That?s why I call you performers. Not actors?performers. Because when it?s time to prepare, you work out every nuance of a role. When it?s time to step in front of the crowd, you reach out and pull them in with both hands. When it?s time to say your lines, you deliver them with skill and meaning.
That?s performance. And there?s nothing phony about that. There?s nothing pretend about that. There?s no acting that will take the place of that.
