Actor! What do you know about death?
The mechanics of cheap melodrama!
You can't do death!
ActorOn the contrary,it's what we do best.We have to exploit
whatever talent is given to usand our talent is for dying.We can die heroically, comically,ironically, sadly, suddenly, slowlydisgustingly, charminglyor from a great height.Audiences know what to expect,and that is all they areprepared to believe in.- Tom Stoppard (1966)
