As an actor, my job is to make you feel the emotions of my character.  I need you to feel the pain, anger, joy, and every emotion that you cannot explain. It requires many hours of practice and dedication to master this art, the skill that will make everyone cry, laugh, and captivated. I’ll take you to my world. But please be advised that it would be hard to get out. I told you in my “Meet the Actor Page” that I cannot tell the difference anymore. I’m in limbo where everywhere is all about acting. You just can get lost and at the same time, discover the roads and corners you’ve never been before. My words cannot contemplate what I want you know, that is why I’m an actor for a reason.

The Sadness

According to www.stellaadler.com, sadness is more than showing your lonely face. Your eyes has to speak the depths of the sadness that’s lingering in your soul. A depth that’s too deep, no one can dig. Only then, you can be sad. Sadness is composed of emptiness and dissatisfaction, humans tend to be clueless where they came from. The tend to find the solution but can’t find one. The solutions finds them. A man can do is to only wait for it to come and continue to move on with lonely life. This is sadness.

The Joy

A happy girl

This the part where you stretch your mouth, relax the muscle of your face and let it brighten. Let your heart explode with the positivity it offers. Imagine yourself to be in place you wanted to dance so badly, just let go. Be free to express the joy inside you. Hug someone, tell them how important they are. The best way to express happiness is when you an make someone happy. See the glow on their faces and observe how their moods change. Then once you’re home, look in the mirror.

The Anger

Man who is madAnger is my favorite emotion in a play because it helps me release my self from withholding the things I want to say. This is the time when I grind my teeth and close my fist as if I’m going to punch someone in the face.  There will more emotions that you would come across in acting. The best tip I can give you is to remember the moments you can associate to the emotion you want to show. If you want to cry, remember the most painful event in your life.

“I don’t usually lose my temper, but if I get angry, it’s true – I’m scary.” – Eva Mendes
