A while back, I mentioned that I was editing a book by William B. Davis, perhaps best known as the Cigarette Smoking Man on the X-Files, but who has also acted in dozens of other TV shows, films, and plays. With a career spanning 70 years, during which he not only acted but also directed, working with the likes of Maggie Smith, Brian Cox, Donald Sutherland, and a host of other greats, William has learned a lot about the craft, and he has distilled those key lessions--as well as a brief autobiography--into a new book called On Actiong . . . and Life. If you're an aspiring actor or director, I highly recommend you give it a read. Available wherever books are sold.
