Ep. 9 Talking Books with Vella Lovell


Actress Vella Lovell (Crazy Ex- Girlfriend, The Big Sick) joins us this week to nerd out on books. Vella talks about reading as an actor, examining scripts for clues to her character’s inner workings, and being a good scene partner. Vella also talks about trusting Oprah’s Book Club recommendations and her love of self help books, especially as a spiritual guide for working actors. We also talk about why it doesn’t matter how you read, it just matters that you pick up a book and get started.

Check out all the books, plays, and movies Traci and Vella discuss right here in the show notes.
