     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.
     The character is asking these questions, not the actor:

who am I?

what do I feel?

and what do I want?

     Also, find the personal character's attitude toward others, because every character must have an attitude to make their individual self.
Then give the character a mask... always remember people wear a mask.
     Reading a part, don't believe everything character says: natural behavior of lying everyday.     The face they put on to the world.     What is really going on inside the person is what you choose. What they pretend is only their mask.

However, if you succeed too well in your mask, there is no drama.
