What´s unusual about this audiobook on acting? Jesse Vint wrote this book because he found, strangely enough, almost no books about film acting by people who have actually made a living at acting in film. Almost all are written by non-professional actors. It´s tantamount to learning from the sailor who has never been to sea, the soldier who has never been to war, or the cowboy who has never ridden a horse. In other words, they are coffee-shop geniuses. Jesse is a veteran of over 100 films and television shows. He has also produced, directed, and written full-length feature films that have played throughout the world. Quote from Oscar Nominee, David Carradine, from his book about the shooting of Quentin Tarantino´s film, Kill Bill: ´´Jesse Vint is a very cool and wise dude.´´ Jesse shows actors how to internalize. Once they listen to this audiobook, they will have a clarity about acting and what it is that they have never had before, regardless of how long they´ve studied. Jesse covers subjects such as: What makes a star Traps in acting Rehearsals The essence of script analysis: moving the information from head to heart Locating your hot buttons Strategy for stressful auditions The problem of anticipation Preparation before the director says ´´action´´ Jesse says that the writer provides the words, the director is the cinematic storyteller, and it is the actor´s job to activate his soul in a manner consistent with the character. That is what an actor gets paid for. An actor can speak with an accent, walk with a limp, or strap on a false nose, but these things mean absolutely nothing if the part is not internalized. If the actor does these things without internalizing, then that´s not acting - that´s Halloween. A movie is not everyday life - it is a compression of highly intense experiences. An actor must know the engine that´s driving him 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jesse Vint. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/104401/bk_acx0_104401_sample.mp3.

Famed and acclaimed for his starring role as Admiral Firmus Piett in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, Ken Colley, who was born in Manchester, England, in 1937, knew from a very early age that he was already an actor. It was not until he had completed his mandatory two years with the National Service in the UK, when he was based in Cyprus during the Suez Crisis, that Ken, in his mid-20s, became an Assistant Stage Manager with a weekly repertory company in Bromley, Kent, England. He stayed with them for three months after which he secured his first role in a television series called Ghost Squad. He then went on to join a group of players called ´´The Living Theatre Company´´ where he stayed for the next 18 months. Ken’s breakthrough into cinema came via Michael Crawford who, having witnessed his professional expertise as an actor, recommended that he play the featuring role of a chauffeur in Michael Winner’s film The Jokers. In The Dance of the Seven Veils, the film director, Ken Russell, had asked Ken to play the role of Hitler, but in a Chaplinesque fashion. The film was being made for television and, when completed, was only aired once because of its outrageous content. During his long acting career, which spans five decades, Ken has worked with many famous actors including Laurence Olivier and John Gielgud; he was also involved with Laurence Olivier’s National Theatre company at the Old Vic in London and the Monty Python team. Ken has appeared in countless television productions, plays, and films such as The Music Lovers, The Devils, Mahler, Lisztomania, Les Miserables, Measure for Measure, Pennies from Heaven, The Life of Brian, Firefox, Mussolini: The Untold Story, The Whistleblower, Casanova, The Rainbow, Inspector Morse, and Midsomer Murders, to name but a few.

Witty, self-effacing and painfully honest, the themes of life, death and laughter come together as Daphne Ashbrook recounts her many on- and off-screen scrapes with mortality. Packed with rich anecdotes from her career in TV, stage and film, this refreshingly candid and conversational memoir spans a childhood in a theatrical family to pulling back the curtain of Hollywood, revealing the glamour and ridiculousness of a business mired in a struggle between art and profit. Known for both her comic timing and deep emotional portrayals, Daphne has appeared in many TV and film roles including the 1996 Doctor Who movie, in which she played the role of Dr. Grace Holloway and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine as the titular character in ´Melora´. Reflecting on her life and her career, Daphne discovers the surprising patterns and hilarious absurdities that accompany being a modern-day professional actor. The result is an amusing, informative and intimate memoir. So pull up a barstool, grab a beer and lose yourself in Dead Woman Laughing. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daphne Ashbrook.
