Check out Actors Weekly Advice & Tips: Videos from Michelle Danner
This week: Michelle Danner on Getting Out of Your Head
Can you lose your self awareness? Well, you can never completely lose your self awareness, but you can certainly get out of your head. How do you do that? By walking in with a certain energy that reflects your excitement on what you’re about to do, by making strong choices that excite you, by putting your attention completely on the other person, not a hundred percent but a 120 percent, that’s how you really get off of yourself. And by looking at the person that you are doing the scene with, knowing who they mean to you, what they represent, what the relationship is supposed to do to you emotionally, even create a sentence for who they are. Then if you’re at an audition, and the casting director is giving you lines without even looking at you, just like a robot would, you know who the person is to you emotionally, you listen to the language and you listen to what’s underneath the language, and you let that affect you, and so you’re never dependent on what you’re getting from the other person. You know what the relationship is, you know what you are doing to the other person, and that’s how you lose yourself awareness.
