    Best answer: Isn't that like every story ever. They always laugh at people with their own passion. They said x rays were a hoax, that a heavier than air plane could never actually fly, and that computers for home use wouldn't even sell, and the ones that would would have few uses, and that UFOs and Jesus were just... show more

  • Are Some Actors Lucky?

    Best answer: Luck is sometimes a consideration, but talent, training and resolve have a lot more to do with finding fame.

    Best answer: Luck is sometimes a consideration, but talent, training and resolve have a lot more to do with finding fame. Most actors don't set out to get famous they act because they love acting.

    Most actors work for years and then get cast in a role that brings them renown. Solo is one of the more interesting roles in SW. Ford had a solid resume going into the film having been cast in several films and TV shows for over a decade.

    I remember both Ford and Fisher from earlier films they did wasn't too surprised to see them in SW. Ford when on to introduce me to the very talented Alfred Molina. His role in Raiders of the Lost Ark which was only his 2nd feature length film. I remember sitting in the theater riveted by his strong performance in a small role and thinking
    "who is that!?" He has built a very solid career since then.

    Luck is only a very small part of any profession.

    It's less than a month until this year's round of drama school auditions. I'm applying for RADA, LAMDA and GSMD. I need to learn four speeches because they all want different things and I know three out of four off by heart. The problem is that because of the time of year, my S.A.D has come back and had zapped all of my energy. I really want this but I cannot find an ounce of energy to rehearse and perfect my performance. It has become a vicious cycle and I'm getting more and more stressed and angry at myself because this is the big one I've been waiting for all year and I'm nowhere near ready to go. I've no idea how to get out of this toxic cycle. I know it's down to me but yelling at myself to do it isn't working. I'm actually having nightmares about being there and not knowing my lines now. Help!

    UPDATE: As I recall Ellie doesn't get everything she wants. She can't have children. So you have to discuss that disappointment. How do she and her husband adjust to this? I'm not sure but I don't think the movie goes into their lives together much except to show that they were happy. So fill it in. Maybe she has a fulfilling career, or just enjoys cooking and gardening. She was perhaps worried about her husband when she gets sick. How would he do on his own?
    Then you have to decide if she had any awareness of the events after her death of if that's the end of the story for her.

  • Is film acting much more challenging than stage acting?

    Best answer: Both have their own challenges.

    Stage acting means you have one chance to get things right during a performance. Every word and movement must be memorized.

    Film acting is done in small takes for the most part and will be repeated several times. The body movements must be minimal and consistent but if a line is flubbed the whole bit can be restarted.

    Having done both, I much prefer stage acting. I find film work disjointed, repetitive and disconnected when compared to being on stage.
