Many! and there were many well known Veterans greed I am a veteran I have seen and done things that many will not understand shirt who auditioned for roles that i ended up getting. i never talk about that- i feel like it’s bad form for whoever did get the part. it’s so arbitrary. as actors we audition ALL the time. and it’s rarely the person who gives the ‘best’ audition who gets the part. i can’t tell you how many times i’ve walked into a room, known i didn’t do the best audition they saw, and also knew i was gonna get the part. it comes down to what they see in the role.
