Episode 2: Amanda Bearse
This week on the show, Amanda Bearse joins me to share her insights into Hollywood, why we wear a ‘party face’ and the impact coming out had on her career.
Amanda and I discuss:
- The lengths we go to convince people we’ve got it all together
- What happens when you peel off the ‘party face’ and allow the truth of yourself to shine through
- The real reason Amanda came out at the height of her acting career (trust me, you don’t do that lightly…)
- The secrets of Hollywood and the truth behind why she left
- The legacy Amanda wants to leave behind
