ON ACTING...AND LIFE A New Look at an Old Craft

by | Read by William B. Davis

Biography & Memoir • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Listeners are treated to the pleasing voice and manner of Canadian actor, director, and writer William B. Davis, made famous as the sinister Cigarette-Smoking Man in "The X-Files." Part memoir of his professional life, part acting handbook, Davis's work offers both an engaging, never sentimental look at the knowledge he's gained and his hard-won philosophy on the essential elements needed for truthful acting. In Part I, he shares anecdotes from his first acting classes and his first acting and directing jobs, including his candid views of fellow actors, teachers, and other colleagues. In Part II, he focuses on the skills an actor can develop to make their performance resonate honestly. Listeners will enjoy this entertaining audiobook, and student actors and directors will especially appreciate Davis's wealth of wisdom.
