Amber Petty attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York, taught musical improv at the Upright Citizens Brigade, and starred in an off-Broadway show based on the 50 Shades books. She also discovered that the life she’d imagined and the one she was living weren’t the same, and shifted into writing. She also helps ordinary people build confidence about singing at SingADifferentTune.com. We talk about the realities of life as an actor; dealing with rejection (and whether that’s harder as an actor or a writer), how “overnight success” really works, why singing is such a vulnerable act, and more.
You see tons of good people who don’t get the success they deserve because they aren’t good at or don’t like doing all the networking, promotional things they need to do, or aren’t as good at an audition where you have 30 seconds and all the pressure in the world to show that you’re good enough.Amber Petty
