Occasionally there is immediate need for a certain look or ability on the set and if you are in the right place at the right time you will get a SAG-AFTRA voucher. Sporadically a casting director will offer you a SAG-AFTRA voucher if they are unable to locate a SAG-AFTRA member that fits the requirements of the production company.

It could be that you waited too long to call back or that the director is away from their desk. The best thing that you can do is to try back later. Do not call the emergency number and do not ask ďDo you know the call time?Ē
