With the help of an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at how she got the role, this week’s episode of E!
News’ “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” features new revelations about Celadon’s hiring process, and the behind-scenes behind-closed-doors process of getting the part.
Celadons “The Bachelor” castmates were in town to preview the episode and were eager to share their reactions to Celadonal’s casting.
Read on to find out how this role was presented to her.
“The Apprentice” alum Lauren Bacall said, “I think that it’s so easy to get cast.
I mean, I just think it’s a great show to be in.
It’s like a million dollars for the cast to work on.
There’s a lot of perks.
You’re in a small room, and you have a few hours of your life, and it’s all for you.
You get to meet people.
You don’t have to worry about getting paid for it.
It feels really great.”
She added, “That’s something that I love.
It definitely puts me at ease.”
Her fellow “Bachelorette” alum Chris Harrison, who played Cole, said, “[It] makes me feel really good.
It makes me happy.”
The actress who portrayed Cole, who’s from Texas, said the process of finding the part is incredibly similar to how the character got cast.
“It’s so simple.
I just go in, and they do a screening, and then I go back and do a little bit of makeup and I come out.
I can’t even tell you how it feels,” she said.
“I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I have to get this part.’
And then I have a couple of days of audition, and I’m like ‘Oh, my God.’
I don’t know how you’re going to tell me to do that.
I’m just like, it’s the most important thing that you’re doing right now.
It just feels like the right thing to do.”
She also shared a personal experience of casting the role.
“When I was auditioning for ‘The Bachelor,’ I didn’t think that I would get the role,” she recalled.
“There were people who were like, this is too expensive, this isn’t what I’m used to.
It was so surreal.
It wasn’t something that happened overnight.
It took a couple days to find that part.
And I’m telling you, it was the hardest part to do.
It takes time.
It has to be done.
You need to have a whole year.
So, it just takes a lot to get that part done.”
