    The longer I stay in the acting game, the more I understand what is true and what is merely an old wives tale passed along year after year because nobody bothers to test out all these acting “truths.” For instance, have you ever heard that auditioning is a numbers game? “It takes 30 auditions to book a role.” Sounds like a cold hard statistical fact, like flipping a coin or rolling a dice. On the surface, it seems to actually make sense. After all, it is measurable: If you divide the number of auditions by the number of submissions, you would get a very specific ratio. The mistake lies in believing that bookings are random; that every audition has an equal chance for success.
