Summary

Summary

Encorporating interviews with four professional actors, this book charts their careers, showing how they started in acting, their first breaks, and the rewards, triumphs and disasters of an actor's life. Austin Pendleton, Gloria Foster, Lois Smith and Ron Rifkin tell how they learned their craft, found their agents, battled rejection, rebounded from artistic and personal catastrophes, and redefined themselves as actors at critical points in their careers.
