(about her auditions)
Alison: For every part I get, there are probably three that I don't get. There is no real reason to get discouraged if you enjoy it enough, and if you remind yourself not to take it personally. It can be a challenge to avoid getting upset, but there is absolutely nothing you can do. There are often moments when I feel it's necessary to yell and cry over losing a role, but there's always something else around the corner... I've gotten to a point where I forget completely about an audition after it's over (or at least I try to), and I move on as if I know I didn't get it. It may sound like a defeatist attitude, but it's important for the survival of your sanity as an actor.
