Actor Hits Back At Director Who Insulted His Living Situation During Zoom Audition

Actor Hits Back At Director Who Insulted His Living Situation During Zoom Audition

An actor has hit back at a director who insulted his flat during a Zoom audition - not realising he wasn't muted. Watch the uncomfortable scene here:

Lukas Gage was readying himself for a virtual audition in typical 2020 fashion when he heard the distant director slagging off his flat.

In a recording of the Zoom, the 25-year-old Euphoria actor can be seen staring into the camera as the anonymous director says: "These poor people live in these tiny apartments. Like I'm looking at his background, and he's got his TV and you know..."

At this point, Lukas interjects with a grimace and an awkward smile: "Yeah, unmuted."

He continues: "I know, it's a s***ty apartment. That's why [you should] give me this job, so I can get a better one."

The embarrassed director then replies: "Oh my god, I am so, so sorry... I'm so sorry."

Keen to play it down, and make the best of a bad situation, Lukas responds: "Listen, I'm living in a four-by-four box. It's fine, just give me the job, and we'll be fine."

The director can be heard saying he's 'mortified' and Lukas laughs as the video draws to a close.

Not a great deal more is known about the audition, the project or the director, but it seems likely Gage didn't get the part - given he shared the above clip on social media.

On Twitter, he captioned the video: "psa if youre a s*** talking director make sure to mute ur s*** on zoom mtgings [sic]."

The video has been watched three million times since he posted it yesterday (Friday), and he has received an outpouring of support.

Judd Apatow - director of The 40-Year-Old Virgin (2005), Knocked Up (2007) and Funny People (2009) - retweeted the clip with the caption: "As a young man I would have dreamed of an apartment like this one. Look at that sweet flat screen! The guitar! The moldings!"


Actor Zelda Williams - daughter of the late Robin Williams - also urged directors to hire him.

She said: "Since @lukasgage is going viral on film twitter for being the graceful, quick-thinking sweetheart he is, I'd like to add for any (non-a**hole) directors looking that he's also a delight to work with, funny, talented and a blast on set. Hire this man!"

Well, it looks like Lukas might have dodged a bullet here, while also opening up lots of other doors.
