If you’ve ever seen Sir Anthony Hopkins deliver a thoroughly engaging monologue in a movie, you would think that he is a natural.
And you’d be forgiven for thinking that.
The truth is though, that a lot of work goes into it behind the scenes. The legendary actor has stated that he reads a script about 200 times before performing. In his own words, this is because it gives him a “tremendous sense of ease and the power of confidence”.
How much preparation are you putting into your work? Trust me, it will show.
