The Acting Bible: The Complete Resource for Aspiring Actors

  • Review
  • TAG : Acting Books | The Acting Corps Blog
  • Hopefully, this list of acting books provides you with a good start on your actors self-study. After more than two decades of reading training books for actors, these are what I consider the best books for actors. But of course, as Stanislavski said, "Create your own method. Don't depend slavishly on mine. Make up something that will work for you! But keep breaking traditions, I beg you."

    The second book in Stanislavski's series of acting books focuses on building strong, defined, believable characters. Originally intended to be included in his first book, An Actor Prepares, the contents of Building a Character were removed and made into a second book. While the first book aims to teach tools on using your inner imagination, Building a Character helps actors actualize those internalisations. A must for your acting book collection.

  • Actors sometimes struggle to summon the motivation to read acting books as they tend not to be the most riveting of reads. However, I would recommend reading as many of these acting books as you can bear as they are all fantastic and very useful. They each offer differing ideas and approaches to acting; some are practical and some more theoretical. If you are able to read a few of these acting books, your approach to acting would change drastically. As you have probably experienced with acting, sometimes one small insight can change the way you act. To get a hold of any of these books click on the Book Depository link below the list.

    This is a list of what we think are the best acting books out there. Of course acting books are very subjective. Sometimes you can read one and get very little out of it whilst someone else can read the same acting book and have their perspective of acting changed forever.

Look, no one wants to see proper acting technique. In the same way you don’t want someone making love to you correctly and by the book, you don’t want to see someone fighting through the most significant moments of her life in a matter which is consistent with some formulaic definition of great acting according to some acting books– I‘m just sayin’.
