“I believe that acting is action oriented, and emotions are the result of intentions successfully or unsuccessfully achieved. An actor does not come on a set or stage to ‘feel an emotion.” The actor ventures into a dramatic situation to do something. There is a reason why acting is also re-acting. An actor who feels the electric two-way giving and receiving is truly alive.”

Rita Litton (from the book “Acting for Young Actors” by Mary Lou Belli and Dinah Linney)

“The famous stage actress Ellen Terry quoted three “I’s” essential for an actor’s success: Intelligence, Imagination and Industry. Of these she thought imagination the most important. I’d copy her list and add Integrity. Many people struggle to maintain businesses in the arts; temptations exist to lower standards, or make bizarre promises. We are in the arts because we love the work and want to inspire others to love it as well. They won’t love it if they are given poor treatment, or disrespected.”

Rita Litton (from the book “The Actor’s Other Career Book,” by Lisa Mulcahy)
