It’s weird — it’s one thing to do a reading when you don’t know the other actors in the room and you can just dive in as an actor and you know, get to the intimate parts, and feel separate somehow. It gives you this kind of false sense of strength, just the fact that nobody really knows each other and you’re just there as an actor. And there’s something about knowing people and getting to that intimate place that makes it more, kind of, awkward, and you can get quite giggly and childish.
