    Well, I don't necessarily mean living persons rather
    characters brought about by the imagination of the
    actor. Isn't method acting used to give a better basis
    of imagination by developing the character to higher
    extent. But I'm not an actor myself, perhaps you can
    fill me in on what acting is all about then?
