For most people, forgetting to wear your glasses to a teleprompted casting call would be a disaster, but not for Gold Coast girl Brittany Capps.
Her audition for the lead presenter of men’s lifestyle series Blokesworld was blurry but brilliant.
“I went to the casting and they hired me on the spot.
“They said they really liked how I didn’t just follow the script,” she explains.
“The funny thing was there was a teleprompter there but I didn’t have my glasses on so I couldn’t read what was on it.
“I was basically just making it up as I went along and that’s what got me the job.”
Brittany is well versed in presenting, brand ambassadorship and modelling, but considering last year she was strutting in designer gowns at Australian Bridal Fashion Week, Blokesworld is a slightly different scene.
“Hosting is really cool because you have your own personality on camera,” she says.
“So when I was presenting I could be myself, I didn’t have to stick to a script or pretend to be a certain way.
“It was so cool working with the boys and having a joke around. It’s a different working environment to what I’m used to, but everyone is so friendly and I love seeing everyone’s ideas become a reality.”
She’s also no stranger to hard work, banging out a whole season’s worth of work in one day. But for Brittany it’s worth it to see what other opportunities come her way.
“We basically filmed 20 episodes in one day, which was crazy,” she says.
“I’m so stoked to be a part of this but I’m also really looking forward to doing more in the future.
“I’m so grateful for every opportunity that comes my way, especially in an industry that’s so tough to crack.”
