Foreword by Ellen Page, star of Inception, Juno and X-Men 'This book will replace Stanislavski's An Actor Prepares' Jeff Daniels In the most important theatrical book of this or any other decade, moderate twitter sensation @tips4actors (unrestrained by a 140-character limit) gives you all the advice you need to take your acting to the next level. How to upstage your fellow cast members; what to wear on the first day of rehearsals; and a guide to the finest places to poo in London's West End - it's all in here! Who else would come up with such transformative advice as...'Never read the script. Would your character read the script?No, of course not. For them the script doesn't exist.' or...'When having sex with a casting director,show off your acting by faking orgasm.'? The answer is no one. Because no other writer is BRAVE enough totell actors the truth.
