    WEDNESDAY WISDOM: Are You "Behind"? — with Alyshia Ochse

    When comparing yourself to other actors do you put yourself in the category of falling "behind"? Today, I address the feeling of negative narrative comparisons and how we can collectively not only stay in our own lanes but also celebrate your own path.

    S2 029: Scoot McNairy — Lessons Over Time (Quiet Place 2, Blonde, Love Life, Narcos: Mexico, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, True Detective Godless, Halt and Catch Fire, War Machine, Fargo...)

    S2 029: Scoot McNairy — Lessons Over Time (Quiet Place 2, Blonde, Love Life, Narcos: Mexico, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, True Detective Godless, Halt and Catch Fire, War Machine, Fargo...)

    In today’s episode we’re chatting with Scoot McNairy. Here’s a storyteller who’s genuinely humble and genuinely extraordinary. He’s an award winning actor and a producer. He’s worked on numerous award-winning films such as “Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood,” “Gone Girl,” “12 Years a Slave,” “Argo,” and “Killing Them Softly.” He’s starred in critically acclaimed series such as “Narcos: Mexico,” “Godless,” and “Halt and Catch Fire.” The list of legendary directors he’s worked with will blow your mind. Steve McQueen, Quentin Tarantino, and Gus Van Sant to name a few.
    Scoot’s own story begins in Texas as a kid who was fascinated by how movies were made. Dozens of commercials, TV shows, independent projects, and major studio films later, his fascination for the process of filmmaking has only deepened. But he’s also someone who admits there are things he loves doing just as much as acting and there are times when he’s left the industry to explore them.
    He’s candid about the working relationships and friendships that have impacted his career. You’ll hear what Academy Award, Golden Globe, and Emmy winning actor has inspired him the most. And you’ll see how everyone’s process coming to the craft is unique—it’s important to build your own bag of tricks.

    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.
