Shatner also seems to be a twatwaffle. Harrison Ford is a gruff fucker. I think I might get along with Mark Hamill though.
I think part of it is that Hamill seems very accessible -- he puts himself out there online and at cons and seems smart, savvy, great sense of humor, doesn't take himself that seriously, has passion over good things / for humanity. Some of the other folks are more reclusive, so we don't know who they are, and aren't as transparent.
Iâ€™m remembering why theater culture was such a turnoff for me. Shame, because I so loved acting, but so despised the people that formed the culture
I think you have to have a pretty big ego (good or bad) to endure all the jockeying for roles, and to trust your instincts / believe all the stuff that you think you can sell on stage, and also the drama chops. So you are going to get some pretty big personas there to deal with. There are good apples and bad apples, but you have to have a real tenacity and make your presence known, I think.
Film is nice because it leaves more room for the introverts, since the cameras / presentation style allows for more nuanced / low-key people to shine.
I could be completely wrong, but that's the first thing I think...
My nuance is in my head and what I think; I can't exude it very well physically. I either fail, or it sucks all my energy out. I sometimes have people ask me to repeat something because my voice just is not very loud as well. But I admire really great performers, as something I cannot do well myself.
