By the time Kenan Thompson joined SNL, he had years of professional performance experience. He got his first acting job at the age of 10 in a commercial for Lee’s Famous Chicken Recipe. At age 14, Thompson landed his first film role in 1994 in D2: The Mighty Ducks, the second installment in the Mighty Ducks franchise. a number of eccentric characters.
However, when he auditioned for SNL at the age of 20, it was not an easy process and he did not achieve instant success. For several years he was told that he was too young to even try. When he finally got his chance at 25, he felt completely out of his element. “It was terrible,” he said. Vanity Fair. “I didn’t know how to get the public interested.”
Even though Thompson thought his audition was a disaster, he still got the job. Apparently, Lorne Michaels thought he was ready to join the cast of SNL. But when he got there, even his many years of experience in the entertainment industry couldn’t guarantee a perfect performance every time. Early on, he was sidelined again during an awkward moment at the dress rehearsal for a sketch called “Randy the Messenger”.
