Bonus: How To Build a Believable Character

Click Play to Listen to Brian on Building Believable Characters. Duration 11 mins. Dear Member, Here is a checklist to go with this audio on Building A Believable Character. To be able to act well is one thing, being able to deliver outstanding acting is quite another. The approach laid out on this audio is an approach used by many of the top actors. Here are the seven areas that I cover. Character Background – Know the character’s history in detail. Internal Life of the Character – Create the emotional life using sense and emotional memory Personalisation – Superimpose someone from your own experience onto your scene partner Fixed Given Circumstances – Know the circumstances that will not change Rhythm and Structure – What is the rhythm of the play and the character, and what is the structure of the scene? Character Needs – What does the character want and how are they going to get it? Best wishes Brian Timoney
