Am I Right… for this job?

You’ve been offered an audition (or contract) to play a character from a different ethnic/cultural, gender expression, or physical abled-ness than your own. 

What now?

If you have a moment of self-doubt in accepting a role or an even just audition for a role, explore it. Don’t ignore it. If you have to question how comfortable you feel telling that character’s story, maybe you should have that conversation with the creative team.
