March 30, 2007, Newsletter Issue #58: Acting Tips on Listening

Tip of the Week

“Just listen,” is perhaps the best acting tip you can receive. As an actor a good deal of your work will be scripted, but just reciting lines is not acting. You must actively respond to the material you are given and to your fellow actors. Listening, constantly and vigilantly, is the best way to do this. Listening to your fellow actors helps you to respond naturally and flexibly. Listening to yourself provides an important check to your own performance, allowing you to gauge how well you are working with the material.
