Here’s what an actor should do before every audition in order to increase their chance of becoming a working actor.
The” Twilight” star, Robert Pattinson, once told a UK tabloid that his schedule is so hectic that he won’t wash or change clothes until “it gets to the point where even I can’t stand the air around me.” Other people can’t stand it either. Reports from the “Twilight” set claimed Robert drove crew and cast members crazy “because he smelled so terrible.”

Hygiene is probably one of the most important factors for any actor wishing to appear in the big screen. Think about it. Auditions are like surfing for matches on Tinder. Casting directors keep swiping until they find the perfect fit for their next production. That is why you want to always look and act your best at all times.
Here are a few tips to building your acting career.
1. Make sure you are physically fit, clean and presentable.
2. Your clothes are always clean, trendy, and appropriate for the audition.
If you know that you are about to have an audition, prepare the night before by getting plenty of rest, laying out your clothes you plan on wearing and waking up early enough to make sure you can get ready and arrive on time. Being well-rested, early, and prepared for your audition really helps you concentrate on your acting performance instead of worrying about unnecessary things.
Also, remember to always have an extra pair of clothes with you at all times. That way, if you accidentally stain your shirt or pair of pants, you can easily change into fresh pair of clothes right away.
