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
Auditions and finding out I have a much bigger family than I realized:
"Your life, your circumstances change, and you have to continue to grow as a person, and once you have means and opportunity, you have to make different choices to protect what you have."
- Mahershala Ali
An audition yesterday and one for tomorrow:
"Goals focus you, but dreams have power." - Eva Longoria
A surprise little adventure:
"All I know is that I have to act. It's a compulsion. I'm driven to it. I wouldn't say that I would die if it were taken away from me, but a large part of me would shrivel up." - Sir Patrick Stewart
Two auditions and a first read-through:
"Never, ever quit on yourself if it's something you believe in." - Uzo Aduba
Getting ready for Tim's birthday:
"I have a tremendous use for passionate statement." - Vanessa Redgrave
