Playing Small by Christine Horn


You’ve left another audition feeling defeated. You’re pissed because those damn nerves took over your body... again. The real you actually never stepped foot in that audition; your nervous representative did. You go home and wonder if that casting office will ever call you again. The next audition you get forces you to replay this scenario over and over again, and you wonder if you even have what it takes to become a working actor. Instead of learning from the experience, it now haunts you.  

Packed with insider secrets from a working, Hollywood actress, Playing Small: The Actor’s Guide To Becoming A Booking Magnet is an incredibly readable and rich tapestry for any actor, especially those pursuing a career in film and television. Life and Career Coach, Christine Horn, pulls back the curtain of her own successful career to teach us one simple, yet complicated lesson: your thoughts are sabotaging your career. And she is brave enough to allow the piece to unfold with a distinct straightforward simplicity that never loses its edgy intellect.  

This game-changing book will challenge you to push past the strategy you think you know and force you to identify the BIG fears that have held you back from running toward your dreams with your fullest potential. You will learn how to break through your psychological roadblocks that have kept you playing small and feeling stuck in a cycle of stinking thinking, useless comparison, procrastination, fear, shame, doubt, and worry.  

With hundreds of successful client stories under her belt, Christine teaches you how to find the fun in acting again and how to become a booking magnet.

“I love how Christine’s book encourages your undefeatable spirit to recognize the power of being scared and doing it anyway. She lets you see that you are not alone in feeling small, to the point where it actually levels the playing field and becomes inconsequential. She gives you tools to learn to distance yourself from that “wicked little negative voice” in your head, and instead embarrass the wondrous possibilities of being the artist you were born to be.”
