being other people

     Acting is being other people.

     The actor starts with a clean canvas -- you are the material in creating another person with the character's who am I, what do I feel, what do I want, attitude and mask

     It has nothing to do with you, the actor is not the character.

     Becoming other people.

     Every part is not what the actor does easily.

     If acting is being other people, you don't carry from part to part what ever the hell worked for you last time. You have to make a human being, you have to make somebody recognizable and acceptable to an exact person.

     Acting is not recital. Acting is not imitating the character.

     That is why it's "being" the character.

"In the end, it can't look like acting."
