"Acting is mostly unrewarding financially, an acting career is often short-lived, and the field is incredibly competitive. What fuels the desire to act? What is it that drives actors to withstand the frustration of not getting parts, of getting bad parts, and of being mistreated by directors, misunderstood by audiences, and misinterpreted by critics?" "With a nod to The Paris Review's Writers at Work model, Actor's at Work looks at the ways in which some of our most respected stage and film actors approach their calling. Rosemarie Tichler and Barry Jay Kaplan explore these performers' influences, their idols and insecurities, their paths to work and success, the uses of training, and the art of acting itself."--BOOK JACKET.
