This works well later in life too

Daniel de Blanke, a freelance composer whose daughter has been working as a child actor for almost half her life (she’s nine months old) says that “not being a big napper” has given his daughter an edge in the business. (Her upcoming spots include a print ad and an online commercial for a rental hunting website).

“Being physically awake during auditions is a big thing,” he explained.

Staying awake isn’t half of it, by no means, but it does help.

And by the way, that’s a very good little article indeed in the G. Might be that the subject isn’t quite to your taste but it is very well done.

  1. So Much For Subtlety

    That sounds like discrimination to me. You can’t just refuse to give someone a job because they are asleep during the auditions.

    After all this has what the Americans might call “disparate impact”. That is, some ethnic communities are more likely to miss important events because they are nodding off than others. The elderly for instance. Which is fine if they are White. Now if it turns out that this adversely affects the more vibrant and diverse sections of British society, it needs to be banned.

  2. This is a stark contrast to the quality of the previous piece I was reading.

    A key statistic from the ACLU’s letter was pulled from a study out of USC Annenberg that found only 1.9 percent of directors of the top-grossing 100 films of 2013 and of 2014 were women.

    It appears that the sample size is 200. This means that at least one of the directors had to be less than 100% female.

    Even with transgender how do you quantify someone as 80% female?

    What is the other 20%?

    This is one of the reasons why I can’t do Tim’s job. For any who enjoy mental BDSM ThinkProgress is happy to provide.
