I recently gave a bad performance and it was the most painfully embarrassing thing to have come my way in a long time.
Nobody likes to do bad work but I think for us creative souls, striving to be simultaneously vulnerable and courageous in all we do, it stings that little bit more. I'd like to talk about this pain, the pain of delivering a bad performance. I don't feel we talk about this all that often, and I think this is damaging to both ourselves and our fellow actor buddies. We know, intellectually, no one's life is an endless highlights reel, but it can often seem like it's just us grappling with the less appealing bits.
