Working actors everywhere can take Sarah Snook’s advice to heart, particularly when it comes to the many rejections that follow auditions. This in-depth interview reveals the actor’s approach to both her career and character-building process, which involves finding their vulnerability and where it overlaps with her own. “You’re afraid of revealing yourself? You’re meant to as an actor.” Sarah is likely best known as the fabulously ruthless Siobhan “Shiv” Roy on Jesse Armstrong’s Emmy-winning drama “Succession” from HBO. She’s worked in theater, TV, and film in the U.S. and her native Australia, including in “Sisters of War,” “Predestination,” “The Dressmaker,” and “Jessabelle,” winning two Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards.
