I was 24 and @jeremyjacksonfitness was 13 at the time.
When I showed up at the audition there were young ladies there likely in training bras and head gear; I was certain I was not what they were looking for.
I went to the desk and spoke to the casting assistant basically explaining that it would appear I am not right for the part and I don’t want to waste anyone’s time. She asked me to wait, I did... I was encouraged to audition anyway. Fern, the casting director and executives cast me in the room.
From that appearance Wendy Greene, an agent at Irv Schecter ( at the time ) called me at home ( how did she get my number? ) to tell me she wanted to rep me. I went with her and was booked on Malibu Shores then Buffy shortly after.
