Here’s a quote from Anna Camp from True Blood. ”I had no idea, actually, that I was gonna kiss the head, it just sort of happened…If I get an impulse that’s, like, creepy, I’m like, why not? They can always tell me not to do it. But better to be pulled back than to be pushed forward.”
In the Intentional Acting Industry Days, Casting Directors always say, “It’s easier to ask an actor to tone it down, than it is to ask an actor bring it up.”
The idea of allowing yourself to go big really just tells your critical voice to be quiet and tells you to risk trusting your instincts. That’s what Anna Camp did – she risked trusting her instincts. Risk it. Trust your instincts and see what you discover.
