What is it to be ‘truthful’ in your acting?
I believe that the best actors don’t show that they’re ‘acting.’ If actors draw attention to themselves they’re probably over-acting, pushing, playing the emotion or holding onto emotion. When actors do this they are not listening to their fellow actor but ‘working alone,’ focused solely on themselves. Actors who draw attention to themselves also draw attention away from their fellow actors. Their focus solely lies on their emotions. If an audience is drawn in to the actor’s emotions the actor is more than likely ‘over-acting’. His attention is on his emotions and not on his fellow actor. When an actor focuses on his emotions in this way he commits, in my view, one of the biggest sins in acting: –
“Character is defined by what you do. Not how you feel or what you think. I’m surrounded by hypocrites who think and feel whatever is convenient and who don’t do anything worthwhile whatsoever. No one cares what you think and feel. Show us who you are when you “DO” something interesting.” – Stella Adler
In this Video Peter Sardi Demonstrates the difference between non truthful acting (over-acting) & truthful acting.
‘Feeling’ versus ‘Doing’
You are without doubt a fabulous teacher and this is largely because you so passionately believe in what you do and your method of teaching. It is a formula that works! I know you’ve spent years perfecting it. I feel honored to have been able to benefit from all your years of experience. Every time I’ve enrolled I have often thought I get from you far more than my monies worth. – Janine
