Tuesday Nights means scene study at The Actors Space, and tonight I worked on a delightful scene from “The Bachelor”, a little movie starring Renee Zellweger and Chris O’Donnell.
The scene: a proposal gone awry. The characters: Travis Jones as Jimmy Shannon; myself as Anne Arden; Allison Costner as The Singer. The overall comment from Joe Palese: “Good Scene”!
Joe changed some of the blocking, but didn’t ask me make many changes. He suggested I take more time to discover that Jimmy does not want to marry my character, “That’s a close-up”, he said.
Next week in class, Travis and I bring back the scene with the changes that were made. I am excited to be working on a Romantic Comedy, it is a good medium for me. My classmates were very complimentary of the scene, which was also a good sign!
