The Best Audition No One Can Top!

Pure inspiration: This is every casting director’s dream. In fact, Marci Liroff who happened to be the casting director for E.T. (one of the most popular movies ever), describes this audition with Henry Thomas as “one of the most amazing and moving audition experiences I had really ever been through.”

Be inspired by his childlike imagination and listening skills that moved the audience so deeply. Liroff recalls that “in about three seconds flat he had us all crying behind the camera. He just became this little boy.”

Be real. Listen. Imagine with a childlike imagination. To all actors and dreamers out there: take this as an encouragement and inspiration.
