Paul Elsam

Published by Methuen

Acting Characters is an introductory handbook for the aspiring actor, compiled of twenty steps grouped into six sections to help create, present and sustain a believable character

Fundamentally practical, the book avoids the heavy discussion of theory that often accompanies books on the subject, looking instead at the essentials of how to use different voices and body language to convey character

'Non-academic, highly practical and very effective ... A real delight' ~ UK Theatre Web

'Technical and refreshingly non-academic ... Clear and helpful pathways to guide the student actor' ~ Sir Alan Ayckbourn

'This book offers graspable steps ... to equip the actor with the technical tools necessary to be seen and heard in our crowded arena' ~ Sir Ben Kingsley
