Why Study the Meisner Technique? Maggie Flanigan Studio (917) 789-1599

One of the important aspects of a really well-trained Meisner actor and one of the things that I think Meisner’s technique really instills in you so that it’s second nature is your ability to be spontaneous. It is an incredibly vital part of an actor’s skill, your ability to act before you think.

When a Meisner actor is well-trained the ability to be spontaneous becomes second nature.

When that comes to working on a script, when that comes to being able to apply that to a scene, it is the difference between a hack actor and somebody that really knows what they’re doing and knows how to work.

Your freedom, your spontaneity, your ability to improvise in the moment with other actors on stage or on the screen is vital to your work. Being fresh, being surprising, being vulnerable is one of the important things that Meisner training will instill in you, you’re spontaneity.
