Comedy can be more difficult than drama. It requires more attention to timing. In the theater, you're always dependent on the audience for the energy, but in comedy the feedback you get is more important. You can judge by the quickness and the length of the laugh just where you stand with the audience.
David Alan Basche
In professional wrestling, I think that they want you to be bigger than life. It's almost like an over-acting type thing - whereas on the big screen, you're 35 feet and they've got a close-up of you to put it on the screen in the movie house. At 35 feet, it's more subtlety than the overboard drama that we do in pro wrestling.
It's always appealing to play a character that has to overcome himself as well as an obstacle. It makes the drama so much deeper.

Ezra Taft Benson
As a boy, I'd always had an interest in theater. But the idea at my school was that drama and music were to round out the man. It wasn't what one did for a living. I got over that.

There's no way around it - drama is very difficult to shoot. It's very heavy and something that you carry with you for the course of the day.
At the end of drama school, I made a contract with myself: I'd try acting for five years. I was 26. I had already spent eight years working in restaurants and gas stations. So I had seen enough small businesses to understand that that's what acting is: a small business.
Drama assumes an order. If only so that it might have - by disrupting that order - a way of surprising.
Most of our lives aren't that exciting, but the drama is still going on in the small details.
When people ask what I write about, that's what I tell them: 'The drama of human relationships.' I'm not even close to running out of material.
The thing a drama school can't give you is instinct. It can sharpen instinct but that can't be taught, and you have to have intuition. It's an essential ingredient.
If I had a child, I wouldn't let them go to drama school. At times, I was really unhappy there.
I believe we owe our young an education that captures the exhilarating drama of science.
Film music should have the same relationship to the film drama that somebody's piano playing in my living room has on the book I am reading.
When I decided that I might want to do acting for a living - I don't know where it really came from, since there was no school play or any of that - my mom gave me her blessing. I had to get a scholarship - that was the only way I could have gone to drama school.
I'm not a drama person, but when you can make a movie in song form in three-and-a-half minutes, it's surreal.
I came out of drama school thinking I'd do some theatre, maybe some television, and maybe, someday, a film.

I think there is a long exploration in American drama of women in particular who, by force of circumstances or because they are predisposed to, choose fantasy over reality.
I think journalism gets measured by the quality of information it presents, not the drama or the pyrotechnics associated with us.
