June 11, 1979
Mr. Tim Miles
Portage, Wisconsin, 53901
Please excuse the delay in answering your letter. I am on location in Michigan right now and it has taken a while for my mail to reach me.
I’m so glad you enjoyed “Superman”, and hope you will like the movie I’m working on now titled “Somewhere in Time” as much. It’s a totally different role for me and I’m really excited about it.
I wish you much luck in your acting career and have found that there is four pieces of advice that have worked for me.
1. Be sure that acting is what you want as a career
2. Know that there is an alternative way to support yourself during the “hard” years the inevitably happen.
3. Audition for everything you can.
4. Don’t give up if it’s what you really want.
I have also found that the best to be seen by agents is in Showcases in New York City. These are advertised in the trade papers in that area. Of course, I can’t guarantee that this will work for you, but it has done allright for me.
Again, thank you for your letter and much luck!
