An Actress Prepares: The Law of Averages

by Tiffany Denise Hobbs

Hey Statera! We are in the thick of pilot season and this year. I have been fortunate to have had a couple of auditions for series regulars in upcoming television pilots. For the first of my pilot auditions, I even got a callback and found myself at ABC Casting in New York City for the very first time in my life (mark my word- it won’t be the last).

So today I want to talk about a concept that has helped enhanced my outlook on auditions: The Law of Averages. I haven’t a clue what, if anything, will come from my recent auditions, but I don’t believe any of it has been in vain. I also know that there will be more to come.

Tiffany Hobbs was born and raised in Augusta, GA. Tiffany began dancing at the age of three. In the years following, she discovered a love for theater and music that augmented her passion to be a performing artist. She has trained for over two decades at prestigious liberal and performing arts institutions (UGA, SMU, Yale) and loves every minute of imitating life onstage, on set or in a rehearsal room. A former member of the Brierley Resident Acting Company at the Dallas Theater Center and featured actress at Kenny Leon’s True Colors Theatre, some of her favorite roles include Juanita in James Baldwin's Blues for Mister Charlie, Beatrice in Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing and Tonya in August Wilson's King Hedley II.

Tiffany appeared as Shenzi in the National Tour of The Lion King for two years (2015-2017). On TV, she can be found co-starring in Donald Glover's FX hit, "Atlanta"; Netflix's "Ozark" and "The Haunting of Hill House"; the OWN Network's "Love Is ___"; CBS's "MacGyver," "Bull" and "Code Black"; and in SyFy's "Happy." In 2018, Tiffany joined the Broadway musical, Waitress, spear-headed by Sara Bareilles, Jessie Nelson and Diane Paulus.
