SALLY FIELD ON ACTING

“I find that’s one of the great things about acting–you have the opportunity to stand in somebody else’s shoes, whether it’s someone with mental health problems or someone who lives and works in a small town. Each character faces a dilemma in her life, and as an actor you’re able to step into that character’s skin, look through her eyes. You leave transformed, a different person, because once you live a little bit of someone’s life, it changes you.”

FILM ACTING

“I find in film acting that however many years you have done it for, you can feel totally relaxed and at ease with the people around you, absolutely wonderful, then roll camera and a little part of you goes, ‘Ugh’. It is learning how to manage that.”

EDDIE REDMAYNE

PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN

“Philip Seymour Hoffman used to say that you have to do this job and maintain a sense of humor, that we’re just a bunch of kids putting on a play. It’s all a goof. But, also, treat it like life and death and a game that matters. If you can hold both those truths at the same time then you can really have an interesting career.”  -Ethan Hawke

ACT TODAY

“The more personal, the more universal”. – Gary Ballinger

CONFIDENT ACTOR

“My thought process has always been, I’m excited to show you what my version of this story would look like. You’re going to be able to get a little condensed show. That took the pressure off getting the job” —Tituss Burgess

CONFIDENT ACTOR

Acting is a matter of giving away secrets. Ellen Barkin

CONFIDENT ACTOR

“I made some mistakes in drama. I thought the drama was when actors cried. But drama is when the audience cries.” Frank Capra, Academy award winning director

CONFIDENT ACTOR

“To grasp the full significance of life is the actors’ duty, to interpret it is his problem, and to express it is his dedication.”  Marlon Brando

CONFIDENT ACTOR

“My fear was that people would find out what was actually happening in my life. I was so ashamed of everything: the abuse of my stepfather, living in a motel. I was constantly hiding. I thought: If I’m on time and perfect, no one’s going to ask me any questions. Ballet was the first time — I know this sounds crazy, standing on a big stage, under bright lights — but it was the first time I felt safe. No one could touch me; no one could say anything to me. I could express myself. And nothing else mattered.” -Misty Copeland
