The Compass, a podcast dedicated to the stories of working actors, writers, directors, designers, dancers, musicians, composers, and playwrights, welcomes actor Amelia McClain.
Created by actor Leah Walsh, the podcast documents the lives of artists navigating the waters between art and commerce. Each week, Playbill highlights Walsh’s latest episode with industry professionals who share their own stories about making art, making a living, and maintaining inspiration.
In this week’s episode McClain shares her thoughts on the dark side, the paths that being a reader for casting directors has opened up for her, becoming a parent as an artist, auditioning, and her approach to being an understudy.
The Compass can be downloaded for free on iTunes.
