Soap, scripts, screen... And Summer

Soap, scripts, screen... And Summer

Soap operas aren't my thing, I must admit. I played my part much more low-key than you'd expect, the over the top, shouty style of soap acting is certainly not something I enjoy, though I believe I did a fairly decent job with it.

Learning the script was surprisingly tricky, I'm usually pretty good with memorising lines but this one got the better of me. Thankfully I managed to pull it together for the filming. Being on screen is much more my style than performing on stage. As much as I love the thrill of performing for a crowd, on-screen people are able to see a more subtle and real sense of my emotions. Plus my eyes, I've been told I have very nice eyes.

I had two performances of this, one with Summer and another with Maddi. Both of which are fantastic actors and people, sadly I can only post one picture at a time (and the fury in my face is just too much to not show off) but I still say they were amazing partners and I was very lucky to have been paired up with them.

This time next week I'll be back to tell everyone about my monologue, only that time I won't have anyone to carry my performance so I'll really need to bring my A-game. Either way, the semester's really picking up the pace and it's becoming very exciting!

Don't forget, same Sam time, same Sam channel!

Monologues. Very easy things are monologues. It's a lot easier to learn lines when it's all on you. I believe I learnt mine on the same day I chose it, the monologue itself being Mike Ehrmentraut's 'Half Measures' scene from the episode with the…
