Zitat des Tages von Gina Bellman:
Some directors are really strong on action, manhandling you around the set; others are very focused on setting up the camera shots and practically ignore you. You have to get used to introverts, extroverts, directors who clown around for the crew, and the odd one who's monosyllabic.
Any friendship or relationship is about a language.
One of the things you have to be acutely aware of when shooting episodes out of order is your character's relationship with the other characters.
I carried on acting during school holidays and was all set to go to drama school when I was offered my first professional job appearing in 'King David' with Richard Gere.
Fans believe they have a relationship with you, either through your TV character or, more reasonably, through the tweets you may have exchanged. In a way, you have gotten to know them. You learn about people's kids, families, pets.
French cinema allows women to look... a certain way and be talented at the same time.
My average day on 'Leverage' starts at 5 A. M. and ends 12 to 14 hours later. An hour drive to the set and back sometimes makes the day unbearably long. You have to grab a few minutes to yourself where you can.
Not surprisingly, there is a cultural divide between American and British actors regarding the self-promotion associated with new media.
I love acting, and I have no desire to direct.
Some people think it's an easy gig working as an extra, but you often have to stay very concentrated for long stretches in challenging conditions.
My all-time favourite programme is 'Seinfeld;' I could just sit and watch that over and over again.
Every person has parallel tracks. You have your personal life or your life as an artist, or whatever it is you do.
When you shoot on high-definition, everything is very sharp and clear, sometimes at the cost of losing dimension and depth of field.
There is nothing worse than sitting in the make-up trailer knowing that the whole crew are twiddling their thumbs waiting for you to change your hair from straight to curly or up to down. Sometimes it can't be avoided.
One of the things you have to get used to, working on a TV show, is filming out of sync.
I have always liked family-type dramas; I just think the dynamics in families make for some really interesting characters.
