|Could you say that your tools as an actor pertain to a certain school or concrete method?
I have a broadcasting background so I memorize as though I am reading the news so I can memorize easily and can use a teleprompter and sound as though I am speaking naturally. I have found by including the points and leaving room for ad-lib if possible in the script works best.
a concrete method to be the very best at all times
Absolutley not... I'm autodidactic.. Self taught... I have taken classes all over the world and learn continuously on set, and by watching the greats and well as the bads...
No. I use my tools when and how they are needed.
I always imagine if the role I'm portraying or the scene is as if it's real life and the situation is really happening. there are no lines and what I'm saying is coming from me, not the character.
Can't really say. Everything all around can actually help with certain ways of acting.
I am trained in the Eric Morris technique primarily, but also I did study in Leqoc in Paris, Academy of Dramatic Arts in Sarajevo and in LA, with Ivana Chubbuck and of course Eric Morris.
NO - LIFE EXPERIENCE AND RESEARCH HAS BEEN MOST VALUABLE
I try to mix different schools and methods. take what feels right for me from each direction and use them depending on role and scene and what works best at the time. A good method may not work for me in a certain scene given certain circumstances.
An actor's greatest asset is their openness and I believe there is merit to be found in each of the many different schools of acting 'thought'. I wouldn't confine myself to any one way of thinking, just as in life we cannot say that one way of thinking is more valuable than another. The most important thing, I believe, is having empathy for your fellow humans and, also, an awareness of - and respect for - the inevitable transience of life.
haha. not one bit!
No. I don't think they don't. As a child, my main tools are the support from truthful friends, directors, and my family (especially my supportive parents).
