Hi, I'm Athena Reich I'm an actress and musician and performance coach here in New York City and we're just blocks away right now from Times Square, the home of Broadway. In this clip I'm going to talk about how to act professionally. If you aspire to be a professional actress on Broadway in TV, movies, commercials. It's really important to learn how to do it in a way that you can gain respect from your peers, casting directors and directors and the critics. One of the key things about acting is that it has to be real and it has to come from an inner place. Putting on a character from an external place saying, well I'm sad and I think when I'm sad I go like this. Is false more like going internally and thinking what makes me sad and then thinking about something that's really sad. Then I am sad in my own unique way. That Athena, that I am sad and when you're more sad from a inner true place, than it is more unique and therefore it looks more authentic and you're not just putting on the typical stereotypical sad. So if you really want to learn how to act professionally and be able to compete on Broadway it's important. That you learn how to think internally and one of the best ways to do that is to take classes with reputable coaches who've been on Broadway. You know to take private acting lessons and group classes. So it's just really important I can't emphasize enough. How important it is to work from an internal place. Make it real and true and authentic. This has been Athena Reich on how to act professionally.
