Predictable and recurring elements of physiology and physiognomy exhibited by a character which can be duplicated by the actor in performance -- a case study of the character of Willy Loman in Arthur Miller's Death of a salesman.
An account of my experience acting is given, explaining how I incorporated several schools of acting and an exploration of physiology to aid my performance of Willy Loman in Arthur Miller's DEATH OF A SALESMAN. As a double major in Drama/Theatre and Biology, this project allowed the integration of two fields of study in which I have had ample background. This report also means to help other actors in the preparation and performance of other roles.
