Acting After Illness #12 Patience

Anthony Hopkins is rumoured to read his script at least 200 times. This is one way of learning your lines, but, moreover, this action will reveal the hidden surprises in the text. The what is really being said, the emotional feel of the lines, that he didn't "see" on the first reading.

Acting After Illness #6 Anger

The AVM in my head has been treated with radiation and the hope is to obliterate it. If I take Aurelius's view, in the greater scheme of things, and in relation to the bigger picture, it is then a very very very small abnormality indeed. An annoyance.

Acting After Illness #5 Resilience

Building resilience is changing my life. Resilience has made me more committed to my life, my goals and I have good reasons to get out of bed in the morning. Resilience is needed to work as an actor.

Acting After Illness #3 Fear

For me, one of my fears is, I am afraid of what I sound like. I am afraid of how people will perceive and judge me on the basis of how I sound when I speak and how I might say something or how I might pronounce a word

Acting After Illness #2 Vulnerability

Acting After Illness

Acting really had been my way out, my way back from my darkest hour, my getting back on the horse, my resolution of conflict. Being in hospital for a long period of time makes you withdrawn. To work on my performance confidence I took RADA's over 24's Contemporary Scene Study course and progressed to their level 3 Acting course.
