Please read the details before putting yourself forward for roles, and please don't apply if you are busy and/or unavailable.
The details were available here:
Should you put yourself forward for anything again in future, please ensure you communicate at all times. I fully understand that you have other commitments but it is your responsibility to make this known so that you are not compromising other people. It's also not fair on other applicants (who might otherwise have had the chance) to accept an audition and fail to attend.
Please, for future, arrange this in advance so at the very least the opportunity can be given to someone else.
Regardless, I'd like to thank you for contacting us and I wish you the best of luck with your future endeavours.
This is a log of audition absences and the contextual correspondence and circumstances in which they happened.
If you give me a chance to show you what I am able to do, you can make sure that I shall achieve all my objectives as well as I have already done in the past. If you give me an opportunity to have an job interview, I shall take my suitcase and move to UK as soon as you wish.
