Kathleen Turner and Dustin Morrow
Kathleen Turner on Acting – Conversations About Film, Television and Theater
If you want a tell-all, profanity-laced autobiography of actress Kathleen Turner, pass this one by. In a series of interviews with professor and film director Dustin Morrow, Turner talks shop (most of the time). She holds forth on subjects like voice, physical training, auditions, rehearsal, and staying confident in the face of rejection. There are thumbnail sketches of directors like John Huston, Ken Russell, Lawrence Kasdan, Michael Douglas and John Waters, and actors Jack Nicholson (loved) and the late Burt Reynolds (not so loved). Along with invincible confidence, Turner reveals a taste for variety and exploration in her choice of projects.
