This curious interactive lecture given by actress and software business advisor Zoe Cunningham offers some great advice and practical tips for anyone who wants to do acting (properly). She charts her checkered career of 18 months – from her first tentative auditions to actually appearing in a film with the actor Steve Coogan, via a lead role with the Ladbrook Players (where she wore a dress from the National Theatre costume department) and several short films and workshops, a radio play and productions on the London Fringe for which she received some jolly good critiques.
