To give or not to give? That is the question.
From person to person in the industry, the opinion will vary depending on advice they have been given, their own experience of giving, gratitude and/or receiving gifts themselves during the holidays.
A big no-no mentioned by casting directors and agents is giving them homemade goodies. If they don’t have a super close relationship with you where you’ve invited each other over for dinner before – it leaves them wondering if your hands were clean or if the cat jumped up on the counter top and put his paws all over the cooking […]
