Invaluable advice for anyone starting out in show business from those who have built up hugely successful careers over many years

Insightful and inspirational, all these interviews are published here for the first time.

Amazingly frank and hugely informative, Advice from the Players brings together a host of the UKs leading stars of stage and screen, offering
tips and advice learned from their years of experience working in the performing arts.

Covering areas such as ‘to train or not to train’, ‘getting an agent - and how to work without one’, ‘the do's and don’ts of rehearsals’, ‘acting for camera’, ‘acting for comedy’ and ‘stage fright and how to survive it’, this is an invaluable, insightful and wonderfully personal take on how to make it - and how to survive - in show business.
