I am posting this link from ReadySetAct.net because it talks about something that every actor needs to hear. It’s something that I discuss with my young actors, but really all actors should read this, no matter how old. Danielle Eskinazi did a similar article that I wanted to post to, but I haven’t been able to find it. This one came along and covers almost the exact same thing – which just goes to show how universal this information is. So read it and enjoy and if you have any thoughts don’t hesitate to mention them in the comments.
This post is by Joan Sittenfield and she wrote the book “Ready?… Set?… Act!” You can check her resume as a casting director HERE. Her IMDb hasn’t been updated for a while, but the information in the article is still 100% accurate. Here’s the post: http://readysetact.net/why-does-one-actor-get-cast-while-another-one-doesnt/
