Yes, what you see is what you get. And what you see before you is the “Actor-Character.” Not just the Actor, not just the Character, but the entity in front of you that you and your character must deal with.

Santa Barbara Acting Coach teaches the Actor-Character

Get those frustrating “characters” to respond to you

So accept what’s in front of you and find out what you have to do to get what you need from them in the scene. No more whining about what you’re getting or not getting from the other actor! And yes, that includes those audition readers who drone on and never look you in the eye. Treat them as the “Actor-Character” and you’ll be more alive than you dreamed as you try to get those frustrating “characters” to respond to your own character’s needs.
