Our interview continues below with instructor Colten Blair —
What kind of roles do you prefer?
Like most actors, I prefer roles that somewhat align with who I am, but who then stretch me emotionally. If you have a pretty solid understanding of who a character is at the beginning, it feels more real, but if you are then able to take what the character is going through and explore how it resonates with you, that’s where the real joy and work comes from. In the end it’s an exercise in empathy which is one of the best feelings in the world.
