Something that a suprising amount of actors these days forget about with regard to their auditions is the importance of being on time. As an actor, part of your job is making sure that you arrive to the workplace at the time you are requested to and to present the best work that you can. When you give a great audition but show up three hours late, your chances of booking that job will be slightly lowered because you have demonstrated that you are a little bit incapable of being a total professional.
When you are hired to work a job, they want to be totally certain that you will show up and work as a professional, and this means being on time. My old acting teacher used to have this saying and it goes like this, “If you’re early, you’re on time. If you’re on time, you’re late. If you’re late, you’re fired.” This is something that has stuck with me for a very long time, not only because of how clever and easy to remember it is, but because of how true it is.
You need to display the most professionalism that you can with the small amount of audition time you are given. So, when in doubt, arrive 10 minutes early and be ready for anything!
