Whats another challenge for an actor ?

Robert Clotworthy – So I guess another challenge for an actor would be to be able to be vulnerable, but the, uh, you know, pliable to be able to be facile to be able to kind of move with whatever they’re asking, they want you to do it one way. Then all of a sudden they give you a 180 degree turn and you’re going to have to be able to go there. So you’ve got to be able to be comfortable enough that you can make those changes and adjustments on the fly.
Uh, oftentimes, actors can’t do that, you know, they say, okay, once you’d be angry, now I want you to be happy. Now I want you to be really sad. I mean, they may hit you with all kinds of different approaches and you’ve got to be able to go into that. Whatever that direction is right away, you can’t take 10 minutes to kind of get into it. You’ve got to be able to go, okay, here we are, I’m here. So, but at the same time, once you’ve crossed that bridge where you’re able to go there, but it’s a lot of fun. Then it’s like, you’re just playing playing ball with somebody. Now they’re just throwing pitches at you and you just keep hitting them. It’s like, okay, you like this, you know what else you want. So at that, at that point, it’s a lot of fun and I’ve been doing it for so long that it’s really enjoyable to go into the studio and actually have people that are asking me to, to do different things.
