Comments Actions: The Actors' Thesaurus

  1. Forget all of those annoying, confusing books that try to teach you how to act, this is all you need If you re serious about acting, this is a great investment to make.



  2.

  7. I think this is a nice book for actors to have It is pretty simple, but it was helpful when I was doing character development and finding objectives for a character.
