  • How actors and directors can explore character in a way that is safe and enriching for both;
  • How a director can balance the needs of their actors while maintaining other relationships on set;
  • The best way to deal with a director-actor relationship breakdown;
  • What directors most want from their actors;
  • What actors most want from their directors.
