Michelle Monaghan has one piece of practical advice for film actors: be completely off-book in an audition. “All those really opportune moments, when I was able to look into the camera or [at] the casting director or reader, were lost when my eyes were down,” she says of her early acting days. “When I’m completely off-book I have so much more confidence and I can give twice the audition. I’m so grateful when the director will just let the camera roll when I’m not saying anything. What one’s eyes can do!”
