I was a child unaware of immortality or souls. Sat through the Sunday sermons while the priest said, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, says the Lord God, who is and who was, and who is to come. The Almighty.”
I sensed immortality as the same priest also said, “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.”
The next day I went to watch a movie. An intense fighting scene and the hero died. I cried, for he looked charming. The very next day I watched him on the T.V set. “Mom, he is alive. He died yesterday.” I yelled and thought of Easter and resurrection.
But my mom said, “He was acting. He is an actor. He is alive.” But still I argued with no facts by my side. And my mom emphasized on the word…acting. So, I thought actors act and don’t die.
Rats found their new home with us so rat traps were set to hunt them down. One day, I saw a dead rat and he didn’t jump back to life so it was clear that life was mortal for everyone.
Age didn’t matter much for a school girl. The fact was death would come.
Here is a list of my favourite movies: The sound of music, My fair lady, Singing in the rain, Matrix, Inception, The Shawshank Redemption, The notebook, Titanic and then I like all Disney movies but my all time favourite is Bambi and The lion king.
Yes, I’m just like you – I love watching movies. I haven’t thought about acting for a long time though (as a child I often thought of becoming an actor). Although, I would love to say that I do posses a little bit of talent like any other average person but acting…now…let me think.
Today seems to be the day as WordPress has given us the opportunity to show our acting skills and I’m waiting to showcase my talent in the movie.
A great movie is a combination of great actors, moving story line, some realistic characters and of course there is massive art of direction and a lot more other things. Me and acting…think about it after watching our dear friend Phoebe from Friends in this episode…I would do the same thing…even worse…and the movie will never hit the theaters or if it did I’m sure I was not there. Here is the video clip. Laugh and Smile!
