After two intensive days of auditions at Marina Bay Sands, has Michelle Chong found ‘the one’ to play her lead actress?
She saw a mixture of contestants who possessed a mish-mash of qualities she was looking for, but some were “lacking in acting skills”, “not effectively bilingual” or “didn’t possess a telegenic face”.
“Luckily I chose the most difficult part of the script for the audition process -- the character was agitated at the end of the dialogue and the actress had to emote -- because if they can do it well, they wouldn’t have as much difficulties for the rest of the movie,” Michelle added.
That said, all’s not lost for the other 799 girls who failed to make the cut – after Michelle announces her pick. The comedienne shared her intentions to sign on a few new faces to her artiste management company, Left Profile, and may even field a few of them in the movie’s scenes in Singapore (90 per cent of the movie will be shot in Australia).
“The auditions are good for us because we got to see a lot of girls and widen our database," she said. "Even if we don’t use them in the movie, we might use them for other productions, and maybe we can even sign a few of them on next time.”
