As an admirer of Johnny Depp as an actor, it has always been interesting to me how little formal acting training he has received. There have been other star-actors who intuitively could perfect their craft without a lot of coaching. Depp says that there has to be some of yourself in each part you do or it's not acting - it's lying. How many successful actors have been dismissed for "playing themselves?' So, I think there is something to bringing who you are to every role. After all, Depp says so.
AMERICAN SOUITH is almost wrapped. I will miss Mayor Winston Hibler of Liberty FL and his Panama hat. Coming up is my bit as a British tourist in PROFANITY-THE MOVIE.
