First act actor and second act actor meet to swap experiences and perspectives on breaking into this notoriously tough industry! On this episode of the Second Act Actors podcast, I talk to actor Adam Murciano who grew up in an acting family and decided to pursue acting and ended up becoming a famous podcaster along the way.
Adam tells me what it was like to see his parents and grandparents regularly go off to auditions and how he landed his early successes as a child actor. We get into an interesting discussion on coping with rejection and whether you’d prefer to be notified that you’re not chosen or just ghosted by the casting director. Adam tells me about how he’s developed skills to protect his feelings from being burnt by rejection and how he keeps the fun alive in auditions. Listen out for the great advice that Adam’s acting coach gave him, which might just help you to book your next role!
Later on in the episode, we get onto Adam’s exciting new fictional podcast series Cascadia. He delves into how he made the podcast and what it means to him to achieve success on his own terms, with his own project. Stay tuned right to the end to hear his words of wisdom for anyone trying to break into the entertainment industry.
