This week we talk about playing a character who believes in something that you don’t. All three of us are performers at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival and we have to think about what our characters believe and if that belief differs from our own. Tim, for instance, plays a character who is Catholic. Molly and Nick haven’t spent so much time thinking about that sort of thing but they know their characters believe in fairies. Our conversation isn’t so much about being performers at the Festival as it is about being actors and how you come up with characters who are different from who you are. And do we read five answers from a listener? Of course we do!!!
