How an Actor needs to work?
The human being who acts is the human being who lives. That is a terrifying circumstance. Essentially the actor acts a fiction, a dream; in life the stimuli to which we respond are always real. The actor must constantly respond to stimuli that are imaginary. And yet this must happen not only just as it happens in life, but actually more fully and more expressively. Although the actor can do things in life quite easily, when he has to do the same thing on the stage under fictitious conditions he has difficulty because he is not equipped as a human being merely to playact at imitating life. He must somehow believe. He must somehow be able to convince himself of the rightness of what he is doing in order to do things fully on the stage.
The Actor should be completely carried away by the play, not noticing how he feels, not thinking about what he does, and it all moves of its own accord, subconsciously and intuitively.
To be an actor, one has to understand physical sensations around the emotional events. And that can make his performance charismatic.
Acting has been meant as living truthfully under imaginary circumstances.
