This podcast has truly made me feel like I’m not alone. The raw and real stories that Sam tells, and allows her guests to tell, just really make me breathe a sigh of relief and also remind me of why I do this crazy thing!! So thanks for the hug and the reminder, Sam. Keep going.

If you’re not listening you’re missing out!!

As a former guest this may seem biased, BUT I can say without a doubt that Sam creates the perfect environment for her guests to GET REAL and dish the honest advice actors are aching to hear. And they don’t settle for fluff, it’s actionable, real life stuff... basically what I’m trying to say is: when you listen you’ll learn (and laugh!) and it will not be a waste of time. So subscribe now and start your education. Grad school for professional actors! Beyond that Sam has a huge heart and is one of the most generous people in the business.

Rank #13: 3.6- Amanda Payton

Podcast cover
Read more
Today I am joined by long time fan of the show (blushing) Amanda Payton! She opens up and gets really real with us about her transition from Carnegie Mellon to professional acting in LA (hint: it did not go as expected) and how the first few years were marked with moments of unrest, indecisiveness and…waiting. Amanda shares how she went from her bartending-networking to real nose-to-the-grindstone work of her own, setting up her own email systems to get attention before showcases, how that led her to meetings, and how her confidence from this process got her the best manager she could have asked for.

Along the way she also shares how she dealt with the down side of this business: being dropped by managers, being told she was too old with too few credits, and losing days on sets due to script rewrites. As well as the up-sides: the best advice she was ever given, how she studied herself and her own personality to move from co to guest star, how stopping partying and starting working saved her from her self, and how a one line costar audition shaped her current career trajectory.

Let's put this free time in to use. We don't have a "big epic plan" this season, but we do have a lot of amazing humans with the time to chat. And we sure do have a lot to chat about. This season we're going to cover the standards: day to day life in and around the business, what you know and want to share, how you got to where you are. But we're also going to talk a lot about what we're doing now and to prepare for the future of whatever this Covid-19 world throws at us. LOVE YOU ALL (please review this podcast).

Jenna Doolittle is not only a hard working actress with a heart of gold (check her IMDB credits to see how often that sweet woman plays a nurse) but she is also the one and only person currently behind the Actor Quarantine Newsletter. Let's hear from the QT Queen herself on how she is got to this point in her career, how she is currently fueling her days, and why it's ok to not do everything...even when we have the time to do so.
