Take the pressure off. Start by returning to your full self-expression. Acting is not about hiding behind a character you create. Your job is to look through your own eyes, think your own thoughts and fight for something you want. Acting is about knowing what you have to say and letting the script, the scene, the play (whatever you’re working on) serve your expression. It’s about completely trusting yourself and your instincts every time. It’s about never, ever leaving your “stuff,” your “life,” your “feelings” outside the door, no matter what “they" tell you. It’s about being the full, complete, high stakes human being you already are in every piece of work you do.
