Abstract:

"Few actors are more eloquent, honest, or entertaining about their life and their profession than Simon Callow. Being an Actor traces his stage journey from the letter he wrote to Laurence Olivier that led to his first job to his triumph as Mozart in the original production of Amadeus. This new edition continues to tell the story of his past two decades onstage. Callow discusses his occasionally ambivalent yet always passionate feelings about both film and theater, conflicting sentiments partially resolved by his acclaimed return to the stage with his solo performance in The Importance of Being Oscar and The Mystery of Charles Dickens, seen in the West End and on Broadway in 2002. Being an Actor is a guide not only to the profession but also to the intricacies of the art, told with wit, candor, and irrepressible verve by one of the great figures of the stage."--BOOK JACKET.
