I’d be willing to bet it’s almost universally agreed upon that Meryl Streep is one of the greatest actors who has ever lived. Wouldn’t you agree? So why not learn from the best with a fun little series? In Masters With Meryl we will take a look at some favorite performance clips and see if we can all learn a little something, (while we bow down, of course).
So it’s funny, as I started to watch some great Meryl clips online, I realized I was having to try very hard to not get sucked into the scene and stay focused on my task of looking for her “work”. This is the sign of great acting, isn’t it? When you forget all about the craft of it and get swept into the story. She’s so good!
The first ever Masters With Meryl is going to focus on Persons, Places, Objects and Events. If you missed my video series on what that means and how to use it in your acting, click here.
The scene above is from The Devil Wears Prada where Meryl plays Miranda Priestly, the high and mighty editor-in-chief of Runway magazine. In this scene you’ll see some fun examples of how Meryl creates very specific relationships to every single person, place, object and event that she and the other characters mention. Check it out.
