Actor/Director/Composer Bruce Dow is joining the conversation on Cue To Cue Today! Today’s episode gets upclose and personal with Bruce as we explore everything from challenges with body image to recognizing when its time to follow a different path and embracing the signals for change. My heart was full after this interview with Bruce. It always feels that way when I experience truth. When someone decides to share their journey without making it pretty or palpable.
Grab a cup of your favourite beverage and be prepared to be challenged and bear witness to someone who is open and not willing to pretend.

- How to think about acting, regardless of the genre you are performing
