Aaron, an award-winning actor, and screenwriter shared a similar experience.
I heard Chris Pratt (who I get compared to often) say he booked roles early on in his career because he won the room in his auditions and that has been my experience too and Covid has ruined my ability to do that now. I love the convenience of taping at home but I miss the room.— AARON is crowdfunding! (@AARONHALE) June 21, 2022
