That’s So Method…Or Not

About this episode

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-6k5qx-128e3ab

Daniel Day-Lewis. David Harbour. Marilyn Monroe. We recognize actors by name, and we admire their work. But how did they learn to do that? 

In this episode, we pull back the curtain to share some of the artistic influences behind famous screen stars. (And two not-so-famous actors, Candy and Ashley, share a few of their own influences and techniques as well!)

What advice helped make B.J. Novak into the director he is today? What is the Method Acting approach that some actors, like Daniel Day-Lewis, swear by? And why do others regard it as potentially dangerous? 

As an added bonus, we share a short interview with Dr. Jack Wann, whose career as a drama instructor and director has spanned more than 60 years, with the areas including high school, college, community theater, and 10 years at the prestigious American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City.
