hi, I have received a callback for Lumiere in Beauty and the Beast. I just want to know if there is a study guide for this character development. Also how do you all prepare for callbacks?

If you have't done so already, get some dialect tapes and brush up on your French accent. It's practically a requirement for this role.

Rent the movie "Gigi" and learn from Maurice Chevalier, a famous French actor, on whom the character was based. He is very suave and charming, with a perpetual glint in his eye, like he knows how suave and charming he is.
