9 Truthful Observations How Actors Should Really Get Into Character

The Character You Play

1.The mechanics and science of human nature and its implications to acting are staggering.
Case in point is a "Character" and how to portray without discussing “character” from an acting standpoint.


2. What “character”(in the story) really is from a truthful, practical sociological point of view?

3. It’s you. And “you” as a human with a typical archetype who reacts and changes from different circumstances. Period. That’s what creates different “you’s.”
Hot tea is spilled on you at Coffee Cafe Day. A different you are triggered.
You ask your partner to marry you. She declines. A different you are triggered.
A stranger asks you for directions. A different you are triggered.

4.  “Character” in a screen play, then, isn’t what we think it is or, rather, what we want it to be".

5. It isn’t a stable, easily identifiable set of closely related traits, and it only seems that way because of a flaw in the way our brains are organized. A character is more like a bundle of habits and tendencies and interests, on the circumstance in story and situation. The reason that most of us seem to have a consistent character is that most of us are really good at controlling and changing our environment. If not then we may leave and go to other”
6. So just like in life, circumstances and context in a story trigger the many-sided characters out of us. Sometimes we like them, sometimes we don’t. Then why in 90% of actors, the portrayal of a character looks unreal, artificial as if trying desperately hard to be in a character?

7. In my strong opinion as an experienced actor and an acting coach for the many years, if we can learn while creating a character, how to analyze and judge them less, we can reach them easily and more and become everything of a character we want: fearless, vulnerable, expressed, and instant transformative. Just like we aspire to in life.

8. While creating a character in us everything comes from the inside(feeling and accepting) and so we come out so and so. But keep in mind- for sure it's also true, the outside triggers our insides- for example 'using physical gestures similar to a character in a given circumstance in a story for a convincing.

9. This second consideration may help those actors poor in imagination, dreaming, high emotional sensitivity and self-transformation. An inborn Thick Skinned? Personally, I don't think so.

Poor Memorization Is One Of The Major Reasons Why Good Actors Fail 


How Learning Lines Helps You To Create A Truthful Great Genuine Performance

After my experience with many actors with an excellence in acting craft who unfortunately failed miserably either in auditions or while on filming a scene, I have come to the conclusion of one of the major reason being a poor portrayal of the character due to a nervousness triggered by forgetting lines.
So, is a poor characterization by poor memorization or forgetfulness? I did considerable research to find out the best solution and though this may not be the only right way, here it's for you to try


Learning Lines ( Script)


Step 1.



  • Read your script focused deeply, without looking up, loudly even if you know it and repeatedly
  • Then three times without a wandering mind on bed before falling asleep
  • And three times as you get up in the morning
  • Go step by step In stage 1,  memorize first 3 lines. Cover these lines with some card and see you know them. Similarly then go to stage 2 and onwards
  • Start again from the beginning if you forget any line
  • Don't worry about creating a character, situation, tempo rhythm or emotions. These will follow once perfect with lines. This may be worked later if needed
  • "Script Rehearser Free" app from google play is a good tool which helps you to record other characters'lines and leave space on your own
  • After recording your dialogues, listen to it in waiting rooms, driving, traveling on subway-metro, bus, while walking, jogging or anywhere
  • Replace the lines of a song you remember to script lines. For example "Happy birthday to..." or "twinkle twinkle little star" and sing loudly
  • Write lines in the air and speak them
  • Type lines while speaking them in different font size and in colors on Desktop or laptop.


Step 2.



Creating Character
Once you have memorized your script to a level becoming your second nature, start working on the script for creating a character


  • Breakdown the line by line as per the psychology of the character
  • Questions to asked ( better, let the character answer-by you imagining to be the character)
  • What is the backstory of  the scene and of the character
  • What is a character's objective and how is he/she achieving it?
  • Why the character is saying things the way they are
  • What the importance is
  • What are the circumstances and situation in the scene
  • How the character is showing emotions while speaking (love, sadness, happiness, anger, hate, distaste, wonderment, like-dislike, distrust, peace etc)
  • Write down motives and action required for each line while speaking them
  • Now imagine and try to transform self into character and speak your dialogs in a given circumstances of the scene. Get natural beats and feel it.
  • Write keywords of each line in the margin of the script and make notes on the blank opposite page. Read them every time as needed


I know this is a task, but needed if you want to give a memorable performance in a journey to your dream destination

Bollywood Star's Secret Success Recipe For Strugglers

My acting career hasn't really taken off. What to do?

I want to become an actor. What experienced actors say?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Do You Have Knowledge, Wisdom, And Know:


What's A Life Of An Actor?


What's The Strange and Fascinating Inside Of Acting For Camera?



Knowledge: Is being aware of something, and having information. it's really about facts and ideas that we actors acquire through study, research,, observation, training or experience.

Wisdom: Is the ability to analyze and judge which aspects of that knowledge are true, and applicable to our acting craft and life

Learn And Share Experience Of A Star


These are the saying from the experience of a successful Bollywood *actor- author
(*name is hidden on request)


The Life Of An Actor


  • No person in the industry is your friend who demands your silence or denies your right to grow
  • I gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which I really stop to look fear in the face. I'm able to say to myself, “I lived through this horror of terrible struggle and rejections. I can take the next thing that comes along… I must do the thing I think I cannot do- A winning actor after struggle
  • Don't worry, not all forms of abuse like rejections and criticism leave bruises
  • There are far too many silent suffering actors. Not because they don’t desire to succeed, but because they’ve tried and found no one who cares
  • Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful
  • Nobody criticizes and abuses us more than we do to ourselves
  • When objective and path is not known, self-abuse is unavoidable


The Realities Of Acting for the camera


Remember

  • On camera, a tear contains an ocean. The cinematographer is aware of the tiny moments while an actor is portraying 'life' that reveal greater truths
  • Conflict and contrast is what makes acting for camera interesting. So create one, even subtly
  • There are always two people in every frame of the movie camera: the photographer and the viewer
  • A movie camera doesn’t shoot, actor makes it
  • There is only you and the camera. The limitations are in yourself, for what viewers see is what you are
  • Cinematography is the story I fail to put into words
  • Smile and don't hate when someone looks at your on camera performance and says, “Wow, you have a great camera!". It's not a viewer, could be one of the thousands of ignorant
  • Nothing happens when you sit at home. Carry a mobile with a camera with you at all times. Observe keenly and just shoot anything interesting-types of people, situations, reactions, behaviors...
  • The camera is a love affair with life
  • On camera is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality
  • Your performance on camera is "imaginary" you want to create with reality
  • The cinematography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving life. What you have given on film is captured forever… The camera remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything
  • Which of my on camera performance is my favorite? The one I’m going to give tomorrow
  • When dialogs and words become difficult, speak with expressions focusing on the camera. When even that becomes inadequate, be content with silence
