Knowing your character

As an actor, it is your job to develop an intimate understanding of your character When you create the map, you are starting a sketch of the character and then bringing that sketch to life by filling it in with all the detail you possibly can. The more specific you can be, the better.

To build a believable and real character, highlight your character’s unique personality points while withholding any judgment that you may feel about their choices.
