The relationship between director and actor is one of the most sacred in all of filmmaking. Both director and actor are artists, and together they collaborate on a project that is bigger than either one of them. This project will also include many other collaborators, from producers to screenwriters to cinematographers, composers, other actors, designers, and crew members. A director is responsible for balancing relationships with all these team members, but the relationship between a director and actor presents unique opportunities and challenges.
