a quote for voice actors, all actors, to remember


As we jockey for jobs and as we audition ad infinitum; as feel lowly when presenting in the presence of “great performers” or as a “great performer” empties a room to allow for his or her sizable ego to enter, let us always remember that a great performance lies within each of us. To wit:

“Can I just say there is no such thing as the best actress, you know? There is no such thing as the `greatest living actress.’ I am in a position where I have secret information, that I know this to be true. I am so in awe of the work of the women this year – nominated, not nominated -so proud of us girls. And everybody wins when we get parts like this.”

-Meryl Streep, Actress, Screen Actors Guild Awards January 25, 2009

Athletes compete. Actors prefer not to work that hard, I think.
