I'm currently stuck in that awful acting limbo where I haven't had a job for months. I'm not afraid to admit it and it definitely doesn't make me a failure. However, it really is hard to stop yourself from questioning what on earth is going on. I have had auditions and I know I've absolutely … Continue reading Acting is not a sprint, it’s a marathon.
