As a director I think it’s important to put actors through their paces emotionally between takes. They are wild animals that need to be broken. Kicked in the emotional ribs. I want them to feel the pain of being abandoned lover, a forgotten child, a refuge floundering at sea. This is the only way we shall ever achieve (italics) the work. The work? The work.
