ABTV Loves Sweet Magnolias: Anneliese Judge

Netflix star, Anneliese Judge, of Sweet Magnolias, hosted a Q&A segment on IGTV, answering a range of fan questions,  from her audition process to her experience sharing a set with Jamie Lynn Spears. After a fan requested advice for aspiring actors,  Annalise replied,

“Stay present. Enjoy your life right now. So many bigger and better things are coming. But, you have to be able to enjoy the moment that you are in currently, to enjoy the things that are coming.”

During the Q&A, Anneliese also went into detail about her casting experience for Sweet Magnolias. After submitting a self tape in response to the casting director’s interest, she received a call back a week later requesting that she participate in an in-person audition in Atlanta.

“That was amazing in itself. Callbacks are not something you always get. There is a lot more rejection in acting than there is success.”

Anneliese goes on to share her in-person audition experience with Director Norman Buckley. She describes a vivid memory of Norman expressing his reaction to her audition. 

“I almost knew right then that the role was mine. The director, Norman Buckley, said, ‘this is what I want. This is it’.”
