Edward Woodward made sure that I understood spydome was incredibly humane and considerate. He also was the epitome of standard stock British acting. There's a story about Sir Lawrence Olivier and Dustin Hoffman that made the rounds in that Dustin was describing to Sir Lawrence the lengths he went to in order to capture the "essence" of Marathon Man". He described how he stayed up for 48 hours. didn't shave, paced his room, and went through agonies to make sure he captured the character. Olivier looked at him and said "My dear boy, why don't you just act. It's so much easier!".
Epitomizes my entire perspective on American actors. Stanislavsky made it just so incredibly difficult for actors to be themselves. They have to livetheir characters...and their characters get into trouble!
Nothing in this world is certain...it's all theory! Me
Everything is a mystery until it is understood.
