    Imagine you had managed to get every single audition you have ever been up for...where would you be now? :)

    King of commercials if nothing else!! Oh, and living a somewhat more financially comfortable lifestyle!

    No one is replying Peter, this was clearly a rubbish thread but yes you would be the king of commercials and I would be the queen :)

    We're like the Kate and Wills of commercials, albeit we're in this hypothetical made-up world, and they actually will be King & Queeny!

    I'm hoping one day I will be seen for TV so I can then add to this thread! One day...! (And I think it was a rather good posting too!) :)

    No such thing as a 'rubbish thread' Lucy. If you want to vent it - get it out there.

    I think you would probably never need to audition ever again....

    I'd have been in a BBC period drama aged ten... then a feature film with Prunella Scales aged eleven... and in the CBBC show Microsoap! Heh heh. Started young.

    As it was, I was at school learning Britney Spears dances. Exciting stuff.

    I'd be on the side of ever Irn Bru truck in Scotland smiling and dressed as a blue cuckoo instead of looking decidedly pi$$ed off driving them! Got down to the last 2 for that one back in 2004 and they went with the other guy! That single audition right at the start would have changed the whole direction of my career and would have made nailing hundreds of subsequent commercial auditions! :-o

    It makes me think that maybe I should have made more of the opportunities that were given to me, not that i didn't try because I definitely did, but because some of them were very, very exclusive and I don't think I'll be likely to ever come across something like them again but there are so many variables and circumstances to be taken into consideration! Most of which are in the hands of the CD's and there's nowt you can do about it!

    It depresses me a little to think that there was the opportunity to be the lead in a Bryan Singer film, tour America with one of the best plays to come out of Scotland in the past decade, work with the BBC and some of the best theatre companies in this country... BUT it was not to be. I kind of know how you feel Forbes. Seeing the poster of whatever commercial/film/theatre gig it was and think 'whatever you did in those 10 minutes that you went into that room after me certainly worked'! However, I don't drive trucks so I'm spared that little twist of the knife you've got! Could have been frickin loaded too!

    I think the easiest way to deal with it is think, well, they thought enough of me to get me into that room! So what if they chose a 'name'! It would have been a risk and maybe in a few years, I'll be a risk worth taking for them.

    To infinity and beyond! Or to the next dodgy satudent film casting... which ever comes first really.

    I wish you'd got them too. Then you would be fricking loaded and take me out to a nice dinner at the Ritz.

    I'd be fricking loaded but I think I'd be taking Keira Knightly to the Ritz instead. :p
