What’s your best advice for auditions? Be brave, risk it. What I tell my students is, if you go through an audition and they say, ‘No, but thank you very much’, have the guts to say, ‘Can you tell me what you’re looking for and let me try that?’ Half the time they might not like that they’re being questioned but the other half they might say: ‘We thought you were too soft, now let’s see it more hardcore.’ If you’re going to get told no, you are going to get a no anyway.

    I enjoyed reading this. I have always enjoyed her performances, and found her to be witty and engaging in interviews. One of ‘the good ones’, undoubtedly.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    My wife and I saw Kathleen Turner perform at New York’s legendary Cafe Carlyle last month…she was mesmerizing, alternating stories about her career with classic songs from the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s…what a great talent she is!

      She is. If I’d been successful (there’s still time!), I’d like to have been her British equivalent!
