Harriet Walter's wonderfully practical – and personal – introduction to acting.
“Acting is what I do with who I am”, writes Harriet Walter. And in this book she takes us step by step through the processes involved in performance. Each step of the way is illuminated with brilliantly precise examples drawn from her own experience.
