Oct 14 2021 SAG-AFTRA Podcast: 'How to Crush Your Next Cold Read' Read More

For many actors, having to cold read can be a daunting experience. After all, part of what makes a great audition is the time taken to rehearse beforehand, and cold readings can make an actor second-guess themselves. But while cold readings can seem difficult to prepare for, there are ways performers can practice and deliver stellar performances in the moment.

This episode of the SAG-AFTRA podcast revisits the Aug. 24 SAG-AFTRA President's Task Force on Education, Outreach & Engagement livestream The Secret Science of Killer Cold Reading: A New Approach. The episode features acting coach Clay Banks, who details techniques performers can incorporate during cold reading auditions.

This episode is introduced by SAG-AFTRA National Executive Director Duncan Crabtree-Ireland.
