“The thing about performance,
even if it’s only an illusion,
is that it is a celebration of the fact that
we do contain within ourselves
infinite possibilities.”
~ Daniel Day Lewis

 

“Gradually, you will experience more and more of that strong feeling which may be called an actor’s presence on the stage. While facing the audience you will never be self-conscious, never suffer from any kind of fear or lack of confidence in yourself as an artist.”
~ Michael Chekhov
