Hollywood has always been a gold rush, and if you strike gold, it’s a rush unlike any other. The world of acting can be cut-throat and full of rejection, or it can be life-affirming and offer limitless possibilities. On The Big Break, Kellie Martin and Chad Lowe talk with fellow actors about that magical moment when they first struck gold, when their lives and careers changed forever. Was it that audition for Rob Reiner? Or was it being cast in a cereal commercial in the 1980s? How did they prepare for opportunity to come knocking? Drawing on their own experiences growing up in show business, Kellie and Chad go all the way back to their guests’ beginnings to learn how some of the most beloved actors of our time got their Big Break.
