‘An actor’s job is empathy’

‘An actor’s job is empathy’ | Highly Sensitive | Scoop.it

Natalie Portman shared this short but sweet observation on TV recently: “An actor’s job is empathy.” Actors and would-be actors would do well to mull that succinct statement over, and evaluate themselves or how well they vivify it in their own work.

 

So, many local actors of the “looker” sort have a hard time empathizing with the characters they play, enough for them to believably vivify them.


What do they need to do to make up for lost empathy? Natalie Portman is more beautiful than most, so how come she doesn’t have a problem in this regard?
