what makes someone a “character actor” versus a non-character actor: the fiction we've been trained to believe versus the reality
what we've been taught
a non-character actor just plays themselves
a character actor is a chameleon who transforms into a wide range of complicated human beings.
James Nicola, thank u for spilling that tea...so tired of the woowoo magic of the business ...a business that cares little for the average artist wishes and dreams so then it behooves the artist to really find ways to reveal the deepest parts of themselves bec the business rarely makes decisions based on what we've been taaught to think is important....that's why artists must make instead of relying on business decisions to determine their story....
