Actors must learn to understand screenplays.

            With modern scripts, you have less text to delve into for an emotion.

               study script

  1. A director and an actor cannot save a bad script, like no unity.
  2. Actor must learn "what is a good or bad script, what scene will work or not".

              mark in your script jokes

  1. The first thing you have to do is study your script and you have to make a mark where you believe the laughs are.
  2. When you are reading your script and you know where the jokes are, put a slash mark next to it so you know when to do the beat. The beat is no more time than time to inhale.

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