A little while ago i discovered by complete chance the movie called "The Fall" by Tarsem Singh, and had a "click"... I watched it several times in a row and discovered that the unusual quality of acting between Lee Pace and this little girl Catinca Untaru just pushed wide-opne the tiny door to this hidden old dream of mine: acting!
Now who doesn't want to be an actor? The reasons may differ but the secret wish is there for pretty much everyone.
As far as i'm concerned, until recently when i saw "The Fall", i never took it seriously because it's a hard path and simply didn't seem reasonable. And yet, in all the small productions (theater and short movies) i've done at school and more recently as well, i've always been told i was gifted (and not just by people i knew!) and felt quite at ease entering a stranger's skin.
My last experience was last year, when a famous american photographer, Louis Stettner, asked me to act in his newly written play "La Loque Humaine". He wrote it in broken French which made the whole experience quite a trip! We rehearsed for 8 months and then gave 3 performances in front of an open audiance. It was a blast! I had a real kick with the whole anecdote: a famous US photographer wirting a play in French and directing a bunch of pros and amateurs...!
Coming from the Photography industry, i was used to be behind the camera or basically "looking"... Is it time for me to be "doing"?
Anyway, today, i realised that for one, acting is running in my blood for many generations, and i'm soon 35, so i should give it a serious try now or definitly let it go.
So i've been trying to find drama classes and plan things. At this point i'm even ready to go abroad. Such a large choice! Tough decisions are to be made.
I'm guessing i've subscribe to this website a little too early perhaps...
So naturally, i'm open to any suggestions or tips!
Thanks for reading this unusual (i suppose) presentation.
Wishing all of you the very best of luck in every aspect of life!
