Actor’s Reading List

18 Feb

It never hurts to expand the mind with some good ‘ol fashioned reading. It also never hurts to improve your acting and career in more ways than one. (Like, seeing plays and not just acting in them or attending art galleries or creating your own artwork, writing or reading!)

Here are some books directly and indirectly related to acting that are worth looking into. Some are inspiring, some are informative, some are just plain entertaining and some are all of the above! (like Steve Martin’s memoir)

The Artist’s Way by Julia Camron

Respect for Acting by Uta Hagen

The Art Spirit by Henri

The Power of the Actor by Ivana Chubbuck

Born Standing Up by Steve Martin

The Actor Takes a Meeting by Stephen Book

The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch

Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert M. Pirsig
