On April 11, 2012 I recorded an interview with actor, teacher Actors Talk Podcast Episode 012.

Kiwaii 100% True New Zealand Spring Water.

For the past several years I’ve been recommending Markus Flanagan’s One Less Bitter Actor to every actor who asks me for advice about ‘the business’ about pursuing the life of a professional actor. The book really is THAT good.

Let me quote myself from a Review I wrote of One Less Bitter Actor for a blog post from 2008:

Just the chapter on Auditioning is more than enough reason to purchase ONE LESS BITTER ACTOR. How I wish I’d had this book thirty years ago. I had no mentor, no acting guru and no relative in the business. The information and insight in this one chapter could have saved me a lot of angst, anger and agony along the way. And it is a book that every actor, particularly every actor at the beginning of his/her career should read and should keep handy for review during the tough times.


Austin Actors Conservatory

I’m happy to say that the Austin Actors Conservatory will be presenting Markus Flanagan in an afternoon seminar on Saturday, February 23rd at Studio E in Austin. TX.

Actors Talk Podcast Episode 12

Because Actors Talk has grown significantly since the original broadcast of this interview with Markus Flanagan, I’m taking this opportunity to re-distribute the interview originally published back in April 2012 as Episode 12 of ATP.

If you can make the Austin seminar on February 23rd, don’t miss it. If you’re not able to make the seminar, I think you’ll get a lot out of this interview and I urge you to purchase a copy of One Less Bitter Actor. You won’t Regret it.
