Zachary Fine Confessions of a Theater Actor

You have to be honest with yourself.

It’s not going to be an easy road. Know that. You may find you’re not funny, you don’t sing that well, you struggle memorizing dialogue quickly, or you doubt yourself more often than not and get in your own way. Guess what? You’re an artist and a human. You have values and flaws. You are a beautiful, complex mix of humanity and you have the privilege of being unapologetic about that if you choose to be so bold.

Being “perfect” is uninteresting, so forget about being right. Take yourself seriously enough that you are willing to listen when you’re uncomfortable, explore when you’re vulnerable, and choose to deepen your understanding of skills or practices that you want but don’t have yet. You are in control and no one but you can improve upon that spiritual and creative part of you that shines though most brightly when you are confident enough to let go of all the “what ifs” and outside expectations. Deliver you. That’s what you should be most proud to do.
