Acting, and the privilege of being able to do it for a living, is so important to me. I don’t turn up and just hope for the best. I really fret about it. I do my homework; I prepare myself for the experience of playing a particular character.
side note: if you’re wondering what the crashing sound is towards the beginning and middle of the song, the ensemble was spinning pocket watches to the music as part of their choreography, and three of the watches broke throughout the course of the number. so the crashing sound is the watch hitting the floor (this was the first performance with this number)
another side note: sorry for the rough cut off at the end. the song led right into the opening scene and I tried not to have any of the dialogue in there
