As a professional actor, I can't even begin to list all the books that I've bought over the years in the hopes that I would be given some sort of magical advice that would help me land that national commercial or lead in the latest film by that legendary Hollywood director.
After reading Jen Rudin's book, which is filled with extremely practical, relevant and personal advice, I feel the most confident and inspired to go out and enjoy the process of auditioning...regardless of whether or not I book the job or not.
Jen's book, in addition to enlightening me to the truth that auditioning can be an end in itself rather than a means to an end, is written in such a way that made the very act of reading 'Confessions' a joy in of itself.
It is indeed, the perfect gift.
