View this Video and hear Peter Sardi touch on some fundamental truths on the craft of acting.
"Character is born of ACTION / NEED"
"Everything an actor does as the character has to be justified by the character's internal need. As Stanislavski said: There are no physical actions divorced from some desire, some effort in some direction, some objective … Everyting that happens on the stage has a definite purpose." … Robert Benedetti
"There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. … No artist is pleased. [There is] no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others." … Martha Graham
