To be an actor,the price is high and it takes love and dedication to achieve your goal. I've always felt that a movie becomes a better movie because of the charcter actors in it. They give it the meat of what the film is about, and also make the star look better. This book covers the character actors very well and shows the tragic life they had and the success they had. I only hope the authors will do a volume 2 of more of these actors. This is a book that draws you in and you don,t want to stop reading. You will finish one character actor and be wanting to move on to the next. When watching movies with them in it you will be more vigilant when they appear on the screen ond do their part. This is a fantastic book, one you will keep and refer to time after time.
