Personal Quote:

There's no such thing as The Method. The term "method-acting" is so much nonsense. There are many methods, many techniques. My father merely used a method of teaching based on the ideas originally propounded by [Konstantin Stanislavski]--self-discipline, how to think out a role and use imagination. That's all.
