#97 Steve Carell's TV Wife Laura Niemi Tells All

• 38 min

Chances are you’ll recognize today’s podcast guest! Laura Niemi plays Steve Carell’s wife on FX’s The Patient, now streaming on Hulu. #NoBigDeal  She’s also had roles on Stranger Things, Grey’s Anatomy, This Is Us, Veep, and NCIS.  If you’ve EVER considered leaving your reps, but were afraid to do so, her story carries a message I KNOW you’ll relate to… Most actors think BIG TIME ROLES will make their career easy breezy. Hold up Covergirl! Yes, credits can help… But I’mma bet even Academy Award-winners Viola Davis & Olivia Colman worry if their reps do a good job putting them up for roles they’re truly right for. At one point in their careers Viola & Olivia probably had a hard time saying goodbye to reps that weren’t reeeeeaaaaaally working out.  So before you decide that fancy credits solve everything 🌈💰→ You’ve gotta hear Laura’s journey to signing with perfect fit reps and landing her first Series Regular (opposite the 40-year old virgin himself!). LOOKEE HERE: It's tough to humble yourself and say, “I need some help.” And that applies whether you’re 5 Guest Stars in or haven’t landed your first co-star yet… amiright?  When Laura came to me, she didn’t feel ready or prepared, in fact she was doing the resistance tango when we started, BUT she was willing to put herself out there in a new way… and that’s when everything changed! SPOILER ALERT: Laura got 50 meetings with new reps (and she did this through using my program #agentgoals…)  So whether you’re reaching out to reps for the first time, considering a move to next level reps, or you just want some good ol’ fashioned inspo of how one hard working actor is making it happen, this episode is for you. PS: Laura’s Christmas Eve self-tape audition journey ALONE is worth the price of listening… which is free!
