To Be A Star by Bob Dix - Hamilton in 1973's Live and Let Die

To Be A Star A Guide For Actors and Others
Bob Dix, the American actor who portrayed Hamilton in the 1973 Bond film Live and Let Die, has written another book. His new book, To Be A Star: A Guide For Actors and Others, is now available from Amazon.

Bob Dix’s father, actor Richard Dix, was one of America’s best loved movie stars in the 1920s, ’30s and ’40s. His stardom put young Bob in the limelight and opened the door for an acting career. But being the child of a famous person is different and not easy. The public has an impression of who you are. It is a challenge to discover the true you as opposed to the image that exists in the minds of many.

Bob has brought into focus what he believes is the key to inner peace and serenity for people of any age interested in the meaning of “life”: the life portrayed as an Actor in Hollywood, or the life we create for ourself on our own personal stage, the stage of life.

The inner life of a character must be found and connected to the inner life of the Actor. Knowing the true self must be clear so the reflected life is clear. Knowing who you are–not what you do–is very important for you and any character in a story.

Bob’s years of life in Hollywood will give you a guiding light so you may twinkle as a star.

Editor's note:
Bob Dix has appeared in over 80 movies and television shows. In 2009, he wrote an autobiography of two generations of actors, Out of Hollywood.

In August 2009, FSWL founder Anders Frejdh and Marie-France Vienne (webmaster for Sir Roger Moore's official website) interviewed Bob, read more.
