When Does the Actor Become An Artist

  • When that actor develops an ongoing curiosity about the ways of the world and its human inhabitants.
  • When that actor is steeped in understanding through psychology, and absorbs alternate world views through philosophy.
  • When that actor discovers the connection between movements in the arts and the historical and cultural environments that spawned those movements.
  • When that actor has something to say about the human condition and a need to communicate same.

So leave behind your routines just occasionally: put down the trades, stop checking your voicemail, take a pass on a commercial audition. Yes, skip a casting director workshop and instead, visit a museum, the Symphony, take a class about Joyce (James, that is). Spend a week in San Francisco, Santa Fe or Nantucket. Get out of yourself and indulge in a life’s finer treasures.
