I had to learn it the hard way. I studied with Lee Strasberg
. Acting is not acting. It's being. If you have the kind of personality makeup where you can transform into being the character in that situation, it brings about authenticity. You get a feel of the situation, the line in a scene and where your hearts goes to in a scene and you always keep that in mind.
Armstrong was semi-retired from films, continuing to be active in off-Broadway theater, until retiring because of near-blindness.
