RESHOOT!!! The actress said she could ride a motorcycle.
We show up and she's sitting there on the motorcycle surrounded by production and agency, looking scared shitless.
Anyways, we had to hire another actress to do the reshoot! That may have cost the production company another $50,000! big money at stake here.
During the audition the actress said she could ride a motorcycle no problem. So everybody believed her and she was chosen for the role.
And on the day of the shoot, she said she could ride motorcyles but not that one. That's lame. It was a regular motorcycle….
For the actress, the phone call to her agent definitely occurred. Probably multiple phone calls. Who pays for this mistake? The agent looked bad. Their relationship with the production company is damaged.
The actress relationship with the agent is damaged. Now they can't trust her. HUGE problem. And it's a small town (Los Angeles). Word travels like fire. The moral?
Don't misrepresent on your acting resume! :-) And definitely FESS UP in the audition if you can't do what you said you could do on your resume!!!
