Yep. That’s my name

Hi all! I’m Jon Snow. I’m an actor, who who has been a reader for the last three and a half years at various casting offices around Los Angeles. I just started a series about my experiences as a reader in the hopes that I can help anyone else who has ever felt intimidated,or overwhelmed,or mystified by the casting process.

Omg, JON! I love everything about this! Your post subject is hilarious, I totally understand what you do and who you want to meet, and I want to be your new friend! If you were here, you'd be getting a "new friend" hug! LOL!

Also, loved listening to talk about the alchemy from discovery as an actor. Have you had a chance to post in the Actors Lounge about this? I'd love to know what our community members think, too!

During my film school days in Colorado, I joined many projects as casting director due to my abilities as an actor, director, and producer. Admittedly, when the time came to switch gears and audition for myself, silencing all those other functions to become present and responsive to discovery was my challenge. To be fair, there are far more distractions with film students. LOL!

Have you been to the in-person LA meetup at The Pheonix? If not, I'll meet you at the next one!

Thank you Karen! I really appreciate the support. And thank you for the reminder to put this up in the Acting forum.

This is great! I'm an an acting coaching at the Anthony Meindl Acting Workshop, currently doing my On-Camera class via zoom. Maybe in the future, I can have you be a guest for one class and give some of your valuable information!

Jon Snow

Sure, Nina! Be happy to talk about that
