Today, I read lines for the role of a 13 year old character named "Hannah" to help a student director audition some older actors for the main role.  While I am too old to be cast in the film, it was a freeing experience because I was able to completely focus on helping my scene partner try and reach the emotions he needed.  I suppose acting should always be more about your scene partner than yourself, but it's hard to remember that at an audition because I focus on how much I want my own role.  In turn though, I was really happy with my own performance without even trying hard to make it "touching".  I suppose there's a life lesson: "focus on other people cause it will make me a better and happier person" (and hopefully land me some good roles in the future).
