Thoughts on 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 precise examples drawn from her own career.
Harriet Walter trained at LAMDA and started with fringe groups such as joint stock before moving on to the Royal Court (Cloud Nine, Hamlet with Jonathan Pryce), the RSC (Nicholas Nickelby, Macbeth with Antony Sher) and the National (Arcadia). On TV, she is best known as Amy in Unfinished Business and Harriet Vane in the Lord Peter Wimsey Series. Her films include Ang Lee's Sense and Sensibility and Louis Malle's Milou in Mai.
