“Acting is NOT showing.”
“Only bad actors try to cry. Good actors try NOT to. Only bad actors try to laugh. Good actors try NOT to. Only bad actors play drunk. Good actors play sober. How a character hides his feelings tells us who he is.”
“The 90% he isn’t willing to share is what I do for a living” (Martin Landau)
