“Acting is illusion, as much illusion as magic is, and not so much a matter of being real.”
Laurence Olivier

“[the only acting advice he would give] What is acting but lying and what is good lying but convincing lying?”
Laurence Olivier
tags: acting, lie

“[in 1979] You must have - besides intuition and sensitivity - a cutting edge that allows you to reach what you need. Also, you have to know life - bastards included - and it takes a bit of one to know one, don't you think?”
Laurence Olivier
