“I am an actor in-development and I am working on a scene a month to improve my acting skills, this is a very great breakdown of how to create conflict in the character. It just so happened that I was working on a scene from Mr. Robot, Elliot and he is confronting a man about his sins. I was struggling with how to play this scene, but this video gave me insight and sparked ideas immediately that is going to help me define this role and hopefully act it a more interesting and truthful performance. Thank you.”
