Acting
June 12th, 2014

Acting is the work of an actor or actress, which is a person in theatre, television, film, or any other storytelling medium who tells the story by portraying a character and, usually, speaking or singing the written text or play. Most early sources in the West that examine the art of acting (Ancient Greek: hypokrisis) discuss it as part of rhetoric.

Question
9 of 25
What character was the toughest for you to change into?
 
User Submitted Interview Answers
1.
It's whenever I try to play a character that I have a really hard time connecting to and finding a piece of myself in. Because that's how I act. I find a piece of that person that I can relate to, that I can find in myself, no matter how small and I latch onto it and I act, focusing on how that part of myself would react if that makes any sense. Like, that bad part of yourself that wants to like go around breaking lamps and smashing plates when you get angry, you channel that and you can play a character that allows themselves to do that. And characters I don't believe. Those suck. But I try not to play those.
 
2.
Every character is challanging..
