As I have mentioned before, I worked as a casting assistant in my late teens, which meant on casting days I wrangled the actors. This was usually fine, but not always. Not everyone is pleasant.
Some people just heard from their divorce lawyer.
Some people feel fat.
I wrangled them all and thanks to watching my boss, the incomparable Beverly Long, I learned how to handle the febrile ones.
1. Sharon Stone, pre-BASIC INSTINCT but post-TOTAL RECALL, a request from the ad guys, they would pay whatever. She was utterly vile to me, the lowly assistant.
