Quote of the day!

"When a director gives you a line reading that doesn’t feel right for your character, nod and agree with him or her, then do it the way you know your character would do it. If you’re an actor, always be true to your character; if you’re not an actor, have character, and always be true to yourself... Whatever you do, wherever you go, do something real, make a real product, provide a real service, do something of value. Create something of beauty."
– Robert De Niro at Bates

Actors...yesterday's online-streamed meeting to "inform the members" about the upcoming merge of SAG/Aftra was not accessible (captioned or ASL interpreted)  I hope you send your comments of dismay to:

It didn't die, Tex.  It just seems to have fallen on deaf ears, or blind eyes.

Richard, I think all of our "disabilities" are true abilities. We just have to convince those TAB's (Temporarily Able Bodied) folks that we're equal actors!
Comment by Larry Littleton on October 25, 2010 at 3:41am
Aloha Kammi! Welcome to the group. Nice to know another person has joined. We're GROWING...LOL.
I am a CDI (Certified Deaf Interpreter) as well as profoundly deaf, too. Let me know if you need an interpreter who has experience on sets!
