I just went in for a reading for the latest X-Men movie: First Class... I was tremendously nervous and reading my lines the best I could. But I have absolutely no acting experience. I actually hope that I get a call back, but I'm not holding my breath.

I was auditioning for a role named Willow (expectantly I don't get in trouble for blabbing details on the off-chance that I get it). It's a role comparable to Mystique [the blue-skinned shapeshifter played by Rebecca Romijn in the X-Men trilogy] from what I comprehend. Potentially lots of body paint, so that would be truly fun.
