Actors are loved by the people.
This doesn’t mean knowing movie stars.
You are part of art and culture and, therefore, play a key role in the life of the society.
People have always gathered together to see and hear stories, stories that reflect life.
Those stories reflect the working day; the life of the people; their weal and woe; concerns and aspirations.
We need this artistic interpretation of life to help us learn and grow.
As Hamlet says to the Players: ‘…the purpose of playing, whose end, both at the first and now, was and is to hold, as ’twere, the mirror up to nature…’
Nature being life, and the mirror, our stories, plays and films.
Your significance as an actor is defined by your ability to reflect the human condition.
The media barrage of movie star gossip and drama that occupies our minds is another thing altogether.
