Why Train? An athlete, musician, or doctor, would never ask such a question. If acting were such an easy career, wouldn’t everyone want to do it? If you want to be an artist who affects people then you must prepare your craft.

But when the stakes are high and tension and self-consciousnesses creep in, we need techniques to fall back on in order to soar.
