Once in an audition a director asked me to do a cold read.

(That’s when you act from a script you’ve never read)

I’ve always done well with cold reads.

After the first try he said,

“Great Robin, let’s try it again but this time, try it like a wounded deer.”

So I did.

I got down on all fours like I had a bullet in my thigh.

He thanked me for my moving performance and asked me to try it again, but this time

“ standing up and maybe a little more emotional and a little less literal.”
