9-Part Interview with Actress & Host Evelyn Vaccaro
Television hosting is just one of the many different ways to use one's acting skills and training. It is a specific skill, however, that requires a specific type of training. In the work that I do as a performer, actor and motivational speaker, I sometimes call on the skills I learned in this area. I met a young lady by the name of Evelyn Vaccaro (pictured here to the left) in a hosting class I took a few years ago. She is both an actress and host for television. We kept in touch and when I built ActingCareerStartUp.com, I decided that she was a person, a professional that I definitely needed to interview for you. She was very generous with her time and as you will see, also with the amount and quality of the information she shares. On this page you will find links to the 9 different parts to this exclusive interview with her here on ActingCareerStartUp.com. Enjoy.
Part 1: Evelyn's personal story, how she broke into the business.

I want to say you changed my life. I want to be an actress so bad, but i began losing motivation when I couldn't figure out what to do. And then I found you! Thanks to you, I'm taking my first acting classes next month! Yippee!
