    Do you consider yourself a decent actor? Have you ever been in a commercial or play? Who are some of your favorite actors?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    When I was younger, I used to have parts in school plays including "Oliver!" but I wasn't that good at acting really.

    I'm not a great actor. I've been in a commercial once and the person recording me did commend me for just doing the role I was asked and not adding in my own unnecessary dialog.

    I'm not a huge movie buff but I like Johnny Depp, Emma Stone, and Leonardo DiCaprio (although I don't have the patience to sit through Titanic)

    My favorite movies are musicals so which I couldn't tell you the actor/singers' names I really like when an actor has a good set of pipes.

    I would subtract dialog until I was just standing there saying nothing. So I'm probly not a good actor.

    I used to like being on the stage but I haven’t ever tried acting but I used to dream about being in a movie or making indie movie but all that has disappeared when realizing how movie industry works. I don’t have favorite actors anymore but I like Noah Baumbach movies and Greta Gerwig.

    Can't act my way out of a paper bag.
    Been in some plays.
    Isabelle Huppert comes to mind. Last film I saw her in was Claire Denis' WHITE MATERIAL. Great movie with many layers.

    For me it's more liking an actor in a certain role. I guess I'll go with James Spader in The Blacklist. He can really elevate a scene.

    Same. And I find it fascinating to be someone else than you are, I mean there is something interesting about acting in general and when someone can act like completely different than he normally is is just very interesting to me. Like Joaquin Phoenix in Joker. Sorry if I remember his name wrong. It is creative skill obviously but there is also psychological aspects.

    Acting can be a kind of transformation. Joaquin Phoenix in Joker is a great example. It's one of the better movies in the last couple years. Goes to a very dark place but I think it shows the tragic state a lot of people are in and can inspire sympathy. Something that happens to me is I'll get used to an actor with a certain look, accent, mannerisms, etc. and then see them in an interview being themselves. It feels like a different person. Shows how much seemingly small details affect how we view a person.
