The Michael Douglas method: How 'Fatal Attraction' changed his acting approach
TORONTO - It wasn't until "Fatal Attraction" that Michael Douglas found his comfort zone as an actor. | The two-time Oscar winner, who plays an acting coach alongside Alan Arkin as his longtime agent in Chuck Lorre's new Netflix dramedy series "The Kominsky Method," says his own start to the craft was rocky. | "I was a terrible auditioner. I was a guy who had stage fright terribly, and for a long time in my career was not comfortable in front of the camera," Douglas, 74, recalled in a recent phone interview from his office in Northern Westchester County, N.Y. | "Somebody had advised me early in my career that the camera can always tell when you're lying, and I took that to heart and became a bit of a method actor, just sort of taking me down to the bare skeleton. Acting was painful."

Acting Summary

Impersonation of a fictional character

Acting

Acting is an activity in which a story is told by means of its enactment by an actor or actress who adopts a character—in theatre, television, film, radio, or any other medium that makes use of the mimetic mode. Acting involves a broad range of skills, including a well-developed imagination, emotional facility, physical expressivity, vocal projection, clarity of speech, and the ability to interpret drama. Acting also demands an ability to employ dialects, accents, improvisation, observation and emulation, mime, and stage combat. Many actors train at length in specialist programmes or colleges to develop these skills. The vast majority of professional actors have undergone extensive training. Actors and actresses will often have many instructors and teachers for a full range of training involving singing, scene-work, audition techniques, and acting for camera. Most early sources in the West that examine the art of acting (Greek: ὑπόκρισις, hypokrisis) discuss it as part of rhetoric.
