Your Audition Friend
What is it?
We all do it – myself included - call upon our friends for audition help. To be a reader for a tape. To run lines aloud. To tell us if our choices are working. But you feel guilty because they have their own lives, or only so much time to offer, so inevitably you rush through and your work suffers.
What if there was someone to be that friend without the added pressure or guilt? Someone who's experienced in the industry, there 100% for you, to support your unique process, calm your nerves, who you can even call last minute for those same day appointments. So you stand strong in your choices and your talent. Best part - you're not stuck returning favors when you have better things to do, and you don't even have to leave the comfort of your house - I'll come to you!
I know in my own process, I need to run an audition opposite someone to feel comfortable. While I tape. Before I zoom. Because acting can’t happen in a room alone, it necessitates an audience. Yes, even for your auditions. That’s where Your Audition Friend comes in...

- Lioness, Locke & Key, In the Tall Grass -
"Working with Your Audition Friend is a total confidence booster and my perfect recipe for success! Whether it be for an audition or job, I find it extremely helpful to run my lines with Mara. Such a great way to get them in my bones."
- Debris, Kingdom,
City on a Hill, Westworld -
"Mara is my secret audition weapon!"
- Jane The Virgin, Supergirl -
"Mara is not only a good friend, but wonderful to work with! She knows what she’s doing and most importantly LOVES what she does. Anytime we run lines or tape together it's apparent she really cares about what works for my process and wants me to book the job. I can't recommend her enough for self tapes, auditions, running lines or even just emotional support.”
- Grey's Anatomy, Reign, This is Us,
Once Upon A Time, SEAL Team -
"Mara is one of my best friends and I've been running auditions with her for years, long before I booked Reign. Whether it's for memorization, or a self tape, she's great at reading me and what I need in the moment. She's an incredibly generous acting partner, patient, professional, and at times when I'm stuck, knows exactly what to say to change my perspective and improve my performance."
- Boomerang, The Carmichael Show -
"Your Audition Friend is my go-to for when I need last minute help running a scene before a big audition or taping. The mobile service is invaluable and Mara always provides excellent suggestions for how to make a scene pop! Not to mention, she's also just a really nice person -- I'd highly recommend checking her out!"
- Nashville, Aquarius, Outsiders -
"Mara is incredibly insightful when it comes to breaking down material and making interesting choices for the character. She always helps me to find the “play“ in the auditioning process."
