On the day of filming, I got a honeywagon, which is the tiniest little dressing room in a trailer you can get on set - as a newbie I was so thrilled to have it and go to hair and makeup. I got to work directly in a continuous walking two-shot with lead actor Jason Clarke who was a kind castmate especially considering how green I was as an actor that day.
After we wrapped, I spoke briefly with our director, John Curran, who encouraged me to make greater headway in my career as an actor. That gave me the vote of confidence I needed to take bigger risks for my career. Thankfully, I'm already starting to see the rewards.
On reflection, I came to understand that I need to work even harder to put myself in the path of opportunities of a similar scope. To that end, I decided to put myself in the position to audition for work more frequently so I moved to Los Angeles, the epicenter of casting for the American film industry.
You have to find a way to celebrate screening for an audience of five as much as you envision you could appreciate winning an Oscar. Savoring the work itself and the little victories is what helps you to survive the other 'thousand natural shocks' the actor's life is heir to, as Shakespeare put it.
