Article written by Sam Wood
Finally, is an article written by American film producer Sam Wood.
Above all, it is a reflection on the naturalness of actors/actresses.
Sam Wood refers to the numerous tests they give actors to check if they are suitable for certain roles. In this sense, they end up discovering hidden aptitudes in the actors. In any case, he points out that actors have to be natural, equal to themselves, and only with much study can they evolve their technical skills.
For example, he tells us that in studying the personality of actors, they must train in front of a mirror. In this way, actors can apply all the techniques they have studied, from walking, sitting, smiling, crying, among others.
