In real life, most of us have been fortunate enough to avoid problems such as
- finding out from a letter that your spouse has cheated on you with somebody else’s spouse, but somebody killed them both
- discovering somebody was getting killed while you were fumbling with music
- or realizing that goblins* are going to eat you after they finish eating someone else?
So the bulk of us can understand how difficult it would be to try to act out one of those very same scenarios, with so little personal experience to build on.
Where do you go inside yourself to uncover the characters’ motivation? Do they teach workshops at the local community college? Are there clips on YouTube that demonstrate what it takes?
Awful battle… GO!
*the film was called Troll 2, but it was about goblins.
