I watch a lot of movies and TV shows because characters build my world. I find myself sometimes "acting." There's something about acting that makes it so real, yes it depends on skill, but it also depends on how one can dig deep enough to unearth the deepest emotions. When I watch good actors act, it no longer is a movie, it becomes "truth." I become transfixed. I don't know these actors personally, but technology, emotions, and interest have stamped them hard unto my life.
