About the book:
Why is it that so many good actors don't perform well at castings? Secrets from the Casting Couch gives practical advice for actors, written from a casting director's point of view, teaching the craft of film casting in front of camera. It shows how actors can work with today's internet technologies to get cast and features advice and actual exercises that achieve results in the casting studio. Emmy-award nominated casting director Nancy Bishop C.SA., has developed a successful approach through many years experience of working in the casting studio. The author also runs internationally recognised master classes throughout Europe and the US and is the head of the Prague Film School Acting Department.

"Any actor who is serious about his or her career should read this book"--Matthew Stillman, Producer: Casino Royale, Wanted, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

"As a director, casting a movie can be a terrifying process. Put the wrong actor in your project and you're sunk. How do you find the right person? if you're working with Nancy Bishop you know you're in good, accomplished hands, whether you're a director or an actor. "--Neil Burger, Director of The Illusionist
