Lukas Gage, who is best known for his role in Euphoria of HBO, shared a video on his social media platform handle, Twitter, yesterday of him getting prepared for an audition over Zoom.
Gage wrote while posting the video, that “Psa, if you are a sh*t talking director, then you should make sure to mute your sh*t on zoom meetings.
Lukas Gage: Unknown Director Criticises His “Tiny Apartment” Without Muting The Mic! Who Was It?
At the beginning of the clip, which has racked up even more than 4M views, Lukas is fixing his hair when a voice quips up with a British accent that said these poor people live in these tiny apartments like he is looking at his background and he has got his television and his, you know.
Lukas Gage smilingly tells the director that he knows it is a shitty apartment, and that is why he gives him this job so he can get a better one. In addition to this, Gage says that he is living in a four by four box; it is fine, just give him the job, and they will be fine when the director apologizes.
The director says that he is mortified as someone starts to laugh in the background. However, the director’s identity is not known as of now, but Gage has received a lot of support from colleagues in Hollywood for the way he handled the encounter.
Actor January Jones wrote in an Instagram comment, ‘Classy response Lukas.’ DM him who it was so he can make sure not to ever work with that person.
Actor Kevin McHale thanked Lukas Gage on Twitter and wrote that the actors have to walk out on the plank and be vulnerable and open in an audition, and too often, the people on the other side have very less or zero regard for what it takes and how personal it is.
