What is stage presence? Is it even important? Should an actor bother giving it thought? Presence IS important as it determines whether an audience will be captivated by your performance or not. Take Daniel Day-Lewis, Judi Dench, Christopher Walken, Brando, Viola Davis, Tom Hardy to name but a few – they all have presence – they all captivate their audiences in one way or another. It’s this presence that keeps their audiences and fans coming back time and again to see their work.
I firmly believe there are two types of presence – 1. charisma, and 2. the ability to be fully immersed in the life of the script. Some actors naturally have charisma whilst others find their presence through the latter and some have both. I’m going to share with you how to develop magnetic stage and screen presence in 4 practical tips so your audiences – whether that be a casting director at an audition or a member of the public – are so engrossed they don’t want your performance to end. That’s got to be a good thing right?
