She’s Got Game…
Here’s a little more about “The Lebrons”, directly from Aileen herself!
After months of sitting quietly on this super secret project, Aileen Casas was bursting at the seams to tell us all about it! The LeBrons is currently airing on YouTube and LeBron's website (www.lebronjames.com), and here’s another episode featuring Aileen (from about 2:10 in):
Aileen recalls the course she took to land the role: “The audition for this character contained three lines. THREE LINES? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!? I adlibbed and ‘created the scene’ for my audition. I got a call back a few months later for the same three lines, but this time they wanted five takes with the same three lines but with specific direction.
”While I followed that specific direction, I made sure each adlib was different from the last, which allowed me to create five different scenes. I truly believe that this role could have gone to any of the talents that auditioned, but I feel I booked the role because of my improv skills. At my last recording session, the producers informed me that my audition really stood out and they actually quoted my adlib!
”Now I am part of awesome cast and a SAG member! I was humbled by the phenomenal cast, OVERWHELMED by the red carpet event and continue to be grateful that I can find success in something I am so passionate about! As always, THANKS FOR EVERYTHING VOICETRAX! “
You’re most definitely welcome, Aileen!
