Working as a 'regular' on an established TV soap is the dream of thousands of actors out there.

One man who makes that dream a reality, is head of casting at Channel 4's Hollyoaks - Mr Peter Hunt.

I dropped by the set of Hollyoaks to have a coffee and a chat with Peter, in order to find out how actors can increase the chances of making their soap dreams come true!

During our chat, Peter and I discussed:

  • Peter's journey into casting.
  • The other incredible people that make up the Hollyoaks casting team.
  • The casting process at Hollyoaks.
  • Why you need to simply 'get over yourself' before you attend a casting.
  • Why you shouldn't worry about your emails being read by the casting department - because they WILL get read!
  • Why you really MUST quit procrastinating over your showreel.
  • General auditions and how you can increase your chances of getting one.
  • Peter's 3 pieces of life advice for every actor out there.

And MUCH MUCH more!

This was such a fun chat! You really will love every second of it!
