The director/actor relationship is a fundamental and critical component of the filmmaking process. It plays a crucial role in shaping the overall quality and success of a film. As a director, if you don't understand your actor's process, know how to support them in reaching emotional depth or know how to allow your actors to live truthfully in a scene it will show on the screen and your movie will suffer.
