Writer – Amy Lyndon (REEL Ladies Member)
Over the past several weeks I have been ridiculed for continuing to present to actors positive thoughts and “false hope” about working in the entertainment business given the state of affairs of SAG and the economy. It has been said by a couple of naysayers that as a teacher it is my responsibility to make sure actors know the realities of the business and that they should get a “decent job” and not have hope to build their dream of becoming a successful actor.
In my honest opinion, artists have to live in their own reality in order to create.
