Check direction taking capability
A right actor is one who can take your direction and feedback in the right way. Sometimes the ego of the actor comes in the way and they are not able to grasp your feedback and get into the character properly, which ultimately mars the essence of the movie.
Check the time sense
A film production house incurs lot of expenses when a film is made and the everyday setup is both time and cost consuming affair. Hence if an actor is not punctual or misses his slot frequently not only the launch of the movie gets delayed but also it leads to huge waste of money and time. This kind of attitude of one actor can also have an adverse effect on the other actors and co-workers of the movie. Moreover, it is always best to ask the actor how flexible he/she is for the time slots that you have you’re your movie and for travelling. Hence you will find some premium media houses keep a record of testimonials of the actors that are collected from the producers, directors and co-workers so that they can provide the directors with the best actors.
Do not make an early stage promise
Though just after the screen test you may feel one actor to be the best match for your movie, it is always advisable not to make any commitment about film casting just at that stage. It is always better to get into obligations after meeting all the potential actors.
