    Actor On The Greatest Stage Of All, The Stage Of Real Life

    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...

    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.

    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!
