Tips from a Talent Agent is an incredibly informative and entertaining step-by-step guide that walks you through all the aspects of show business. It takes you through the collective knowledge necessary to ensure that, if applied correctly, your career as an actor is armed with solid, insider advice, and professionalism. Whether you’re a novice to the business or even the most seasoned of actors, you need to make this literary treasure your new actor’s bible.
Being an actor in the business of show often feels like trying to navigate through a Wild West-like terrain where there are ambiguous rules, if any, and is seemingly every one for himself or herself. To counter the vortex that so many actors fall into, Rebecca Hale has brilliantly distilled her over 50 years of experience as an actor, director, and talent agent into a modern-day treatise on how to be a professional actor.
This is a concise and thorough book that is a must read for every actor or parent of a child actor.
