A couple of more travel days before I can get back to regular posting, but here's something shared by Alex Emanuel, a New York actor currently performing in Stew Stewart's play Family Album, along with my partner Casey Scott:
There is no way into acting; it's impossible. I knew that from the beginning. It's statistically impossible to make a living as an actor. You have to love it, and even your love for it is not going to make it happen. What is going to make it happen is luck and tenacity. I never made a living until I was 35 years old. I came out here when I was 24. But one thing I knew and recognized was that people all around me were giving up and going home. I just, quietly, never gave up.
