Harriet Walter

Published by Nick Hern Books

This is Harriet Walter's wonderfully practical - and personal - introduction to acting

"Acting is what I do with who I am", writes Harriet Walter

And in this book she takes us step by step through the processes involved in performance

Each step of the way is illuminated with brilliantly precise examples drawn from her own experience

"My advice to a young actor - read this book" ~ Richard Eyre

"Buy it, and be delightfully and unhectoringly informed about exactly what it is that actors get up to and why ... Harriet Walter is sharp, clear, elegant, sturdily sensitive" ~ Observer

"A fascinating insight into the working life of an actor ... very enjoyable" ~ The Times

Harriet Walter trained at LAMDA and started with fringe groups such as Joint Stock before moving on to the Royal Court, the RSC and the National

On TV she is best-known as Amy in the sitcom Unfinished Business and as Harriet Vane in the Lord Peter Wimsey series. Films include Ang Lee's Sense and Sensibility and Louis Malle's Milou in Mai

She draws on all of these in the book
