About the Book:

This book is an indispensable guide for performers at any career stage. Developed by top acting coach Cynthia White from years of professional experience, and proven successful by her hundreds of clients, Your Castable Types answers the questions and solves the dilemmas confronting actors that never get addressed by college or studio programs, namely, how to launch and sustain a meaningful acting career in today's competitive and fast moving industry.

Why do so many wonderful actors never get the chance to use their talent? Why do well-trained actors fail to convince casting directors to book them for jobs and agents to take them on as clients? Why do so many actors find they're chasing after any career opportunity as opposed to creating a career they love? The simple answer is most actors have no understanding of their Castable Types and without that crucial knowledge and insight, a majority of actors will fail at their creative career goals.

Using her signature method, The Complete Thought Approach and creating an integrated career plan of action, you will learn how to energize and focus your talent with proven acting, audition and marketing techniques that will take your work to the professional and nuanced Performance Level required by agents and casting directors.
