Book Review – The Outstanding Actor

Drawing on Ken Rea’s 30 years’ teaching experience and research, as well as interviews with top actors and directors, The Outstanding Actor identifies seven key qualities that the most successful actors manifest, along with practical exercises that help nurture those qualities.

Featuring contributions and insights from Ewan McGregor, Jude Law, Judie Dench, Al Pacino and many more, The Outstanding Actor gives you the techniques that you can immediately put into practice in rehearsals, classes or private preparation. It also shows you how to increase the chances of having a more successful career.
