Even some of the biggest Hollywood stars have to audition for acting jobs – except for Bradley Walsh, of course – and they're often in front of a lot of people who are looking for the best person for their project.
Normal People's Daisy Edgar-Jones has revealed her strangest audition experience and how it helped her future role as Marianne Sheridan in the BBC hit.
"I did an audition for a Domino's commercial," she explained to Harper's Bazaar UK.
"Essentially the whole role was just snogging. I turned up and I didn't realise, because it just said 'young couple' but it didn't say exactly what they'd be doing.
"So I turned up and this lady came out with chewing gum and she was like, 'We're going to be doing some snogging, guys'. I got paired up with this poor boy and we just had to essentially snog each other in front of a panel of strangers.
"I didn't get the job, but I guess it was pretty good practice for Normal People, so that's one good thing."
Daisy went on to say how being on the show has "changed her life in so many ways".
She said she felt she "grew up on the show" as it was her first time in a lead role and she got to learn her craft from some really wonderful actors.
However, she said coming out of the show while the world was in the middle of a pandemic has meant she doesn't really know what her day-to-day life will look like.
"In terms of now, I don't really know what it looks like, because the show came out in a crazy time where everyone was having an odd experience when they step out the door," said Daisy.
"So I'm not really sure if my experience is any different because of Normal People."
She said she's "still waiting to find out" if her life will change.
The BBC and Hulu show was an instant hit when it aired earlier this year, with fans calling for a second series.
Although author Sally Rooney hasn't written a sequel, Normal People's director has revealed how the story of Connell and Marianne might continue.
