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.

AN ACTRESS PREPARES: The F Word

by Tiffany Denise Hobbs

Hey Statera! In this episode, I get real personal and talk about "failure" and how it has affected me as a performing artist. And I also talk about one of my favorite quotes: “Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of equal or greater benefit.” - Napoleon Hill

Introduction: An Actress Prepares

by Tiffany Denise Hobbs

Hello Statera! Many people have been asking me about my career - the why’s, the how’s, the if’s, etc. So I decided to create a vlog in which I share my process and the intimate details on how I do what I do. And I love what I do! I enjoy helping others and I’m excited to share my understanding of working in this business. Don’t mistake this for an attempt at a perfect guide - it’s just imperfect ol’ me sharing my personal journey (the good, the bad and the ugly) and what little nuggets of insight and inspiration I have gathered along the way. If you are in any way curious about an actor’s life, this is for you.

Tiffany will be back next Wednesday to talk about “why theatre”. She’ll also share about how she first approaches a role. But if you want more, feel free to binge watch “An Actress Prepares” on Tiffany’s YouTube channel. You can also find her on Instagram.
