What happened during the six weeks that changed your perspective on professional acting training?
That I didn’t know it all what it meant to really be actively listening. I was always so focused on what my line was and what I was feeling emotionally and where my character was going, not just waiting for the end of my partners sentence before I, "I knew I could come in." That was definitely a little jarring for me to realize though, that’s bad acting. Okay. [laughs] Yes. Really actively listening, responding, answering, putting all my attention on my partners instead of what I’m dealing with. Taking everything personally is very hard. [laughs] But it really helped me start to connect with just the principles of what really matters when it comes to acting and being present.
