Examples of audition in a Sentence

  1. Actress Mariska Hargitay:

    The message I got from my father was that life is hard, but you just don’t quit, i’d get an audition and he’d say, ‘How hard are you going to work for it?’ So I pushed myself even when I didn’t feel like pushing myself. I acted confident even when I wasn’t. And slowly… I became more confident. [If you] kick fear to the side, the payoff is huge.

  2. Steve Way:

    There have been countless times where I have entered an audition and the casting director just immediately wrote me off without even seeing me on camera.

  3. Robert Pattinson:

    I remember when I first started acting, sort of 16 or 17, I think a lot of actors have their James Dean phase where every audition, no matter what the part is, they come in and do a James Dean impression. I definitely had one of those.

  4. Eva Longoria:

    Huffman's lawyers argued that the sentencing guidelines in those cases were much higher and reserved for the mastermind of schemes, not mere participants. Prosecutors, meanwhile, had argued that universities and testing companies were the victims of the schemes, and the amount that parents paid should correspond to the penalties' severity.But US Probation and Pretrial Services, which prepares pre-sentence investigation reports for each defendant, has argued overall, that the universities and testing companies suffered no monetary harm, and the price of the parents' bribes is therefore not relevant to any sentences. Actress Felicity Huffman loved ones wrote letters of support to the judgeMacy and other loved ones submitted letters to Judge Indira Talwani on Huffman's behalf, pleading for leniency. Each letter outlined Huffman's loyalty and commitment to the writer — an attempt to show Actress Felicity Huffman role in the admissions scam was an outlier in Actress Felicity Huffman life. Macy also shed some light on the immediate aftermath of Huffman's early morning arrest by the FBI in March.Two days after the arrest, Macy wrote, their eldest daughter was headed for an audition at a school she had her heart set on — one that didn't require SAT scores. But when Actress Felicity Huffman got off the plane, the school emailed Actress Felicity Huffman, formally rescinding its audition invitation because of the scandal. Eva Longoria and other celebrities write letters of support for actress Felicity Huffman ahead of Eva Longoria sentencingMacy wrote Eva Longoria and other celebrities daughter.

  5. John Athanason:
