AUDITION BLOOPER #2

HERE IS ANOTHER FROM THE SERIES OF INTENTIONALLY BAD AUDITIONS, with Chip Persons
video
In this clip, Chip is making a classic mistake. He's not listening. He becomes very animated on his own lines, but a zombie while I'm reading. In fact instead of listening and reacting, he is reading his scene partner's lines. Listening is very important in acting, especially on-screen acting when the camera is often on the listener. Don't throw these moments away. If you're good at listening and reacting, you'll get more screen time. Casting directors are looking for this in the audition process.
