My guest on this week’s Hometown to Hollywood podcast is Chambers Stevens. Chambers is an actor, playwright, author, and award-winning acting coach in Los Angeles. He teaches workshops as well as private coaching in his Hollywood studio. Chambers also travels across the country to bring his teaching to students in many other cities.

This is SUCH a great interview—filled with amazing stories that include cameos by Roy Orbison, Ashley Judd, and Faith Hill, as well as brilliant advice for young actors and anyone looking to make their way creatively in the world. Listen for a little audition advice from the great playwright Lanford Wilson!

A few of my favorite quotes:

“It’s an exciting time to be an actor.”
“You don’t have to be a triple-threat. Don’t worry about what you CAN’T do; worry about what you’re really good at doing.”
“You’ve got to do what’s in your heart.”
“There is no better way to train than doing theatre. Read plays out loud!”

No one can promise success in this business, but you can certainly raise your odds while saving a lot of time and money. If you’re ready to get some coaching on how to break into acting for film or TV, or are already down the road but stuck, book a consultation with me on my consultation page. For not much more than the price of an hour with an acting coach, you can get peace of mind, and a detailed action plan.

Remember—the future belongs to those who believe in their dreams.
