Meet the Author

Eric Morris is one of the most controversial and exciting acting coaches in the history of American theater. With his unique approach to acting from a BEING place, he is revolutionizing the concept of performance.

Eric Morris began his involvement in theater at Northwestern University, where he graduated with a degree in Dramatic Arts. His acting career of over one hundred Equity plays, twenty major motion pictures, fifty network television episodes, and running roles on two syndicated TV series led him on a search for new and workable acting techniques.

His inherent passion for truth has resulted in the development of a process of work that is very specific in exploring the origins of individual talent and that encourages each actor's unique statement.

Eric Morris lives and teaches in Los Angeles but also travels regularly to New York and other cities around the country to conduct workshops. He has founded the American New Theater, a company of bi-coastal actors who have a common approach to acting and a common goal of carrying that approach into theater and film.

    TELLS YOU STRAIGHT WHAT IT TAKES...

    His other books, I believe, are better and more in depth, but this book just tells you right from the start that you MUST work daily on your instrument and your craft to become an artist, an actor. Mr. Morris gives you many tools, and inspiring, honest words, so you can create your own toolbox and daily routine to work your art. All his books are highly recommended to all actors who want to reach deep within and deep into the world to expand his or her art...
