I was a Cockney boy and obviously didn’t fit anybody’s idea of what an actor was supposed to be, so I decided to put together elements that added up to a memorable package. El principal punto por el que me gustó tanto este recorrido sobre el cine y la actuación es que no lo está diciendo un fulano cualquiera, lo está diciendo un ganador de la Academia, que no sólo ha incursionado en el teatro, sino también en la televisión y por supuesto, en el cine. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Caine talks about being given the part for Zulu stating that the director's wanted a posh actor, someone that spoke very upper class for the role.

Rather than try explaining everything with endless details, Michael Caine just gives it to the reader plain and simple, which is the reason why i truly appreciate this book.In this book actor Michael Caine describes being a leading actor in films, he says that his job is the carry the entire film and give life to the filmmaker’s vision. An instalment of the six-part BBC Acting series, this drama masterclass led by Michael Caine looks at the art of acting for the big screen.

I was hoping for more insight on techniques in front of the camera - similar to Michael Caine's great acting masterclass from 1987 (I believe), which can be found on YouTube. I burst with excitement when I got the role and was sweaty and nervous; convinced I was going to blow it - and this book helped me through it. His first major starring roles, beginning in the 1960s, include 'Zulu,' 'The Ipcress File,' and 'Alfie. Caine describes the vast differences between theatre acting and film acting, and the importance of the close-up camera.Nevertheless, the spectator will still react to what is on the screen emotionally, though, for films like this, it is less of an escape from reality, more a learning experience. This book is easy to read and full of interesting information about acting, the film world and technical information as well as personal stories by Michael Caine. The author also goes into the importance of professionalism and behavior on and off set with members of the cast and crew, as well as the Do's and Don'ts of how to deal with troublesome actors and directors, as well as dangerous stunts.

When sitting around set, waiting for the lighting professionals to make it just right, I'll turn to my fellow actors and say: "We're paid to wait. Mr Caine knows exactly what he’s doing and his advice is the most helpful I’ve found so far on acting for the camera. I've been fascinated by filmmaking in recent years (especially after watching the Korean drama Alchemy of Souls) and want to learn as much as possible about what goes on behind the scenes. I actually have no imminent plans to appear in a movie, so I didn't really need the advice given here.The film world allows the viewer to feel a heightened sense of excitement and participation with the fictional characters. I bought it for my 15 year old and expected him to say it it was dated - and, sure, it is - but the little tips and tricks that Caine delivers to his young student actors (including a young and posh Celia Imrie) are exquisite. Michael Caine teaches the art of movie acting to five young actors, who perform scenes from Alfie (1966), Deathtrap (1982) and Educating Rita (1983). Caine uses humor and personal experiences from the start to the height of his career to impart knowledge about the do’s and dont’s of the acting business.
