I do this acting thing mostly for myself. I like to make a connection and communicate with the audience to make myself feel less lonely. I also do it to develop my own character, so sometimes I do it to just be away in a certain area that I've never been to. But mostly, the story has to do something for me.
Carice van Houten
You don't know when you're being watched. That's one of the weird things about celebrity. It's my least favorite part of acting, celebrity.
Acting can be so much fun that it's easy to forget that what you're doing is a job. But if I've got my tie on, I'm going to work.
I remember playing with some friends and being aware that I was acting as I was playing with them - I would think of a character and pretend to be someone else. My parents also took me to ballet school, and there I think I was able to start communicating those feelings or emotions - I danced for so many years.
I reject the idea that when young women make choices with which we disagree, they are acting without autonomy.

Acting in anger and hatred throughout my life, I frequently precipitated what I feared most, the loss of friendships and the need to rely upon the very people I'd abused.
The ultimate goal is to change Syria's behaviour on a variety of issues - on its interference in Lebanese internal affairs, on its support for Palestinian terrorist groups that oppose the Palestinian Authority, on, most importantly, acting as a land bridge between Iran and Hezbollah, where Hezbollah gets all its arms.
I always treat all the jobs I do as an acting class.
I love acting, and it was really important to me to give it a real shot.
Acting is such a weird job.
I need to decide whether to apply for college or delay it for a couple of years while I pursue some more acting projects. Right now I'm trying to sort things out, so I can make the right choices.
Acting is such a bizarre way of life. Unless you're really passionate about it, you should give it up. Don't beat yourself up.
You're constantly getting rejected in acting. You get rejected more than you get hired!
I grew up in Vancouver and my father drove me to every single one of my acting lessons, auditions, and jobs.
After college, I funded my short films with acting roles in film and TV. I learned my craft through the great opportunities British television gave me as a director.
As soon as I got my proper first job, I never did acting again. I think the last thing I did was a Mike Figures film, and then I got a series with the BBC. I'm glad of the experience, because I think it's very, very good to understand what actors go through.
I want to use things I learn about writing in my acting, and vice versa.
