And lo and behold I was invited to participate on a casting. I came to the head office on a rainy day and spoke with the delightful brand manager who also interviewed me regarding my favourite beauty tip, what attracts me to ads and so on. I think my answer to the ad question was not preferred as I said that I don't like it when mascara ads use obvious fake lashes because, after all, what is the point? What can I say, a girl's got to keep it honest at all times. Unless we are talking away recent shoe/bag/makeup purchases (insert what suits).

After our Q and A we moved onto rehearsing lines and I was filmed whilst saying them a few times. This was great fun, and I hope my Scando accent wasn't a hurdle. The battery on the camera was running out though so it was a little rushed. I did think it went well and I had a great time doing it. I believe it is always important to step out of your comfort zone.
I did however never end up finding out how it went because I had to rush to Norway a week after the casting and suddenly it didn't seem important anymore. I did have a little Google search the other day and couldn't find the ad so it was either not done or maybe it hasn't been released yet? Either way, I will keep you updated and it was a fun experience.
Have you done a casting before? How do you step out of your comfort zone? Does false-lashing a mascara ad annoy you too?
