Today, I see acting teachers exploiting the insecurity of young actors and taking their hard earned dollars under the guise of sharing some secret process all the stars use. It makes me sad and angry.
As in any art form, there is no right way. Anyone who tells you that will take more than your money. There is however a wrong way. Any way that doesn’t get you to where you need to be is the wrong way. Overwhelmingly, most great actors have trained, and they have trained hard. Most can’t put a finger on how they get from point A to point B. They may be able to talk about how they prepare, but once the curtain goes up or the director yells action they are no longer thinking about how to do it. The great ones let go and become awash in imagination, emotion and instinct.
This is what I teach. How to let go. How to trust your training and your talent. How to truthfully take responsibility for every line, and every moment between them.
