Did You Know?
On stage your job as actor is to present and show the story by your behavior, body language, and vocal work. In film, you musn't. You just have to be. You are...and it's mostly intuitive. The amount of characterization you do is very minimal. In fact, you try not to act at all. It's actually better that way, and it's taken me years to learn that.
Won the 1966 Tony Award (New York City) for Actor in a Drama for "Mark Twain Tonight".
