Mission Brief

My name is Terry Torres, and I am an actor.

"With the economy in this condition, why choose a profession where the unemployment rate hovers around 90% on a good day?" Without getting into a lot of psychology, it's probably because I'm immature and naive.

The fact is, I like it. And more over, it's what I went to school for. So, to validate my education, you better believe I'm gonna land a role of some kind - unemployment rate be damned.

And since I'm gearing up to be a real, professional actor, I have finally equipped myself with an actor's most important weapon: shiny new headshots.

Irresistible, wouldn't you agree?
I have received 10 complimentary prints of my headshot from my photographer, because he's such a nice guy.

10 headshots. 10 photos of my smiling face. 10 opportunities for employment.

This blog exists to help me answer a question.

Can I get cast before I run out of headshots?

Join me on my adventure through the casting process, as I detail my experiences at 10 different auditions in the Boston area.

You will meet my adversaries - the companies who challenge my spirit, as well as my own doubt and complacency.

You will meet my allies - my friends who provide me with valuable information and support me through my journey.

And hopefully, in the end, we'll all have learned a little something about ourselves.

  1. Nice blog Terry. Very clever.
    And even if it requires getting a few non-complimentary headshots, I'm sure you'll get there.

    Good luck!
