Many of the cinema’s finest and most gifted performers embody their roles through method acting, an approach in which the actor ‘becomes’ the character. This style of training features an actor aspiring to achieve complete emotional identification with a part, often staying in character even when the cameras stop rolling. The techniques are built on Stanislavski’s system and were implemented in the United States through the Group Theatre in New York and later famously at the Actors Studio. Three teachers are directly associated with different aspects of the approach: Lee Strasberg (the psychological aspects), Stella Adler (the sociological aspects), and Sandford Meisner (the behavioral aspects). Method acting requires extreme dedication, determination and skill in order to successfully bring the character to life.
