No Method

“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.” -Friederich Nietzsche

The reason why nobody can really explain “The Method” when it comes to acting is because there is no method. (Read this excellent New Yorker article about the just released book ““The Method: How the Twentieth Century Learned to Act”)

There are wonderful tools for your toolkit and you should learn and study them all. See what works for you and what doesn’t. Pick and choose. Be a grocery store artist. Know and be deeply committed to your craft

But also realize that acting is art. It’s alchemy. Elusive. A little bit magical and mystical. And however you get there is entirely up to you.
