'yeah, this is the beginning of something new and exciting and I'm all over it'
..only to bugger it up due to being an airhead.
I got a gig as an extra on Warhorse a few years ago. the filming was local and it was good money - £150 a day. guaranteed 6 weeks work. niiiice
Anyway, I got a confirmation email confirming location etc and what I needed to bring and what have you
I studied this email over and over, checking off all the bits I'd need, checking google maps etc
Anyway, the day of the shoot I got into my friends car, who very kindly offered to drop me (for free!!!!) and checked the email again, just one more time...
...oh no, the filming started YESTERDAY! haha. I had checked every detail, but had only given the date a cursory glance and had foolishly thought it was on a Sunday.
I cried a little - maybe 3 or 4 tears. My career in acting was over.
I could have been something...
Examples of this sort of stuff, please...
