(19b) Production Notes

This was the first episode that required desperation and crying. I had noticed before that when playing anger I got angry. This was true for pride and playfulness and pretty much any emotion. Doing the “omg I’m being beaten up and I’m afraid for my safety” was actually emotionally draining. Obviously not as much as actually going through that experience would be. But it was very uncomfortable, and I’ve gained some appreciation for the actual work that (some) actors do.

  1. Fascinating! :)

    I want to try exploiting this. E.g. playing that I am *happy* to tackle that pile of laundry… ;)
