The 'Hamilton' Cast Shares Top Acting Tips That Apply To Voice Acting, Too! | Backstage

"Three of "Hamilton's" cast members offer actors their best advice in the wake of their 2016 Tony Award nominations! Leslie Odom Jr. (Aaron Burr), Jonathan Groff (King George III), and Christopher Jackson (George Washington) share their advice on auditions, vocal care, and not throwing away your shot!"


While their advice specifically pertains to theatre, 90% applies to voiceover as well. Those of you who work on long-form projects which require stamina, focus and commitment over weeks, months, and sometimes even years (audiobooks, e-learning modules, text-to-speech data bases) will find their insights particularly relevant in that they address your same challenges of sustaining a high level of performance and maintaining good vocal quality over time.

Some very wise advice every actor should heed, from Chicago-based actor/coach, Wendy Braun.

Pay particular attention to # 4: "STOP COMPARING."The author is absolutely right about this being "actor death" I've seen far too many talented actors on the edge of succeeding, blow themselves up because they were unable to let this one go...

Wendy Braun: "A lot of actors...love to blame their agents, casting directors, traffic, and even celebrities for the lack of work/auditions that are coming their way. It’s definitely the easy way out, but it also makes you the victim of your circumstances and makes you feel powerless...The problem is, it perpetuates negativity. You convince yourself you can’t move forward and then gather more evidence from other actors. All this blaming and complaining just makes it easy to stay stuck and helpless."
