Actors are asked a lot of questions about their work. Everyone watches acting - on the television, film or stage. In OTHER PEOPLE'S SHOES Harriet Walter describes how she learned her craft and explores some of the connections between her life and work and looks at the different forms of acting required for stage, film and TV. Honest, direct and penetratingly intelligent, OTHER PEOPLE'S SHOES is both surprising and involving for any reader intrigued by acting and actors.

My advice to every young actor: read this book. --Sir Richard Eyre

A fascinating insight into the working life of an actor... very enjoyable. --Jeanette Winterson, The Times
