  • Episode 16: Emotion with Detail
    Mar 9 2021

    Host Mark Steele and resident expert Dr. Dave Schneider, M.D., interview acting coach Warner Loughlin. She is the acting coach for modern icons like Ryan Reynolds and Amy Adams. Warner started her career as an actress, and during that time she was taught the method of substitution, where the performer takes his or her own past trauma and personal negative experiences and then relives them mentally and emotionally for the sake of the performance. Even though this method was taught by the greats such as Stanislavski and Meisner, it achieved inconsistent results. On one hand, you could produce an Oscar-winning performance, on the other, a complete emotional and mental breakdown. Warner knew that there had to be a better way to get beautiful and moving performances without the threat to an actor’s emotional, mental and physical wellbeing.
