Just interviewed #tomhiddleston, one of my favorite actors. And his answer perfectly explained how him and many other British actors & actresses are successful around the world. He said: “There’s a philosophy of artistry in British training, which is ‘we are trained to be artists, we are not trained to be famous.’ The thing that matters the most of all is our work. As an actor, you commit your whole self to doing that work, to be intellectually curious, to be physically agile and to be emotionally compassionate. The head, heart and body all working at once.
Because in British theater tradition, there’s no hiding place, there’s no short cut, no fast track…There’s no digital magic can make you better. The only thing that makes you a good actor is the sharpness of your mind, the size of your heart and the commitment of you body, all working at once.” #kongskullisland #britishboy
