こんにちは。Hello

私はロサンゼルスでコーチと著者の演技、女優です。私が原因で私のコーチングのクライアントとの私の経験にこの本を書いて、これらのヒント&物語を共有するために強いと感じました。

I’m an actress, acting coach and author in Los Angeles.

I felt compelled to write this book and share these tips & stories due to my experiences with my coaching clients.

ほとんどの演技学校&劇場プログラムは演技の工芸を教え、彼らは演技の「ビジネス」をカバーしていません。私が始めたとき、私はこの本を持っていたいです!

Most acting schools & theatre programs teach the craft of acting, but they do not cover the “business” of acting. I wish I had this book when I was starting out!

Happy Friday everyone!

I hope everyone had a fantastic week. I am happy to share a new book review with you.

As always if you’re interested in reading my book and would like to see the reviews first, you can take a look on Amazon, GoodReads and my facebook page (below).

Reviews are a special insight into the mind of the reader and I’m always amazed how much I learn from their perspective. Things I didn’t see myself.

If any current working actors or aspiring actors ever have a question, please feel free to post it to my blog.  I will respond.

As a friendly reminder, I am an actor  however I am also an Acting Coach and Career Coach for actors & performers.

The book subjects and subject matter are inspired by my own personal experiences and those of my coaching clients. And believe it or not, no matter how long I have worked with some of them, questions always arise. And sometimes it’s the same question recycled. 🙂   And that’s okay too.

Anyone in this business must wear many hats. It’s truly a necessity. And luckily for me I am never bored or have an abundance of free time. I’m always busy. There are always things to do for myself or for my career. And I talk about that in the book in terms of Keeping Yourselves Busy.

This week was a mix of everything. The yin and yang of life that I discuss in a previous blog which included 2 VO self-tape auditions submitted. Yay!

Last week I had a self-tape audition  and one the week before that.

I’m in Houston focusing on my next book on a writing hiatus, however, I am first and foremost an actor. I never stop. At the same time, I am in daily communication with my coaching clients.

And I wouldn’t have it any other way. I am thankful that I was able to take this time to focus on my writing and when I return to LA ASAP, my plan is to never put my own personal goals to the side while I help others.

I will do my best to take care of others while not forgetting myself and my own personal and professional goals.

I am so looking forward to my return. And at the same time, this time has been invaluable and I am very fortunate and grateful.

Please take a look at my book reviews & take a look at my book.  I think you will enjoy the journey.

Fame versus Career

Vivien

Hello everyone!

Today will be a quick little blog and note.

In this day & age of reality TV, it’s difficult to find actors who truly want to ACT.

There are 1000s (probably closer to millions) that seek out fame, red carpets and awards season swag.

But what is their end game?

I realize it’s a bit confusing to new and aspiring actors because we’re also now told that Social Media is as important as talent.

I have seen casting breakdowns where they bluntly say, do not even think of submitting unless you have a million followers.

True.

You still need to do the work and the study.

It simply adds another layer to your “To Do List”. That’s all.

So hang in there. Do the work, study, have your professional tools (headshots, resume & reel) good-to-go and produce your own content, when/if you’re able to.

Please never forget this is a business.

However…

Seek out and focus on longevity and a career, not fame.

Break A Leg!

VictimHood & Outrage

MerylStreepMOVIE

Did everyone hear or see all the fuss and buzz about Meryl Streep’s new movie and the campaign they did with the  alleged “offensive” t-shirts?

She is starring as Emmeline Pankhurst in “Suffragette” which is based on the early feminist movement.

First, I love Meryl Streep. Love her. Worship at the altar of Meryl and her talent.

Was it a poor choice to wear those t-shirts which compared women’s suffrage to slavery?

Would it have been better received if the quotation on the shirt was actually in quotes?

Who knows?

They are quoting a woman who in fact said those words within the realm and plight of women’s suffrage.

It’s part of our history.

People are saying that they should not be comparing women’s suffrage to slavery and on and on and freaking on.

Okay I may ruffle some feathers with what I’m about to say, but I’m going to say it.

Can everyone please STOP with the victimhood and false outrage?

This whole Victim Competition is really on my last nerve.

No, I am more oppressed. No, you’re not more oppressed than I am!!

It’s like a schoolyard argument between 3rd graders.

Why can’t they both be right and both tell their stories? Why does it have to be one or the other?

And let’s be real shall we. It’s not a coincidence that everyone is suddenly talking about gender inequality while the shadiest woman on the planet is running for president.

Those same individuals do not care about her credentials, experience, track record or her own War on Women. Especially when those women were involved with her husband. They don’t care that she never paid the women on her  Senate staff the same as the men.

They don’t care that the Clinton Foundation readily took boatloads of money from nations who enslave women.

An Inconvenient Truth?

They are not concerned with the content of that woman’s character. All they care about is her gender.

And as a woman, that is just sad to me. It’s tragic. That’s what you fought for?

And by the way, the USA (or UK in this case) does not own the concept, term or history of slavery. Far from it. Greeks, Romans, Asians, Portuguese, Persians, Irish, etc etc etc  and it’s still happening in Africa. Blacks owning blacks. Just as blacks owned other blacks in the USA.

In 2015 when slavery still exists in other countries and women are sex slaves, raped, crucified and beheaded in other countries…can we please keep it all in perspective?

I’m Assyrian. A Christian from the Middle-East. Some family members believe we have some Armenian and some Lebanese…it depends on who you speak to and I swear to you it has changed in my lifetime. And you can’t exactly get a lot of info from http://www.ancestry.com, M-K?

We are Christians from the Middle-East. And they’re being slaughtered. And no one wants to talk about it and I am not going there right now.

Speaking of going there, let me say, I’ve never been to the Middle-East. And it’s sad that I have never had an inclination to go in my lifetime. Why would I? I’m an outspoken woman and a Christian so I’m quite confident I would never make it out alive. My mother thanks god every day that her parents had the foresight to get her out of there. Who knows what would have happened to my mother and her family if they had stayed.

I’m not bringing that up to join in on the victim bandwagon and throw down a trump card. I just think they all sound ridiculous. On the daily.

I have no problem with historical films.  I’m an actor, a writer and a movie fan to my core. I want to see ALL of it!

But this sophomoric and petty crap has worn out its welcome.

These outrage competitions sound like a bunch of unappreciative petulant children.

Lets tell those stories of our past with passion and also understanding & appreciation of how far we have come!!

The irony to me is that the individuals fighting one another about this are the SAME ones who love to ban words and phrases and subjects because it’s deemed politically incorrect. They regularly ban certain phrases and words because someone might be offended.

Just like that bozo that told me I had to change my book cover, because it offended HIM.

Do you think that bozo who feigned outrage at my cover protests the treatment of homosexuals by Islam?

They’re concerned with a phrase, label or word but they do not seem concerned with facts.

You can’t say this, you can’t say that.

That’s the funny thing about Free Speech.

Once you start abandoning it, when does it stop? Sure, let’s not learn from history AT ALL.

Let’s start with the banning of words and phrases. And then we will ban books that we don’t agree with. And then we will be BURNING those books.

Sound familiar?

We’re supposed to learn from history and learn from past mistakes. But I am sorry to say we’re regressing and going backwards.

I don’t believe in coincidences. The marketing team for this film probably knew they would turn some heads with those t-shirts.

And we all took the bait.

At the same time, I said it before and I’ll say it again…this was a quote from one of the leaders of the women’s suffrage moment in the UK. She said it.

And I do not believe in censorship.
