Bounce BackBy lesly kahn | July 13, 2017
“A successful actor is one who gets 10 NO’s a week during pilot season.
A really successful one might hear 15.
And the closer you get, the bigger, louder, and more soul-crushing are the NO’s that you get.
We get paid to bounce back.
We get paid to put up with all the crap we get.
We act for free.
The glamorous shit is a drop in the bucket.
We need to celebrate when we kill in an important room.
We need to make enough fans that eventually we get constant work.”
