Got a standing ovation in Script Analysis tonight... and then immediately turned around and flubbed the next script. Just wasn't feeling the character, and got a little carried away doing funny voices. Have to remember not to get ahead of myself: don't do something that the script doesn't call for. It's like translation. Yeah, that's it. Pretend the script is in Latin. Or Greek.

I know why there isn't more direction written into these commercial scripts. It's because the client wants to see what I, the actor, can do with it that they haven't already thought of. What do I bring to the party? A lot, but first, I have to start at the same place they ended up with the script.

Acting is hard work. Don't let anybody tell you different.
