I guess it is b/c I'm an actor and a writer(and a wannabe director) that I really think about these things but I wonder why you people love to act? Do you get joy out of having the chance to get across the writer's idea, is it about the challenge of doing so to the point where you think the writer had it in his/her mind, is it about the challenge of feeling something different, and expressing that to other people, is it about getting up in front of the audience? I just wonder what reasons mostly drive you? Do you think about the writer at all? I especially wonder about hollywood actors, because it seems a lot of them are really in it for the fame and fortune and nothing else, a lot of them take no pride in their pursuit, and don't even care if they do well... just wondering!
