If you look up the definition of perseverance in the dictionary, you’ll see Beth Fraser’s picture. Well, maybe not literally, but she should be in there. She never gives up.
Beth’s first acting role was as Wilbur the pig in a 2nd grade production of Charlotte’s Web. That’s where she got the bug. Not the spider; the acting bug, and it’s never left. Not even in the face of discouragement from her well-meaning parents. When she got old enough to pursue what she wanted, L.A. beckoned.
As is the case with most passionate journeys, Beth’s hasn’t been easy. She’s very honest about dry spells and periods of self-doubt, but she admits . . .
“I have to keep going. I can’t think of anything else I want to do with my life.”
A lot of us can relate to this. I’ve often said on the podcast that I can’t not show up. It’s a calling, and if I don’t listen (or talk as the case may be), I suffer.
“There are plenty of things that we have other skills for, but what fills you? What feels right?”
It’s an age-old question, Beth, and many of us can relate to that need for fulfillment. I mean, after all, were we put on this earth to just pay bills and be good consumers? I don’t think so. At least when we come to the end of our run we can say that we did what we loved, regardless of the scale of the thing. I suspect that Beth’s scale is heading off the charts!
“If you want to do it, you make it work.”

Oh, and she’s an avid reader and wine pairer, so I can’t wait to hear which wine she sips while reading my novel!
