Lindsay Lohan’s earliest big break marked the only time she had to audition for a project as a child star. Lohan stopped by “The Drew Barrymore Show” in November 2022 and revisited the process of getting her first movie role. “‘Parent Trap’ was a lot of screen tests,” Lohan said. “I went back. I auditioned once. Then I got a callback again. Then I got a third callback.”
In 2019, Lohan spoke to Variety about this experience, stating, “I only auditioned for ‘The Parent Trap.'” The performer went on to detail her fear of trying out for films. “I would be terrified to audition,” Lohan said. “I don’t even know what it would be like. I think I would freeze.”
Despite this fear, Lohan impressed during her tryout and won her dual “Parent Trap” parts over other talented actors like Michelle Trachtenberg, Mara Wilson, Scarlett Johansson, and Jena Malone, as BuzzFeed reported. In a 2020 “Parent Trap” reunion, per Insider, costar Dennis Quaid stated that Lohan’s British “accent was so perfect” at the audition that he “actually thought there were two girls” testing for the character. Recently, Lohan has returned to acting and showcased her talent in a leading movie role.
