Posted on: 2/3/2015 6:17:00 PM Advice 

Written By: Robert Peterpaul

“Just be nice.” Megan Hilty says when I inquire my signature question of the most valuable advice she has for aspiring performers. “Be nice to everyone you work with.” Readers should take heed from the triple threat whose extraordinary talent and passion has lifted her to stardom. 

A captivating combination of capability and charm, I’d venture to say that Hilty is the closet thing the world currently has to Marilyn Monroe. The ethereal beauty has taken center stage on Broadway with her stellar run ...More

For young actors David Mazouz of FOX's Gotham and Zoé de Grand’Maison of the BBC's Orphan Black, there was no doubt in their minds about auditioning for their prospective roles. Both have very supportive families which helped make their decision easier.
