I agree. I’ve heard people sarcastically say that actors are just professional liars and that couldn’t be further from the truth. Unless you incorporate an element of truth or realism into a character, you won’t be able to connect with the audience or truly bring your role to life. Thanks for enjoying the blog!
I wanted to make some new posts but memegenerator is down so instead I’ll pose a question:
What’s your favorite/most trusted insider theatre trick? Whether it involves makeup, costumes, warm-ups, rehearsals, finding your light, set building, whatever, what’s your most clever or helpful trick of the trade?
