NOTES ON ACTING, an intermittent journal about acting on stage and film, as well as in life.
I'm gonna see a production of Titus tonight! (I think it's a short Titus though--that doesn't help your case)
And what's wrong with tall? It just means that you don't have to work so hard at commanding the stage!Kay
Kay - no doubt, no doubt. But, these short dudes have a compelling ferocity to them born of some Napoleon complex-thing, where tall guys such as me often exude complacency. Sometimes they exude both ferocity AND complacency: e.g., Liam Neeson, whom I'm more than a little like.The short dudes also move better. We tall guys are a bit gangly or heavy-limbed. Neeson is a good example....Pre-rehearsal butterflies is all this is. My Marcus is a woman who's 5'11', though so we'll make a great looking pair of regal siblings.
