A Tale From The Casting Couch

Tanna Frederick was recently interviewed by Jessica Gardner from Backstage West. The title of the article is “Worst Advice” and it’s subtitled “What’s the worst advice you ever got regarding your acting career?” Ms. Frederick was asked in a professional interview with a “prominent gentleman” to take off her shirt. 

She walked out. Good for you, Tanna, for keeping your shirt on. Other actresses have spoken about their awful experiences with this kind of thing – Lisa Rinna, Charlize Theron, Gwyneth Paltrow – all have had one variation or other of this nastiness.

I would love to see a sting set up on one of these guys. That would really show them. This kind of stuff sickens me – casting couch, boardroom, office backroom, wherever. It makes me happy to hear that more and more women are saying ‘No!” to these scuzzballs and that our Tanna Frederick is one of them. Yeah, Tanna!

Here’s a link to the article: http://www.backstage.com/bso/advice-ask-a-professional/worst-advice-1005071322.story



  1. This abominable practice will end when women start going into these interviews with hidden cameras and exposing these jerks.

  2. I say tie them up in a public park and let the women they’ve abused have their way with them. If I had the chance, I’d pour honey on their bare feet and let the flies, mosquitos and other creepy-crawly things at them. Don’t get me started.
