HOT PERFORMANCE TIP #6
SCRIPT PREPARATION: VARIED LINE DELIVERY
•When learning lines: try whispering, singing, and yelling them, as well as speaking them fast or slow to familiarize yourself with the many different ways your dialogue can be delivered. This step increases your flexibility and helps you connect to the potential intentions of the words. So if a casting director throws you a real ‘head spinner’ of alternative direction, you’ll be ready for it.
