Altovise Lawrence has opened up about auditioning bald. The media personality is living with a rare condition called alopecia. The autoimmune disorder causes hair loss.
Altovise was a guest in the latest episode of Unpacked with Relebogile Mabotja. She revealed that she has to cut her hair every now and then to hide the patches that show when she tries to grow her hair.
"I've resorted to auditioning bald. You'll make up the character. It has [worked for me] because I've put it as a disclaimer. Even before I walk into the audition room you know I have alopecia and if you stress me about it, then it's fine."
