"Actors don't direct other actors."

Said to me by my acting instructor this past week. And this is why I shouldn't be an actor.

I sometimes feel badly for my scene partners in my acting class. The fact that I have no qualms being bossy probably ranks high on the list of reasons why I can be an effective babysitter. Or another way to spin it, I delegate. I don't always turn this "quality" off when interacting with my peers. I even have a tendency to teach my classes sometimes.

So maybe directing would be more my cup of tea.

There is way to instruct without being bossy.

I REALLY want to hear Fisher's take on this.

Where did I miss the leap from advertsing to acting/directing?

Just discovering new outlets for my creativity. They all end up inextricably (also one of my favorite words!) connecting with one another and building on and inspiring each other, but that's a post all of its own and will probably use the word "energy" a lot.

gf - even if I am instructing without being bossy, because I like to think I can do that too, is that really the role of an actor?

"Not the role of the actor?" I would say it depends entirely on the situation, the person in question and what was said.
