I wanna be an actress (probably Movie Actress) however I wanted to ask my fellow actors some questions....Do you ever second guess yourself and wonder if this is really your "destiny"?...Does anyone else find it hard to "cry on cue"? Want are the top five books on acting tips, on the actor's recommended reading list (I have already read some of Stanislavsky)

never. I know this is what I was born to do and although I have had doubts about not being big, I know I can do it. Its a damn hard world, but I believe I can make it. Crying on cue really isn't hard for me. I mean when I try practicing in front of my mirror I can only get a tear or two out, but when reading the script for "My Girl" in my acting class, I was being filmed and couldn't get myself to cry at the rehearsals, but when it all came down to me having to read 2 scenes where thomas jay dies and I go to the funeral, it was easy. It was just like..a huge rush of bad memories clouding my head, then I guess it overwhelmed me and in the pressure of the moment, I started bawling and had to wait a second to try and choke back the tears to say my lines. Even after, I was still sniffling hehe. Just keep your mind focused and trust me, you can do anything you put your mind to. you just need to know where to go.

Second guessing one's self is an unfortunate trait in this business ... the thing to concentrate on is the moment, and you in that moment ... not easy ... stanislavski talks about it in An Actor Prepares. i'll have a hunt through my books for some more advice. Another great book is Uta Hagen's Respect For Acting... don't be to hard on yourself. dl
