An Actor's Life for Me?by Tyler Butterwoth
An Actor's Life for Me?
Drawing on his own experiences as both a child and adult actor, Tyler Butterworth reveals the pains and the pleasures of a career in the theatre, and takes us through the various intricate processes of putting on a play from the actor’s perspective, from the casting session to the curtain call, and all the stops in between.
On the way, he reveals how props can let you down at crucial moments, how actors survive when out of work, and how to deal with stage nudity.
Tyler Butterworth grew up in a theatrical family and spent twenty five years as an actor working extensively in film, television, theatre and radio. He then worked as a development producer in television documentaries and was closely involved with NASA on a landmark commemorative tv series.
Now, he works as a voice actor, recording audiobooks, documentaries and voiceovers, and he produces walking audio guides to cities across Europe for private clients on whatever subject he’s commissioned to do. They’re just like the audio guides you get in art galleries and museums but they’re out on the street.
He lives in Sussex where he walks on the South Downs and the South Coast.
