I’ve been attempting to write this for days.. hell, weeks. Every way to try and write this has gone through my head and it’s just one of those things that kind of make sense in your head then when you go to write it down, it doesn’t come out coherently. I’m going to do my best though, as I don’t want this to be taken out of context or anyone to feel offended; all I want to do is create a dialogue where there currently isn’t one and maybe, even make someone feel better about being in a similar situation.
There’s something strange but really fun about peeking into other people’s bags. Some are packed with receipts and old to-do lists (The Evil Assistant), other’s are organised to the nines (my grandma), some are so damn huge yet only house sunglasses and a wallet.
While I don’t just go snooping in other people’s bags, I do like “What’s in my bag” posts, although most of the time they’re just the usual crap in there. That’s why I decided to make the first Inside My Bag one that can be helpful to any modern performer, not just actors.
Some things are pretty obvious while some are overlooked and can be a lifesaver when you’re running to an audition. I’ve kept this list pretty unisex, however, if you think there’s something missing (mascara etc) that you always want to have, remember to put it in your little tool bag or whatever you want to house everything in your car.
