What do actors do?

‘Actors do strange and sometimes ridiculous things in pursuit of mastery, a fact that they and most audiences take in their stride because it is understood that actors are engaged in a somewhat ridiculous, if also completely magical, task - psychologically and physically inhabiting other, usually imaginary people in sometimes quite extreme imaginary situations, on command, while maintaining enough of a foothold in reality to revert back to normal whenever they’re told to.’ Jordan Kisner
