Comedian Naomi Snieckus agrees. "For a role like this, thousands of people would have been considered," she says. "It's a huge lottery." Snieckus is a Second City alumna and one of Canada's most gifted improv comics. She also co-produces The Casting Room, a lighthearted Web series on the ins and outs of auditioning.
