You can throw away the privilege of acting, but that would be such a shame. The tribe has elected you to tell its story. You are the shaman/healer, that`s what the storyteller is, and I think it`s important for actors to appreciate that. Too often actors think it`s all about them, when in reality it`s all about the audience being able to recognize themselves in you. The more you pull away from the public, the less power you have on screen.
