Quotable: Harold Guskin

From How to Stop Acting by Harold GuskinĀ (Faber and Faber, 2003):

In rehearsal, the actor has to shatter any preconceived notion he may have about the character – defy it, until he knows what the character is not by trying out precisely those possibilities that seem ridiculous. The actor must not play it safe in rehearsal.
