In this brilliant Masterclass on acting Dr Sotimirin emphasizes the importance of discipline and commitment to the creative process. What is needed he says is a full and personal understanding of the script and the role of your character in it. For himself he works best on his own at night – reading, researching, thinking, learning lines and in general getting to internalise the story within himself. For him, being an actor is being a good storyteller and to be a good storyteller one needs to have discipline from within yourself, adopt the discipline of your profession, be committed, resourceful, and be willing to re-think your assumptions. You must remain relevant, acknowledge the sensibilities of different audiences. But most of all, he cautions, you must be humble. Humility opens doors and minds. Be willing to listen and learn from everyone.
