‘The Nevers’ Star Ann Skelly on Nailing Live Energy in Self-Tapes

“On self-tapes
With self-tapes, it can feel like I lose the stakes and electricity of being on a set or at a real in-person audition. I’ve learned that I prefer to work under pressure, so there’s a luxury in self-taping that drives me absolutely batsh*t. I think my fault there has mostly been looking for a perfect take, which doesn’t exist, and that goal takes away anything interesting in a scene, anyway.

“Prepping well beforehand and doing as few takes as possible keeps tapes from becoming stale, and helps keep your mind intact.”

What’s recently helped is using the embarrassment that comes with auditioning. Whether the reader, the character, or accent makes you feel that scary vulnerability, it’s been quite nice to throw away any preconceived notion of what it should be. I’m the person that’d do tons of takes and they’d all be the same, and then have to make an appointment with a therapist afterwards. But I’ve sent off first takes since, which makes me feel like this advice works if you see yourself as being a similar kind of actor. Prepping well beforehand and doing as few takes as possible keeps tapes from becoming stale, and helps keep your mind intact.”

Art LaFleur Dies: 'Sandlot,' 'Field Of Dreams,' 'Santa Clause' Actor Was 78 — Deadline

This was one of the guys I always loved. Loved seeing him in anything/everything. Of course I didn’t know I was going to end up being one of those character actors myself. Cheers, Art.

Art LaFleur Dies: 'Sandlot,' 'Field Of Dreams,' 'Santa Clause' Actor Was 78 — Deadline Art LaFleur, the actor who was best known for playing Babe Ruth in The Sandlot, has died after a 10-year battle with A-typical Parkinson’s, according to his wife Shelley.

Column: Ted Sarandos' Netflix memo on Dave Chappelle is a masterwork of gaslighting 10/13/2021

Column: Ted Sarandos' Netflix memo on Dave Chappelle is a masterwork of gaslighting

So here’s my question to Mr. Chappelle and Mr. Sarandos: It it were racist anti-African-American humor, or anti-Greek or anti-Semitic would you be singing the same tune? Damn straight you wouldn’t!

And if you were at the Bowl last week and laughed at those “jokes”, you need to look into your own heart.

Column: Ted Sarandos' Netflix memo on Dave Chappelle is a masterwork of gaslighting Instead of using 'creative freedom' to justify Chappelle's special, Netflix should just say what it means: Inclusion is great but money is better.

Anthony Hopkins Remembers It All

“Just keep it as simple as you can. But if you have to do Stanislavski on it, if you have to do Lee Strasberg, fine. There’s nothing wrong with that.” I was trained in that way myself, in Method. As the years have gone by, I’ve incorporated into my skill set a fast means of doing it. That is, to keep it simple, keep it relaxed, and know the text.

Anthony Hopkins Remembers It All At eighty-three, the actor says, performing is easier than it’s ever been. Every role slips into the story of life.
