What is acting?

* Bookmark and Share

A quote from Ruth Gordon (1896-1985)

“I wanted to be an actress in 1912; I want to be an actress today. That walk from the darkness backstage through the door or opening in the scenery where I make an entrance into the bright lights with that big dim mass out beyond, which bursts into applause, then the first terrifying sound that comes out of my throat, which they describe as a voice, but that first instant it is the siren of terror and intention and faith and hope and trust and vanity and security and insecurity and bloodcurdling courage which is acting.”

I just closed two shows- and now I have some free time to think, and blog! More to come...
