The best acting advice I ever got came from two people. The first was Dr. Rosemary Henenberg at Hendrix, who used to always tell us acting students, “Don’t make it happen, let it happen.” It applies to a happy life as well as acting.Read the whole thing here.
The other great advice came from my L.A. agent, the late Wally Hiller. I’d been out visiting L.A. to shop for agents, check out apartments and such and was about to go back to Arkansas for Christmas. I told Wally I’d be moving out there after the first of the year. He told me to enjoy my holiday and to call him if I had any questions. Then he said, “Don’t dye your hair blonde, don’t get your tits done, and, for God’s sake, honey, don’t lose that accent!” It’s been the best advice ever.
