The Actors


By Elia Kazan

“I will take my rightful place on stage and I will be myself. I am not a cosmic orphan. I have no reason to be timid. I will respond as I feel; awkwardly, vulgarly, but respond.

I will have my throat open, I will have my heart open, I will be vulnerable. I may have anything or everything the world has to offer, but the thing I need most, and want most, is to be myself.

I will admit rejection, admit pain, admit frustration, admit even pettiness, admit shame, admit outrage, admit anything and everything that happens to me.

The best and most human parts of me are those I have inhabited and hidden from the world. I will work on it. I will raise my voice. I will be heard.”

One must develop their own method of preparation. The students will strengthen their body and mind connection and develop the ability to focus on the full sensory terms of many objects and subjects.

The Actors Vow is a pledge for Actors to be their most authentic self. We quite often try to perform something the way we think it should be, rather than just being. It is probably the hardest obstacle an artist young and mature faces, but by taking this vow, you can begin to embrace all the wonderful parts that make you–YOU! And that is who we want to watch either on stage or in a film or television show.


Create, Give, and Live.
