Day 8.
I always feel very responsible when I see actors learning their lines.
My lines.
I know what it involves: you have to take the words into your body, somehow. And they affect you.
You live with them. They take over your imagination: they take over your dreams.
And I'm responsible. It's down to me, partly, the effect these words have on them.
i don't want the lines I write to do them harm.
Just as i don't want them to harm the audience.
i sometimes think there's no-one but me believes this any more: but words have power. And writers have a moral responsibility for what we write.
