Beverly Leech – Actor Muscle

Beverly Leech Interview

“When I was teaching, [the studios] were spending all of their time developing these really great actors who spent thousands of dollars on their training and after graduating I would get hundreds of phone calls all saying, ‘Now what? I’ve got all this training and I have no idea how to even get an agent.'”I had the chance to sit down with Beverly Leech, author of “Actor Muscle: Craft, Grit and Wit- A professional guide to the business of acting”.  We talked a lot about actors and translating the training they receive into a career through preparation, professionalism, and patience.”Acting is one long decision. It’s not one big decision. So take the pressure off of yourself that if you don’t make it in six months or a year, you’ve failed. I’m a lifer. I love what I do. I love love love what I do.”Beverly is a fantastic actress, a wonderful teacher and a pleasure to chat with.  She gives a lot of advice on preparing for auditions as well as getting representation that will best serve you. I hope you enjoy this interview as much as I did.

SO, this blog is dedicated to getting you more dates, or rather auditions. We leave your actual dating life up to you.

  1. Beverly, I really enjoyed your discussion and found it very practical! I started acting more than 30 years ago and recently re-entered with a whole new understanding of the mechanics of the business. Now that I am older, my emotional commitment to roles are so much more rewarding.
