This week's quote is courtesy of actress and acting coach Janice Lynde, author of Ten Minutes to the Audition, and comes straight from the book.
Here's Janice's advice about making adjustments during an audition (and she should know; she landed a recurring role in the final season of "Six Feet Under"!):
"One of my first acting gurus, David LeGrant, stressed that actors hear only the first ten percent of what is said before they stop listening. Thus, they focus on making only that ten percent adjustment. To hear the other ninety percent, I encourage you, once again, to breathe and physically relax. This will open up all of your listening channels, including the whispers of your ephemeral intuition and impulse, to whatever the director is asking you to do."
