I cast Mike Gaudioso for the role of Dr. Montgomery in my short film, Abyss, because he has natural talent that cannot be missed. Gaudioso became the character during his audition, rather than “acting” like a medical professional. Members of my casting team who reviewed his audition footage agree with this observation, making the selection process much easier -- thanks to a unanimous vote in his favor. Here are some of the things they said.
“This role was made for him” and “I forgot that I was watching an audition”
Needless to say, his chemistry with Rodney Benson worked for the scenes they had together, based on the script!
