“Acting is all about what’s happening within you.”
Helen Mirren says in this trailer for her MasterClass:
Never act in front of a mirror. You are doing the exact opposite of what acting is about.
Acting is all about what’s happening within you. It doesn’t matter what’s happening on your face.
It’s a collaboration between us all [referring to others in the crew]. Your costume designer is incredibly important in building your character.
Likewise, the environment is going to tell the story of the character as much as the costume is.
