I didn`t go to acting school, only to normal school. I`m not for acting schools because I suspect that the majority of the teachers are there because they can`t find work as actors or because they think they can teach people to act but haven`t had much experience themselves in the field. What I mean is that my skepticism derives from the fact that I believe that for an actor it`s much more important to learn with the audience . . . the audience is the real teacher and it`s the audience that has taught me what I know. The audience`s reaction tells me what I need to do, just as the audience`s reaction makes you into a first-rate star. It`s easy: the important thing is that a sufficient number of people, an audience, in a sufficient number of countries is willing to spend money to go see this actor. At this point the movie producers interfere and ask you to work on this or that film. And then one becomes an actor with international success depending on the public`s reaction.
One day I should like to live in Ireland. I love the Irish, the more I see of other races the more I believe the Irish are the only real people left, and apart from that they have space and clear air in which to wander and think and to feel free.
LONDON (AP) -- "Death Wish" director Michael Winner, a British filmmaker, restaurant critic and bon vivant, died Monday. He was 77.
Winner's wife, Geraldine, said he died at his London home after an illness.
Winner's 30 movies included three "Death Wish" films starring the late Charles Bronson. Many of his features sit at the schlockier end of the spectrum, but he also worked with Hollywood icons including Marlon Brando, Burt Lancaster, Robert Mitchum and Faye Dunaway.
