Kathleen Turner on Acting 
Conversations about Film, Television, and Theater

by Kathleen Turner, Dustin Morrow

Few actors have had a career as dynamic as that of Kathleen Turner's; success has followed her from the television screen to major blockbusters, from indie films to the theater stage. Over her forty-year career, Turner has developed an instinctual knowledge of what it takes to be a successful actor, and, in her conversations with esteemed film professor Dustin Morrow, she shares these lessons with the world.

With her iconic wit on full display, Turner dazzles readers with her shrewd insights on the craft of acting and charming anecdotes from her own storied career. Touching on each of her roles, she expounds on the lessons she’s learned and describes her journey of discovery in the world of acting.

An epic and intense one-on-one master class in acting from the best teacher imaginable, Kathleen Turner on Acting is a must for acting and directing students of every age, established actors and directors, filmmakers, theater pros, and artists of every stripe.  Buy Here 

Turner, the husky-voiced screen star known for iconic roles in Body Heat and Romancing the Stone, weighs in on her 40-year career in question-and-answer format, led by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker and author Morrow (digital film production, Portland State Univ.). However, the title sells this book short. Yes, Turner talks about her methods and how acting in films, on television (she started in the soapThe Doctors), and on the stage differ, but this volume is also a master class on show business. Turner candidly discusses her career and movies, with some no-nonsense, insider observations about herself and the film business, but this is not a juicy celebrity biography (she gave us that with her 2008 memoirSend Yourself Roses). No, this is a serious and insightful work on acting and directing and what it takes to make it in that competitive world. 
VERDICT For anyone involved in film, television, or theater or wishing to be!   – Library Journal

TIME OUT NEW YORK:
Kathleen Turner brings her raw star power to the Metropolitan Opera

Portrait by James Emmerman

Portrait by James Emmerman

On February 7, 2019, Kathleen Turner made her Metropolitan Opera debut as the Duchess of Krakenthorp in Donizetti’s La Fille du Régiment.

After more than 40 years spent dominating film and theater—in movies such as Serial Momand The War of the Roses as well as the Tony-nominated stage revival of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?—Kathleen Turner is taking on a new challenge: opera. Starting February 7, the voice behind Jessica Rabbit tackles a nonsinging role in the Metropolitan Opera’s retooling of the French comedy La Fille du Régiment. We talked to the longtime New Yorker about moving to Tribeca from the Upper West Side and making her mark as the show’s Duchess of Krakenthorp.David Goldberg, Time Out

Playbill interviews Kathleen about her Operatic Debut.

“Risks are my business…

…Every new job, frankly, is a risk because there’s always a possibility of failure. But that’s my job. Unless I’m willing to risk failure, I don’t grow. And isn’t that what we’re supposed to be doing here on earth?”
