I'm working on lines for two films shooting in a few days! Let you know how it goes on the next edition.
"A lot of people dream. And while they are busy dreaming, the really happy people, the really successful people, the really interesting, powerful,engaged people? Are busy doing." - Shonda Rhimes
Another belated vlog, filming, getting ready for more filming:
"I always think you should be totally frivolous as much as you can, and then take the work seriously when it has to be taken seriously. As long as you can keep that balance going, it's good fun. If it's only frivolous it's not fun - it would drive me potty. On Iris, I'd never worked with Judi Dench before, but it was wonderful to realize that we worked in exactly the same way. Foolish for most of the time, then focusing on the work, clicking into it very quickly and naturally. There were a lot of laughs. Otherwise it could have been torture. Two months of being grueled." - Jim Broadbent
Shooting scenes with friends, rehearsals for more scenes, and podcast fun with Tim:
As an actor ... at some point you've got to forget that the crew's there in order to do your job.
Getting ready for a film shoot and three rehearsals:
"In order for me to have fun, I have to be able to not be buttoned down." - Margo Martindale
Another belated vlog post, fun podcasting with Tim, and preparing to shoot two scenes in the next three days:
"For me, the most interesting thing is longevity and sustaining a career, because that's what's truly difficult." - John Cho
A balated blog post, an audition, and a much needed haircut:
"Ask the right questions if you're to find the right answers." - Vanessa Redgrave
I'm getting ready for a new show!
I haven't gotten to play someone quite like this character before, so I've had fun finding her in rehearsals. It will be 1opm at the Producer's Club on 12 and 13 July. Here's a link for tickets:
"I like to do something I fear. I like to set up obstacles and defeat them. I like to be afraid of the project. I always am. When I get cast in something, I always believe I shouldn't have been cast. I fooled them again. I can't do it. I don't know how to do it. There's a huge amount of anxiety that drowns out any excitement I have toward the project." - Heath Ledger
Podcasting, rehearsing for a show, and four new scenes to prepare:
"The first time I acted was in high school in Florida, and when I heard that applause I felt so alive and felt that electricity go up my spine." - Angela Bassett
A potentially broken toe and another booking:
"We have the ugliest outfit in the world on--which some of us try to make cute--but you really have to look at the person and who they are and define their beauty. And people have fallen in love with every one of the characters, from transgender woman to Big Boo to Taystee." - Danielle Brooks
"You know, this business is pure luck. It truly is. There is a tangible amount of luck that is necessary for a successful career, and the only way that luck happens is if you're prepared for it and you stick with it. If you drop out of the scene, your opportunity for luck diminishes greatly. No one's going to say, "Hey you're an insurance salesman. Come and do this movie."
- Bryan Cranston
