Practice makes perfect! When I first attempted to tackle my lines and the character that was assigned to me I was a little apprehensive, because it was new and different, and to be honest I do not have that much acting training/experience. When I ran through my lines out loud the first few times, I sounded robotic and complacent. I was in my comfort zone. But then I began to listen and observe my fellow casts members run through their lines. I was blown away by their talent. So I said to myself, "Hey I want to be better!" So I went home and practiced. I went through my lines slowly, visualized how the words made me think and feel and then said my lines with intention using my whole self not just my voice. The next time I went to rehearsal and did my lines, I received a different reaction from the cast. I could tell they were pleased with my improvement and they were proud of me, which made me feel great and made me want to continue to be better. I know now that I still have a long way to go, and it's important to keep in mind that you can always improve as an artist. Your performance and skill set needs to grow and change to be an amazing artist, no matter how great you already are. I am ready to change, grow and practice, but I have to say I am proud of myself for improving and realizing some of my potential.
