What kind of method acting would you be willing to do if you were cast in a movie?
Christian Bale lost a lot of weight for his role in The Fighter.
Heath Ledger went through psychological hardships to play The Joker.
Dustin Hoffman totally immersed himself in his role as an autistic savant in Rain Man.
Method acting is a phrase that loosely refers to a family of techniques by which actors try to create in themselves the thoughts and emotions of their characters in an effort to develop lifelike performances.
If you were cast in a role that provided you the opportunity to engage in method acting, what would you be willing to do? Would it be physical or psycological. Would you adopt an accent or learn a new language? Would you learn to mimick the movements and speech of someone else?
How far would you go? How would you recover?
