So…now we understand that we can’t think our way into our character’s emotions.  We have to step into those shoes and live in them!

Here’s how you get out of your head and into your character’s heart:

Think about how you relate.  What’s the experience of having a crush on someone? What’s the experience of being lied to?  Or if you’re Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, what’s the experience of finding out that the one person you thought could help you is a fake?  Knowing what the experience is and allowing yourself to feel it is the heart of an actor’s work. Whether you’re performing on stage, film, or auditioning for a part, your job is to have an experience that draws your audience into it with you.  Acting isn’t showing, it’s doing…and doing is experiencing.

So ask yourself:  what is the experience of the scene?
