An Actor Hub Guide to Building a Character: 10 Questions You Need To Answer | Writing | Scoop.it

As an actor it is your job to make the character you are playing, either on stage or screen, a fully rounded human being. This takes time and effort. Here are the ten questions you should be able to answer before playing any role:

Who am I?Where am I?When is it?Where have I just come from?What do I want?Why do I want it?Why do I want it now?What will happen if I don’t get it now?How will I get what I want by doing what?What must I overcome?

Do I really have to do this kind of thorough, thoughtful analysis if I am "just" playing a voiceover character? In a word, yes, but with some modifications..

 

Clearly when you're developing a character for a commerical or video game, you don't normally have weeks and weeks of rehearsals and in-depth analysis to figure this all out, as you would were you playing a character on stage or on-camera; sometimes you only have 5-10 minutes.

 

The good news is that games and commercial characters normally use the same  "types" of characters of characters over and over again. Once you have developed a go-to "harried mom" character, you don't have to reinvent the character next time you audition for this type of role. If you have a "brash, cocky, confident hero character" you bring out for video games, you can recycle the character for different video game auditions, by adding a few 'cosmetic" modifications, like adding an accent or using a slightly different vocal placement.

 

Bottom line is though that you still need to do the work and answer the basic questions. you just learn to do it at an accelerated pace by recognizing the character types when you're a voice actor.
