Professional acting is both an art and a business, and this book advises beginning actors on how to cope successfully on both fronts.

* Developing the actor's voice, imitating regional accents, and more
* Expressing the character's thoughts and ideas through body posture and movement
* Adapting acting techniques to different media: stage, film, TV, and radio

The author strips away preconceptions and clichA(c)s often associated with acting, and pinpoints common mistakes that inexperienced actors need to overcome and avoid. More than 300 instructive illustrations.
