Breathing life into effort.
Actors have a cool gig. Aside from all the fame and stuff, they also get to work on projects. Each movie, play, or TV show is an opportunity to be another person, maybe in another time. Some actors get to be characters that live on in our imaginations. How cool is it that Christian Bale is Batman? Not many people get to be Batman. Regardless of any other roles he chooses to take, his Batman will persist. Actors finish a movie and the character they played lives on – outside of them. The effort they put into each role is encapsulated, either on film or in memories, and continues to do work even as the actor moves on to another project. It’s almost like they duplicated themselves.
