Priyanka Chopra’s First-Ever Audition Was…

Priyanka Chopra, one of the best actresses of all time, has made her presence in the Hollywood industry too. She has acted in more than 50 Bollywood movies and was nervous during an audition in the Hollywood industry? Unbelievable right?

The ‘Quantico’ TV series which is created by ‘Joshua Safran’ was holding its audition and at that time Priyanka was making her first entry in the TV series industry  – that too in Hollywood. She went on to become one of the topmost TV series actresses in the world and also the highest paid.

This was a long time back when the actress went for the audition of Quantico and was extremely scared as there were only 5 people along with her.  Her main reason for being so nervous was that she had never ever given an audition in her entire lifetime! In spite of having done so many movies in Bollywood, she was very nervous. ‘Quantico’ was the very first venture where in the ‘Baywatch’ actress gave her first audition in her entire life time.

Talking to the Daily Mail, she said, “When I picked ‘Quantico’ as a script, I had to meet them and they had to meet me and I had to do a reading. I had never been in a stare-out room with seven people sitting there and had to perform. It was such a weird thing for an actor to do.” She added, “I mean, I can make a complete idiot out of myself in front of 80,000 people on stage, but that is a moment which is like, my hands are getting sweaty thinking about it.”

So how did she deal with the nervousness? In the same interview, she said, “So I talked to myself, completely cliche, in the bathroom before and said, ‘You’ve done 50 movies. What’s wrong with you?’ And I went in there, did my thing, and I got the job.”

‘Quantico’ is an American television drama thriller, wherein Chopra plays the role of a woman named ‘Alex Parrish’ who is a promising FBI agent and then becomes a prime suspect of the Grand Central bombing case. Until now 2 seasons of the TV series have aired and have received appreciation from the viewers aiding making her popular across the globe. The Miss World is all set for the third season of ‘Quantico’ from 26th April onwards.
