2) Reading comprehension.

I am an actor and I like much more working in the theatre to working on a film or on a TV series. When I have a part in a play, I spend a long time learning my lines and then there is a long period of rehearsal with the other actors before the first night. The good thing about a play, however, is that you are standing up on the stage with a real live audience just a few metres away from you. At the end of the play, if they have enjoyed it, the people all clap and you really feel good.It’s interesting to read the reviews in the newspaper, but it’s the people who are there who really matter. Working in film or television, however, you spend too much time waiting in the studio while the camera crew make all the technical arrangements .You sometimes have to do the same bit over and over again until the director is satisfied with your performance. Then it is months or even years before the film or programme appears on the screen .By then, you’ve forgotten all about it and you’re in the middle of doing the next thing, anyway.
