    WEDNESDAY WISDOM: Art of Letting Go Into Character — with Alyshia Ochse

    WEDNESDAY WISDOM: Art of Letting Go Into Character — with Alyshia Ochse

    It was a no. Then another no. Again, a no.
    Even yesterday it was a no.
    How do you let go in times of constant rejection? How do you not push for just getting the yes?
    Today, I wanted to discuss how you can "let go" of expectations of results in your art and use the pressure cooker situation to deepen your art (character).

    S2 028: Eric Ladin — The Power of Letting Go & Rolling the Dice (The Right Stuff, Generation Kill, The Killing, Boardwalk Empire, Mad Men, Big Love, The Bring, Annabelle, American Sniper, Longmire...)

    S2 028: Eric Ladin — The Power of Letting Go & Rolling the Dice (The Right Stuff, Generation Kill, The Killing, Boardwalk Empire, Mad Men, Big Love, The Bring, Annabelle, American Sniper, Longmire...)

    Today’s guest is the awe-inspiring, spectacular Eric Ladin. You might know him from The Killing, Boardwalk Empire, or Generation Kill because his moments onscreen are unforgettable. He talks about the evolution of his identity and how he learned to reconcile the way he saw himself with the way Hollywood saw him to lean into type and unleash his potential. He’s candid about the pressure he put on himself after graduating from drama school and his obsession with over-preparing. And it wasn’t until a pizza party celebrating his decision to quit acting when he finally learned to release control. He’s proof when you learn to let go, people start calling.
    He also recounts the amazing story of booking The Killing and how he had to follow his gut, turning down another opportunity, which ultimately paid off and showed him the power of trusting when to say yes or no.
    From booking nothing after 103 auditions to turning a three-episode recurring role into an HBO series regular, Eric tells it all. And even spills what it was like working with Clint Eastwood and Bradley Cooper. These are the unforgettable stories that landed Eric Ladin right here.

    S2 027: Bonnie Somerville — Finding Her Second Act (Blue Bloods, FRIENDS, Without A Paddle, Shake, Rattle and Role, Grosspoint, Golden Boy, Kitchen Confidential, Code Black, NYPD Blue...)

    I am so thrilled to welcome Bonnie Somerville into the TOA family. A Brooklyn native, Bonnie has always been strong, quick-witted, and no b******t. And this interview is no exception.
    Bonnie doesn’t pull any punches today as she talks about the brutality of our business and the ebbs and flows of her remarkable career.
    From being scouted by modeling agencies and record labels, to beating out a thousand girls at her first national casting call and her surprise audition with Marcia Gay Harden, Bonnie takes us through the competitive nature of the work, countless heartbreaks, and finally rediscovering the innate creativity that gave her the guts to pursue this dream in the first place.

    WEDNESDAY WISDOM: NO Small Parts — with Alyshia Ochse

    WEDNESDAY WISDOM: NO Small Parts — with Alyshia Ochse

    We are in control of how much space we inhabit as a character and how much gratitude we express in our art. If you are stuck in a level in your artistry this might give you a different idea about turning that frustration into productivity. Take up space with your characters mind, story and life lived.
    Today, I remind you of all the parts that started "small" but were inhabited with a life lived. And those "small" parts grew. The growth came from the attention put on specificity and creating a larger life than what is expected.

    S2 026: Brandon Scott — Tribe Vibe Mentality: The Importance of Community (Goliath, 13 Reasons Why, Dead to Me, This Is Us, Grey's Anatomy, Wreck-It Ralph, Stand Up Guys, Hello Cupid...)

    Today, we welcome actor and musician Brandon Scott to the show. Currently recurring on hit shows such as Netflix’s “13 Reasons Why”, “Dead to Me” and NBC’s “This is Us”, Brandon continues to pop up on our television screens time and time again. Today, he walks us through his journey from waiting tables in Times Square to working opposite heavy hitter actors, Al Pacino and Christopher Walken, and how, year after year, he still finds the joy in discovering and rediscovering his own individual actor “technique.”
    As a member of the IAMA Theatre Company in Los Angeles, we’ll hear Scott emphasize the importance of what he calls, “Tribe Vibe Mentality” and getting involved in a creative, supportive community for the purpose of collaboration and the beautiful opportunities that unfold as a result of being of service to your fellow artists. Today, Brandon is candidly honest about his struggles with anxiety, insecurity, and even his dislike of memorizing lines! He shares how he continues to work through these feelings and how asking the question of whether this is truly what he wants to do with his life, always allows him to connect back to his “why” and his purpose for creating.
    Today, we’ll hear everything from the ultimatum Scott set for himself if he didn’t get into Tisch School of the Arts, to his audition story for Grey’s Anatomy with noted casting director Linda Lowy, to how he uses song in his preparation to help him find those hidden moments between the lines.

Sexy Seman ,

50% and loving it.

The level of intentionally coming from a genuine caring place makes this podcast epic.

I love how you dive deep into the truthful vulnerabilities of your peers. It is informative, entertaining, and captivating.

Thank you for sharing.

It feels like the curtain of acting is being pulled aside and spiritual truths are shining though.

Game-changing podcast!

Alyshia really is the hostess with the mostest. Not only has she created incredible content, but she’s built a community of genuine connection. In this day & age, it’s rare to find free content that is actually valuable, but this podcast couldn’t be more jam packed with value, industry insight, lessons from the pro’s and help to avoid you making simple mistakes that may cost you an audition or job.

Alyshia is so generous with her knowledge & you can tell she genuinely puts her heart and soul into her interviews and providing for her listeners.

My acting career is in better shape just through listening. I feel wiser, I feel less alone but most importantly, feel so grateful I found her. She really is your very own personal ‘coach’ in your eardrums & there’s an episode in there for everyone!!!

If six stars was an option, I’d give it :)

CanadianActorFan ,

LOVE!

I LOVE this podcast. I’m an actor returning to the biz after an over 10 year hiatus and I find it so fascinating and helpful to hear other actors’ stories and journeys of success and trial and error. But what I love the most is that Alyshia is such a great interviewer. She really listens, does her homework and asks great questions. She gives her guests the room and encouragement to be open and share their super interesting stories. Thank you Alyshia!!
