What is Acting?

Coaching Corner: What is Acting?

In this episode of The Coaching Corner, R.J. discusses the topic: “What is Acting?” Its not about character development, breaking down the script, “playing” a role or any other of the terms that are thrown around in the industry these days. Its much simpler and more powerful.

“Your self worth as an actor is in who and what you are as a human being”

An actor that is described as “talented” is the one who brings the most of themselves to their work. Its not about putting on a facade or “disappearing into the role” as a matter of fact its quite the opposite. The actor that is closest to their true nature in the circumstances of the “scene” (and I don’t like even calling it that) will react with truthfulness and believability that will move audiences. That’s your art. That is acting.
