Tom Hanks On Acting

Listening to Tom Hanks give advice is always a plus in my book.

BAFTA Guru on YouTube posted this video a while back and I don’t care how old it is, it’s great.

From the description: “Being an actor is “a never-ending process of examining where you are in life” reflects Tom Hanks as he discusses living off $50 a week, how every director is different and the importance of energy and instinct in his early career.”

Here’s the questions he’s asked:

How did he get started?

What piece of advice would he offer his younger self?

What advice would you offer a director a new director about working with actors?

How do you pick your projects?
