‘Method Acting’ is an umbrella term for the different methodologies and techniques of acting.
Method Acting is most associated with Lee Strasberg (1901-1982), master-teacher and artistic director of The Actors Studio. Practitioners of Strasberg’s technique are referred to as “method actors”.
A method actor is actually one who is disciplined, self-aware and able to sensitively approach his work systematically by using the technique(s) that works best for him.
Method Acting equips the actor with a consistent and efficient structure to their work. A methodical approach enables actors to readily access their external talents and internal abilities to “behave truthfully under imaginary circumstances”.
