I don’t have any theories about acting, and I don’t think about how to do it, except that an actor shouldn’t take himself too seriously, and shouldn’t try to make acting something it isn’t.
The only reason I’m an actor is that a lady pulled out of a parking space in front of a producer’s office.
I’m playing right now a role, and the role is called the ‘Heavyweight Champion of the World.’ And it takes all of the time. And I love this role, and it takes a lot of attention for me for the sport, and I just don’t want to lose the title, so that’s why I have to stay focused and not become an actor.
The genuine artist is never ‘true to life.’ He sees what is real, but not as we are normally aware of it. We do not go storming through life like actors in a play. Art is never real life.
Judges wear legal professionalism and precedent as a mantel that secures legitimacy for their decisions. It’s how they distinguish themselves from politicians or administrative agencies, while wielding power that is sometimes much greater than those democratically accountable actors.
Our stories come from our lives and from the playwright’s pen, the mind of the actor, the roles we create, the artistry of life itself and the quest for peace.
I never wanted to be an actor. I got stuck in it and kind of liked what I was doing.
The part an actor played on stage was once written on a separate roll of paper.
It is the quality of the moment, not the number of days, or events, or of actors, that imports.
In South Africa, we could not have achieved our freedom and just peace without the help of people around the world, who through the use of non-violent means, such as boycotts and divestment, encouraged their governments and other corporate actors to reverse decades-long support for the Apartheid regime.
