Information about relationships within acted scenes

In this video, Johan speaks about the relationship to the other characters in the scene. What this means is how you feel about the other person and who they are to you from your point of view.

As always, the key is to be as specific as possible. Find what it is about the other person that makes you feel a certain way. As soon as you see the other person through this relationship, you should on an emotional level know how you feel about them. You don’t want to have to think about it.

Make a clear choice. Vague and general ideas will always go out the window as soon as you get on stage and it’s time to perform.

And then your opinion can always change depending on what happens in the scene.
