Meryl Streep, Ethan Hawke and Matthew McConaughey acting tips developing your character as an actor

Meryl Streep says to always listen to other actors on stage and in scene. Focus on being a team and find ways to respond to other actors.  "It's where you learn everything."

"Performance is like a sailboat," explains Ethan Hawke. Don't over plan your performance. Let it happen. Get caught in the moment. And when you give yourself the freedom the experiment and explore your character then some happy accidents can happen in your performance.

"Tap into your character's obsessions," suggests Matthew McConaughey. Understand your character's motivations and connect to their emotions. You want to bring their soul to life and treat them like they are a real person. Ask yourself how this character exist outside the script? What would this character be like if they were someone you know and lived in your world?

    1. Your right it's not about being famous it's about loving what you do and accepting the challenges life throw at you, you will get rejected at lot and you have to accept that and build yourself up to be better to give more of yourself into your work to be the best you can be and hopefully someone will realise like that, keep it up and stay positive :)

  9. I've started out modeling and doing background work for different TV shows and I definitely love it. I feel like acting is something that I was meant to do. I like portraying someone else and have others relate to characters that play. I really enjoy it and I'm aiming to be the best actress that I can be.

    1. I also started with modeling but now I really feel that I want more like acting! Because you find yourself in a given character, start to be the character and feel like the character. It's so nice to take so many different roles. I mean life is to short to only be always the same person always!
