Almost every actor has to audition to get a role in a TV show – unless they're really, really famous. Audition tapes allow producers to see what the actor would like in the role and although most audition tapes remain private, a few have escaped onto YouTube. Flavorwire has put together a collection of the best, including Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner as Arya and Sansa Stark from Game of Thrones, Seth Rogen as Ken Miller in Freaks and Geeks and Lea Michele as Rachel Berry in Glee, but I've put a few of them below as well:

Aaron Paul as Jesse Pinkman in Breaking Bad

Josh Holloway as Sawyer in Lost

Hugh Laurie as House

Blake Lively as Serena van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl

You can leave just about any kind of comment you like. You can argue, suggest I am (or anyone else is) wrong, leaving general messages of love – anything. However, you absolutely can't leave messages that attack other commenters (or me), are simple variations of "your review sucks" or that are misogynistic, racist, homophobic, etc: your comment will either be edited or deleted and you'll be barred from leaving any further comments. We want to keep it civil here.
