Larry Moss and Given Circumstances redux

“One of the talents you need is to be able to break down a script and identify facts that the writer gives you that help you understand your character, what each scene is about, and what the whole script is about.

But just as critical as your emotional response is being completely clear about the actual facts of the story. Because only by identifying and investing in these facts can you bring your truth - your interpretation - to your performance.” - Larry Moss “An Intent to Live”
