LAR's FEATURED BOOK-OF-THE-MONTH

KATHLEEN TURNER ON ACTING

Conversations about Film, Television, and Theater

By KATHLEEN TURNER and DUSTIN MORROW

Few actors have had a career as dynamic as that Kathleen Turner's; success has followed her from the television screen to major blockbusters, from indie films to the theater stage. Over her forty-year career, Turner has developed an instinctual knowledge of what it takes to be a successful actor, and, in her conversations with esteemed film professor Dustin Morrow, she shares these lessons with the world.

With her iconic wit on full display, Turner dazzles readers with her shrewd insights on the craft of acting and charming anecdotes from her own storied career. Touching on each of her roles, she expounds on the lessons she’s learned and describes her journey of discovery in the world of acting.

An epic and intense one-on-one master class in acting from the best teacher imaginable, Kathleen Turner on Acting is a must for acting and directing students of every age, established actors and directors, filmmakers, theater pros, and artists of every stripe

About the Author
Kathleen Turner, acclaimed stage and film actress, made her film debut in Body Heat in 1981, propelling her to stardom and becoming one of the defining roles of her career. She continued to garner commercial and critical success with performances in Romancing the Stone (1984), The Jewel of the Nile (1985), Prizzi’s Honor (1985), Peggy Sue Got Married (1986), and The Virgin Suicides (1999). Turner has also had a long and renowned career as a stage actress with starring roles in productions such as Indiscretions, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Graduate, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, and The Year of Magical Thinking. She currently lives in New York City.

ADVANCE PRAISE FOR
"KATHLEEN TURNER ON ACTING"

"So great for actors and directors to learn from such a great actress and pro! I feel so lucky to have gotten to work with Kathleen, and am so enjoying her taking us through her work in these conversations."
- Sofia Coppola, director of The Virign Suicides and the Academy Award-winning screenwriter and director of Lost in Translation

"Kathleen Turner has turned on Hollywood with an angry attack on the eye-watering millions that studios spend on movies and A-list actors, which she describes as “immoral”. Funds should be redirected, Turner says, into improving the quality of scripts and performances, investing in writers and allowing actors rehearsal time rather than mere “read-throughs” before the shoot begins."
- Dalya Alberge,The Guardian
