsal buddy Eyal and I were trying to work out that lunging moment (he thought it would be awesome if I lunged past frame of the camera at the actual audition) and so we shot that snippet of the scene in my living room as a test. It is marginally bad acting, but it cracks me UP every time I watch it because I am thisclose to laughing. This is how a professional works out the kinks, people. You're getting a true behind-the-scenes window in!
