"Working on the breath for instance can always expose and touch someone on the deepest level"  - Patsy Rodenburg
Picture
No that isn't me in the background and no I haven't joined a fan club for Les Mis or Anne Hathaway. I just saw this trailer and this photo pretty much sums up my face this week. Especially during voice classes. For some reason I cant stop crying during breath to voice exercises, its like this flood gate has opened and it wont work to try and close it. Drama school is not therapy, it just bloody feels like it sometimes. 
Patsy Rodenburg in her book The Right To Speak says this kind of thing is normal and good "working on the breath for instance can always expose and touch someone on the deepest level". 
True dat, Patsy dont lie. Luckily it is not just me experiencing this, Ive got the other 14 clowns to help me through. That reminds me I have my clown assessment this week, and acting assessment, and Dissertation proposal deadline and feedback CRITS panel oh! and my stage combat exam.  Best do some work otherwise I will have to start crying again. 

 
 
This is a link to my Spotlight page. Think of it as a catalogue of actors who are professionally trained/ in work. Casting directors, agents, producers etc can search by type for the character they are after, and their search will bring up a big ole lost of every actor who fits that type. So I would be;
WHITE
FEMALE
5'8 +
SPEAKS WELSH
etc etc

Check out mine :)
