"Acting is living truthfully under imaginary circumstances" - Sanford Meisner

"I love acting. It is so much more real than life."

Oscar Wilde

"I feel ghostly unreal until I become somebody else again on the screen."

Peter Sellers

"Without wonder and insight, acting is just a trade. With it, it becomes creation."

Bette Davis

"I benefit from the Mr. Potato Head syndrome. Put a wig and a nose and glasses on me, and I disappear."

Phil Hartman

"It was only when I realized how actors have the power to move people that I decided to pursue acting as a career."

Cate Blanchett

"As actors, for the most part we're trained to know where we've come from, where we're going, what the truth and meaning is behind every scene."

Naomi Watts
