Mental health and acting? Not really spoken about enough is it?

Well, in this feature I wanted to change that, with the help of Emmerdale's Danny Miller.

Not only is Danny an incredible actor - winning the 'Best Actor' gong at The British Soap Awards THREE times... he's also a real advocate for mental health, having suffered with bouts of anxiety and depression for many years.

In this 90 MINUTE deep-dive, we pull the curtain back on what life is really like as a full-time serial drama actor, we look at the 5 most common things that screw up actors' mental health, Danny shares his best strategies to truly master your mindset - and members of Act On This jump on camera for some 1-2-1 coaching too!

During the broadcast, we discuss:

  • Danny's background and entry into the acting industry.
  • When he first noticed that his mental health might have been suffering.
  • Anxiety - and why it's completely normal to feel it.
  • Controlling anxiety and looking at it as a positive.
  • Danny's first experience with depression.
  • Being prescribed anti-depressants and what they did for Danny.
  • Asking for help when you need it.
  • Comparison - and why so many actors hurt their mental health by comparing their career to others.
  • Imposter syndrome and why actors feel it.
  • Mental health and age.
  • Why caring too much about other people's opinions is a losing strategy.
  • Social media and its impact on actors' mental health.
  • What becoming a father is doing to Danny's mental health right now.
  • The ONE thing Danny wants EVERY actor to know.
  • And MUCH MUCH more!
