No thinking, no intelligence, no feelings... He was acting. He could not, or did not, connect with the character he was playing..... he was soulless... [/b]
Love it, Fansmom! Thanks for bringing that quote back. Bluebird and Fansmom, I think we have been spoiled by an actor who is the epitome of soul. Most acting pales in comparison to his.
Fansmom, as an aside, I have chosen A Moveable Feast for my local book club's May meeting, where I am the hostess. I can't wait to see what they all have to say about it.
