Depending on the style of the film you’re in you’ll employ different techniques. The method was made chiefly and purely because of film acting, but it’s not always useful in the sense that you can’t employ that kind of approach to everything you do. If you’re in a cartoon movie or one of these superhero films, there’s an element of grotesqueness that you have to bring to your performances sometimes to fill up whatever the cartoon characters are. It depends on the style of the film that you’re in.

That’s, I would say, a good arguement for going to theatre school the way I did. It’s because they chuck you in so many different kinds of plays and you realise that you need to learn different kinds of acting to pull off different kinds of plays that you’re gonna be in.

Brando said that the difference between the two (stage acting and film acting) was on stage you have to show the character, you have to demonstrate your thoughts, show the character. On screen, you just have to think it. It’s in your mind. You allow the camera to experience the character by giving access to their inner world that you have.
