Learning your lines, it’s a skill of trade. A skill which everyone masters differently. Some actors may struggle to memorize lines (myself included) while other actors find it comes to them more naturally. Either way, if you’ve landed a role with several or more scenes to learn, you’ve probably thought at least one if not all of these things, while memorizing your script!
1) I’ll start this tomorrow…
2) Act one! Let’s just start with act one.
3) Why does my character have so many (or so little) lines!!!!
4) Maybe if I record myself and listen to it on repeat?
5) None of these words even look like words anymore…
6) Paraphrasing counts, right?
7) So close but so very far…
8) The offbook date is WHEN?
9) I could recite these lines in my sleep.
