I’ve nearly got all my lines down for act one. It’s important to get past the point where you’re wandering around with the script and start focusing on character and delivery.
I remember an interview with Anthony Hopkins where he said pretty much the same thing when asked about his “secret”. Just learn the lines and say what’s written.
Yea right. If only it were as simple as that… But it can’t be too much more, otherwise we’ll appear to be trying too hard and that never looks natural.
Freudian slips? Last night I blurted out “undirectable” instead of “unbelievable”. Nice. That one seemed to stick.
More later – Joel.
