Actor and acting coach Peter Feeney's put some useful tricks of his trade into a new book, from handling auditions and rejection, to producing emotion on demand - even tips on learning lines!
Acting And How To Survive It brings together what Peter's learnt on the job during his 25 years as a jobbing actor and teacher at the Actors Lab Studio in Auckland.
His credits include his touring one man show A Night with Beau Tyler, his stage adaptation of Milo's Wake, films including Black Sheep and Vermillion, and TV shows like Brokenwood Mysteries and Shortland Street.
As it happened, he's on an unexpected break in filming Brokenwood Mysteries because of the Covid-19 restrictions in Auckland. Lynn Freeman asked Peter to compare acting on stage to screen work.
