Who Am I?

On the weekend of the 2nd Women’s March, I thought I’d start this week by publicly acknowledging something I ‘borrowed’ from a woman…

Somewhere down the line, I heard Kerry Washington uses this technique called ‘Who Am I?’  As you’ll see below, it’s a mini cheat sheet that, for actors at least, can quickly put you into the mind of the character you’re playing (and also help you recognize the things you have in common with who you’re playing and the things you don’t).

I use this in 90 percent of my auditions to put me in the right ‘shoes’ so to speak; it’s been incredibly helpful (so thank you Kerry.)

For today though, I’ll answer the questions in my own voice, so whether you’re new to me or known me for awhile, maybe you’ll learn something. Ah, one more caveat: don’t think about it too much, the gut answer is probably the closest to ‘who you are’.

Enjoy.
