Brad Maule (Actor, teacher, writer of Glenn’s Gotta Go) invited me to come back and work with his students at Stephen F. Austin University towards the end of filming “Glenn’s Gotta Go”. What an honor. I asked Tyler Arnold (Dustin “Glenn’s Gotta Go”) to assist me on that day. He and I had done so many wonderful exercises together, to make discoveries for our characters and the relationship of mom and son. I said “yes” of course.
So this month I worked with these talented, open and willing students. It was a true gift to share some of the highlights from my many years of training with so many great teachers. There are two sayings that came to mind as I left this blessed experience. “You can’t keep it unless you give it away” and “If you can teach it then you truly know it”. I hope those actors got as much as I got out of our day together.
One more time I am reminded that I am always more blessed when I give than when I receive. Be a giver. And love others the way you want to be loved.
