Acting is playing. Remember when you were a child and you played cops and robbers or house or acted like your favortie superhero? You were acting. Actors become completely absorbed in the characters they play, just as children do when they play. While there are many schools of technique available to hone an actor's craft, the essence of acting is the same: You are portraying a life. Your job is to convince your audience that you are the person you are playing. It's a natural process. Just look how easily it came to you as a child!
