Rizzoli & Isles

I’ve hit a slow spot in the background acting biz… but I spent yesterday on the set of Rizzoli & Isles. Yes, all the things you’ve heard about acting to a non-existent scene (prime example: something happening on a green screen that will be put in later) is true; yesterday I had to act scared by a bad guy who wasn’t there and it was not easy. Often a show will put an assistant director (AD) in the spot and have them read lines or act menacing (few things will frighten a background actor more than a menacing AD 😉 ) but yesterday nothing was there but a pile of unused props. Still, my fellow actors and I seemed to acquit ourselves well.
