8. Understanding “branding” and your unique skillset as a performer

One of the most important things you can do to give your path in the entertainment industry immediate definition is to brand yourself.  This means you have a keen understanding of what a casting director’s first impression is of you when you enter the audition room, Based on this, your skillset and your previous life experiences, you should have between 1 and 3 primary roles for which you are well-suited.  So how do you brand yourself if you have never been defined in that manner?  And what do you do if you are truly a versatile performer?
