My Life As An Actor exercise…
Are you living your life or only playing in other people's movies?
Some live to impress others, get others' respect and recognition, or please them…
Try this exercise.
Imagine you are a strong eagle flying very, very high in the sky.
The eagle sees a familiar person acting here and there.
That person is you.
Now describe the character you are playing as detailed as you can in your journal from the position of that flying eagle.
Now ask yourself:
a) what do you see there?
b) what traits does your character have?
c) are you satisfied with your role?
d) are you playing your role?
e) if you were the movie director, would you change the role your actor is playing? Then what would it be?
f) Does your actor take time to rest from his character and not forget that this is just the role he chose to play?
