Every time I go out to Act, there is an inherent dilemma of where to start from.
Remembering lines, working on the physicality of the character, working on my diction, creating a backstory..
What exactly is the most crucial aspect that an Actor needs to focus on, to do proper justice to the script?
Though there is no definite answer to this question, one element which I keep witnessing from time to time is..
If the audience feels what the Actor wants them to feel, the job is done.
And I believe, that’s where the Emotional Journey of an Actor comes into Play.
From being honest every moment, to thinking like a character, to projecting the emotions, it is an entire process in itself, which an Actor needs to learn.
I won’t say more on this, because, like Richard Nathan said in his script – The Bad Day, “I’m just a student.” 🙂
