Cherry Jones: Just say the lines

Just say the lines

Tony Award-winning actress Cherry Jones visited Santa Clara on November 28 for a conversation on the craft of acting. Conducting the hour-long interview in the Fess Parker Studio was Scotty Arnold, a junior in Theatre and Music. Lauded as perhaps the finest stage actress of our age, Jones said it was at American Repertory Theater that she “learned how not to act,” to “just say the lines,” and to recognize “the power of stillness.” Jones also credits her mother for instilling in her the confidence and resolve that are necessary to succeed as an actor. “She told me, ‘Never confuse your self worth with your professional accomplishments.’” RH
