From documentary Muse of Fire British actor and director Mark Rylance talks about the frustration of table reads. How important it is to get up and act, and practice. Not sit around and talk.
"We've only got four weeks, five weeks. What the hell are we doing, sitting around, planning things. We need to practice! We need to practice. Because in five weeks...they're in the audience with every reason not to believe us... We need EVERY skill we have to bring them into the play and let them experience it live. And feel something."
