Good. I never connected with method stuff. Messes me up when I try in fact. To this day. What has worked for me has always seemed analogous to music. You connect with producing the sound (i.e., speaking the words), inform that actual moment and connect with that. You would never tell a musician to conjure up a memory to bring emotion to a piece he or she is playing now. Would you? It makes no sense to me. If the words and the other actors and the world of the play aren't making you feel what you need to feel then something is wrong isn't it?

You're kind, Paul. I can't pretend to have achieved the heights you and Ms.Kaminski have scaled; I'm no Genius.

Paul Mullin

Josh, I still have to write my essay about actors who insist on "feeling it" whether or not the audience does.

Mr. Salyers, I couldn't agree less. When it comes to "contempt, disdain and skepticism" you are a genius without compare.
