What better way for the soul to escape into a world of infinite possibilities? A world where none of the rational world's rules applies, where no right and wrong orchestrated movement and thought but merely the feelings of the actor themselves.
I've always loved watching movies. Growing up with a father who was absolutely fascinated by them and by the whole industry, I didn't really have a choice. I never really felt like my love for the field was anything out of the ordinary, inside our family frame it never really was.
When I was about 13 or 14 years old, I started noticing my love for a lot of things that I had previously considered as unimportant or not really worth considering for a career. I found out that I was absolutely in love with acting.
I had never really payed attention before to that fact that the one thing I always focused on while watching a movie was the actors' performances. I had never noted that that detail sometimes interested me more than the plot itself.
I decided that I was going to pay my best effort to make it possible for me to become an actress someday. Of course, when you think actress, you think Hollywood, and when you think Hollywood you think English. I was already pretty good at the language, but when it came to "performing" the language, I always thought there was something more I could do.
Thus, from reading Roald Dahl novels while paying attention to altering my voice to suit the various characters, and trying as well as I could to picture how the situation would be, and from standing in front of the mirror, practicing facial expressions for hours at a time, my dream travels on to places far more appealing and fascinating then my bedroom and bathroom.
And as time passed, I have also discovered a love and a skill in writing, hence, my dream of someday standing on a high budget movie set develops into being there not just as an actress but as a writer and director.
Until next time, and may all your dreams come true.
