It was fantastic to hear from a profesional actress things that you already know and learn some tools that will help you to improve your art. Thanks to Natalie Portman and all the Masterclass team.
I didn't know much about Natalie Portman before taking this masterclass. I really enjoyed her breakdown of how to behave as an actor: how to treat your coworkers, director, and others on set.
I enjoyed the section where she demonstrate improvising on using natural instinct to include props and the camera to a particular scene
Adore the empathetic approach! It teaches us each, as humans, that no matter our role or character in this life, love is the answer. :)
