    The actor must convince himself of the rightness of what he is doing

    (Lee Strasberg)


    “The human being who acts is the human being who lives. That is a terrifying circumstance.”

    “Essentially, the actor acts a fiction, a dream; in life, the stimuli to which we respond are always real.”

  • “The actor must constantly respond to stimuli that are imaginary. And yet this must happen not only just as it happens in life, but actually more fully and more expressively.”


    The human being who acts is the human being who lives.


    “Although the actor can do things in life quite easily, when he has to do the same thing on the stage under fictitious conditions, he has difficulty because he is not equipped as a human being merely to playact at imitating life.”

    “He must somehow believe. He must somehow be able to convince himself of the rightness of what he is doing in order to do things fully on the stage.”
