Joan F. Wood

Joan F. Wood. Joan was born in the United Kingdom and aspired to be an actress at a very young age which how she found herself on her 18th birthday arriving in New York on the QE2 ready to take a bite out of the Big Apple. In her memoir ‘The Casting Couch and Me’ originally released in the mid 1970’s she details her experiences as a young actress during the height of an era where roles were often given based on the performances on the casting couch rather than on the stage. This poignant, funny, and sometimes heartbreakingly honest story of a girl full of enthusiasm that carries her portfolio in one hand and dreams of elusive stardom in the other ultimately collides with reality and the ‘Casting Couch creeps’.
