We are eternal, remember what we are made of. Death is not an abyss, but a momentary suspension from mortal bones. We will forever rise again, until the end of time. Remember that I cannot be reborn, free of my scars and ailments, without first encountering this apparent darkness, death is a necessary part of our immortality. You should not fear it, and if you cry for me, let it be over what you miss of me. Do not forget that I will return to you, and that my love for you surpasses every plane of existence.
Whatever character you play, remember they are always doing something. They are not just talking. They are alive; going through a drama in which they will go through some sort of dramatic human experience. Keywords: Alive and Experience. It is your job to make them become so. Anything you do on stage or film has a direct relation to something you have experienced in one form or another in real life. Use your imagination to exaggerate or lessen that sensation. Then, disguise it in characterization and don`t forget to make lots and lots of mistakes, and look like a complete asshole. You`ll do fine. - T.H
