How One Audition Led To 4 Seasons Of Atypical

I’m back for my 4th season of Atypical (Netflix) and I want you to know that it all began with one audition that my agent (at the time) told me not to bother going on.

Quick backstory: I had just come off of shooting a top-of-show guest star role on Grey’s Anatomy, and this role was a “possible recurring” on a show that no one had heard yet of called Atypical.

My agent didn’t want me to be ‘out of the loop’ for pilot season, but after reading the sides, and wanting to meet a casting office I had never been seen by before, I said, “Nope, I’m going.”

That “possible recurring” turned into four seasons of a role I have adored playing on a show that has uplifted and inspired fans all over the world.  My heart is full and I’m thrilled to be back.

Get all the details here.

I hope this reminds you to listen to your intuition and then speak up for yourself.

You never know where that may lead.

  1. Congratulations! We started watching Atypical after you brought it to my attention. My first instinct recently when my reps decided to not renew my contract was to sign up for your positive messaging audio recordings.
    Thanks for sharing this great story!

    And ‘Yes’ , I always listen to my Intuition, even when it’s wrong 😉 , after all that’s all our sweet spot and where individual lives’ come from ; ‘if a person doesn’t except getting knocked down how do they ever standup’. A perfect life would be to boring for me. Cheers DG
