I went to a silent movie this past weekend. And the film had one actor playing several roles.
That was one of the big twists at the end of the flick– All three of those characters are actually the same guy! Dun dun DUN!!!
What an amazing actor? I mean, can you imagine all the work it takes to play three characters in a silent film? Just imagine all the voice work, the dialect crafting, cadence… All those things that define a character that you don’t need to do.
It’s great when the word “character” actor means you have an incredible make-up department.
