    Run Away With Me O' Muse!

    Oh yes, baby, yes! I love acting! I haven't been active for a few years but I am currently picking a few monologues to get back in to the fray. I've been searching auditions locally (scant they are) and also looking for work out of state. LA and NY ads anyone? In all honesty...

    Ambitious Actor No Roles

    I have been a long time actor through my life.  I have acted pretty much every day of my life since I can remember, just doing different improvisations in my daily routines, changing my voice doing imitations, re-enacting parts from movies or plays.  In high school...

    I Am Marlowe

    Acting is getting away from home without really going too far... It's an outlet for me. I've been ranked one of the top stage actors in my province. It's good, considering I'm not that old and haven't been acting all too long. I've played large parts in theatre plays, and small...

    Stanislavsky's Words

    "The person you are is a thousand times more interesting than the best actor you could ever hope to be." The problem with these words, when taken out of context, is that they lose the capacity to surprise. You have to see them in terms of Stanislavski's entire methodology for...

    A couple of months ago I was selected to join a

    talent agency for my acting! I was overwhelmed with excitement. I am lucky enough to have my family and friends supporting me 100%! I have yet to land the role of a lifetime and catch my "big break" but I know it is out there and it will come to me when I am ready!

    I guess it's only part time

    but I don't rely on it to make a living so I can be a bit more relaxed about it and not stress when I don't get a part. It's a challenging and enjoyable experience.
