I'd really appreciate it if some fellow actors could give me some tips.
I'm getting a jump start on the monologue I'll have to perform in my theatre class. I'm just not sure 'how' I should play this character (there are so many different ways I have envisioned her). I get a good idea of how she is, I rehearse it that way and the next time I rehearse it, she gives off a different vibe and I begin to think that I like that idea better. The character usually comes out as how I am feeling at that moment. I become confused about what the real objective is because it always seems to change. I actually didn't have this problem before I began reading books on acting, emotions came naturally. It's almost as if part of my ability has become crippled? So, my questions are -- am I training myself wrong? and how should I go about building this character?
