"But if you're coming home, who will play Dead Hooker 2 on CSI this week?"
Excerpt: Screen Test #4 — Trina Echolls
Offscreen: So, Echolls, eh? Any relation?
Actress: Um, uh, yes. Aaron Echolls is my father which, you know, for publicity could be really good for you. He always took a keen interest in my career and my welfare, you know, he'd really kick ass for me. Granted he's not quite as influential in the business as he used to be but he still has his contacts...
Notes in the margin: That psychopath! No thanks. And besides, if she could do better based on his infamy, what's she doing auditioning for a one-week guest spot on a UPN teen show?
Offscreen: So, Trina, in this part you would be playing the bitchy older sister of one of our main characters, Rob. What would you bring to the role?
Actress: Oh, oh, like totally, I would be so there. I mean, I have a little brother and I soooo love him and, and—
Notes in the margin: Not too bright, is she?
Offscreen: Perhaps you missed the bitchy part?
Actress: No, no problem. I love my baby bro but he is such a pain in the ass that all we ever do is push each other's buttons and I am soooo there with that like, like the other day I told him I couldn't get my boyfriend off my back and he, he, like, said I should try standing up and I said...I said something really cutting and witty back that I just can't quite remember...
Offscreen: Thanks, Trina.
Notes in the margin: Maybe as an extra, but I'm interested in the brother. Get his agent on the phone.
