A British singer and actress has revealed that her audition for the lead role of Carrie Underwoods in a TV movie has been “the worst ever”.
Carrie Underwood, who was just 17 when she was cast in the BBC One musical, was only allowed to audition once.
“When I first heard that, I was like, ‘Oh my God, that’s not going to happen’,” she told the New York Times.
But Underwood is now in a position where she is free to tell her own story about the life of a young woman, and has said she was so excited to audition that she was worried that her first attempt was going to fail.
She said: “I was nervous about my audition because I didn’t really know what to expect.
But I was also really excited because I had seen a lot of movies before, so I knew that I wanted to portray someone in that way.”
In the first few days of her audition, she said, she felt “really nervous” and “overwhelmed” but she managed to “get through it”.
“I did feel really overwhelmed,” she said.
Carie Underwood: The ‘worst audition I have ever seen’.
“It was a lot to take in, so it took me a little while to feel like I could really be in that moment.
I didn´t know how to react to the fact that I had to put up with the pressure of my own audition.”
I don’t think I really understood how big the expectations were for me at that point, or how much pressure there was to make it work.
That pressure of me being able to do the character, I felt like I was not getting that opportunity.
