This week’s drop-in: Character Charisma
Brought to you by Elliott.
**Please note the change of venue: we are back at the Malt Cross!**
A great actor can play anyone in any situation, but you don’t often see people queuing round the block to see them. We’re usually drawn instead to those stars who drip with charisma, like Al Pacino, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Tom Cruise, George Clooney, Will Smith and Vinnie Jones (really…?) who seem to play almost the same character every time, eg Al Pacino shouting at people as a cop/lawyer/football coach, George Clooney being super-smooth and charming, Tom Cruise is Tom Cruise in every film, and Dwayne Johnson grins endearingly through every role. They play themselves and people fall in love with the character of them. That’s what makes them stars.
This week you’ll get a certain character or characteristic drawn from my magic bag of characters. This will be with you all evening! Your challenge is to merge that characteristic with yourself and use your innate charm to generate charismatic power for a series of 2-4 person open scenes.
Watch very carefully who is who as there will be a prize at the end!
