Masterclass: Approaching ‘Minor’ Characters – Tom Latter & Tobias Deacon

Are there particular ways to approach playing a so-called ‘minor’ character? How can you stand out from the crowd while not pulling focus? A practical workshop exploring how to breathe life into one-line messengers, steal a scene (in a good way) and deal with doubling, crowd scenes and not having any lines for ages…

“Presume not that I am the thing I was,
For God doth know, so shall the world perceive,
That I have turned away my former self;
So will I those that kept me company.”
