Legendary actor Jonathan Pryce delivers a stage fright keynote to help young performers garner confidence. After a career on stage and the big screen, Pryce has managed to overcome his fears on stage by turning his attention outward. During his beginning in drama, Pryce found confidence in those around him who continually reassured his work and provided a positive external environment.
The second very frank piece of advice Pryce shares is to try being less selfish, meaning that actors need to remember that it is not all about themselves. Instead it is about what the actor is communicating to the audience and other characters, so they should be more preoccupied with that then themselves.
This stage fright keynote is filled with very helpful tips on performing from Jonathan Pryce.
