acting 101: #6 attitude towards acting

The way you consider your intention and your task as an actor highly influences your performance.

Mahershala Ali, winner of this year’s Oscar for best supporting actor for his performance in Moonlight, gave an inspiring acceptance speech which I’d like to quote:

“And one thing that they consistently told me is that it wasn’t about you. It’s not about you. It’s about these characters. You’re in service to these stories, to these characters.” — Mahershala Ali

Do you just act because it is your passion and it’s fun or do you see a greater meaning in your job/hobby as an actor/actress?

Mine is the purpose of creating art that people can relate to and be inspired by for a long long time. And it’s so freakin’ fun!!
