BWW Blog: Tara Folio of Auburn University - Every Villain Has a Silver LiningBWW Blog: Tara Folio of Auburn University - Every Villain Has a Silver Lining
by Guest Blogger: Tara Folio - Jan 26, 2016

Not every lesson we learn in our life is engrained into our minds forever. We remember things like "look both ways before you cross the street" and most likely every lyric from all your favorite songs in middle school, but good luck recalling the formula for the Pythagorean Theorem. The same is true for acting, some things we remember, and some we discard because our brain needed to make more room for all the songs from Hamilton (what a hip reference). If there's one acting lesson I have carried with me all of my life, it's this: You cannot hate the character you are playing. Now if you're portraying a wholesome and pure character like "Cinderella" or "Gertrude McFuzz", the task of finding the good in your character is as simple as finding "Horton the Elephant" in a crowd of Whos. The true test of an actor is finding the positive qualities in absolutely devious characters like the "Witch" in Into the Woods or "Orin Scrivello, DDS" in Little Shop. To the outside world these characters seem like the scum of the Earth, but it is the actor's job to closely read into the character and discover the motivation behind the character's dastardly deeds.  (more...)
