In this Q&A episode of Actorcast, we talk with Ryan Kessler, an actor and acting coach. Ryan and I had the opportunity to meet while doing a production of the Scottish play. From there, I took an acting class with him, which I highly recommend! He answers listeners' questions on agent/manager relationships, the craft of acting and acting techniques, and his insights on how to create a sustainable, artistic career.
