However, even with a lockdown, we have to start embrace the power of community. (Thank you Zoom).
Being an actor can be very isolating at times (let alone during a global pandemic).
When you first get an audition, you lock yourself in a room to study your script.
When you arrive at your audition, you feel like a social outcast in the waiting room, trying to stay calm amidst a sea of other passionate artists.
When you leave an audition, you rarely get any feedback unless you book so this can also create a feeling of loneliness.
