Do you remember rolling your eyes when the girl in your English class would ask a question about a character in a book that she would have known the answer to if she had just read the whole chapter? Well, that's kind of how casting directors feel when an actor asks questions that they could have found the answers to on their own. 'Do you have any questions' is often another way of saying 'Are you ready' Be prepared to get started right away through researching the story, the character, the director and as much information you can gather about the production details. Sometimes a director takes a story everyone is familiar with and they put their own spin on it. Knowing that 'Romeo and Juliet' will take place in the 1970's and Juliet will be portrayed as the hippy daughter of a wealthy mobster might make a difference in how you play the role. If these kinds of questions are not answered through your prior investigation, ask! However, be prepared to change the approach you had planned to take in the way you play the character.

You have worked hard to get to this point, so take pride in your training as you talk about it! There is no set educational path for an actor. Many study acting in school and continue their education under acting coaches. It doesn't really matter what your education is as long as you can talk about it with confidence. Talk about what you learned specifically in your training that will prove you have what it takes. Your experience acting in plays and film are a part of your education. You may have learned more from a director than an acting school. Give examples of your work and talk about how your training has helped get you there.
