August 29, 2008, Newsletter Issue #131: Crying on Cue

Tip of the Week

Being able to cry on cue is one of the most difficult aspects of acting. Each person has a different technique. The most important thing is to prepare yourself before your scene. Think of something that makes you sad -- or even happy! Sometimes remembering a tender moment in your life can make you cry. But when the scene time comes, you need to stay in the moment; the pressure to have to cry will overshadow the power of your scene.
