A handbook for aspiring actors by two of the best-known names in British theatre and television.

So You Want To Be An Actor? by Timothy West and Prunella Scales offers practical advice and do’s and don’ts to anyone thinking of taking up acting. The authors are passionate about actor training, know the profession inside out and have more than a hundred years’ experience between them…

Writing alternately throughout the book – and sometimes offering radically different opinions – they cover over sixty topics including:

* Drama school
* Auditions and interviews
* Agents
* Financial Security
* Learning the lines
* Working in television/radio
* Touring
* Media attention

Charmingly informal but full of sound advice, So You Want To Be An Actor? is essential reading for anyone with their eye on a career in acting.

‘One of the most valuable books for young and aspiring actors that I have read in recent years… a book to keep with you from debut to death’
