ACTING


Goal of the actor

GOAL OF THE ACTOR

  • The ultimate goal of any actor should be to make us believe completely in the reality of the character

  • They must be able to project sincerity, truthfulness, and naturalness in such a way that we are never aware that they are acting a part

  • Becoming the character can be done on of two ways, from the outside or the inside


Acting

  • Outside approach- do the behavior and it starts to seep inside

    • Learn to limp and discover why the character limps

  • Inside approach- begin with the feeling and memory and those affect your behavior

    • Learn why the limp is there and then let that affect the limp


Types of actors

TYPES OF ACTORS

  • Impersonators- have the talent to leave their real personality behind and to assume the personality of a character with whom they may have few characteristics in common

  • Interpreters- play characters closely resembling themselves in personality and physical appearance, and they interpret these parts dramatically without wholly losing their own identity

  • Personality- primary talent is to be themselves and nothing more


Casting

CASTING

  • Directors must consider many aspects of an actor when casting a part to make sure the part comes off convincingly

  • Some problems can be solved in the production phase, but many can not

  • Sometimes a director decides a cast should not have any one star

    • Ensemble acting- performance by a group of actors whose roles are of equal importance


Acting

  • Typecasting- consigns an actor to a narrow range of almost identical roles

  • Supporting players- the major stars play off them (sometimes as foils) and they make the major stars shine brighter
