I’m an over-opinionated acting coach based in Scotland. My job is to help people develop the self awareness to trust themselves and develop phenomenal self confidence for audition and performance. I was asked to speak about the biggest issues faced by my clients. The answer is frighteningly clear. It’s the one that I deal with every day.
I’m sorry to say that the biggest problem in the success of your acting career is probably you. I think you secretly know that already.
His first article was so ‘chuffing brilliant’ (Daily Mail) that I’d have been a fool not to invite him back. This time, Gary Lucy’s arse gets the once over. But in an intelligent way, that makes a point. Gary Lucy’s arse is just there to get your attention.
So, two weeks on since waking to another 5 years of the Tories, are things really as blue as they initially seemed? In my last blog post, written on polling day and anticipating a Conservative government of some kind (but not in my wildest nightmares imagining they might attain a majority), I suggested that such a result would mean more cuts and a continued move towards corporate sponsorship where the arts were concerned. But what does it look like on the other side of the election? And what can we do to ensure the best deal for the arts?
So, with election day looming, I sat down to think about what we might wake up to on Friday morning and what the next five years could consequently hold for the arts, going through each of four likely outcomes: a Conservative minority government, a Labour minority, another Lib Dem coalition, and a Labour-SNP coalition.
