The first book from the leading instructor to the stars, whose client roster includes Brad Pitt, Jim Carrey, Kate Hudson, David Duchovny, and Halle Berry (for an Oscar-winning performance in Monster's Ball), The Power of the Actor gives every reader directions to excellence. Previous generations of actors were steeped in the teaching traditions of Stanislavski, Strasberg, and Hagen, which focused on feelings. For many of today's hottest talents, the Chubbuck Technique is the first choice--the new acting technique for the twenty-first century. Taking the theories of those traditional masters into a new realm of psychological and behavioral study, industry veteran Ivana Chubbuck has developed a curriculum that guides students to the heart of a character by finding out what the character wants more than anything else and the behaviors they will use to get it. Filled with fascinating behind-the-scenes accounts of how countless celebrities mastered their craft, The Power of the Actor offers a trove of tidbits for fans as well.
