Coffeebreak Nuggets


Coffeebreak is a time to unwind and get in touch with actors’ processes. This week, our guest was Thabo Rametsi and these are his nuggets of wisdom.

  • Watch and Listen to people without saying a word.
  • Observing human behaviour is learning from everyone and paying attention.
  • Pay attention to the character in words chosen to build it.
  • Enjoy doing the work you do.
  • Regardless of your background, you can learn everything you want in life. That is what the “f**k you” in me has done.
  • Get inspired to push yourself in times of “No’s.”
  • No one got into the Art Craft by accident.
  • It takes 6 Yes’s to get a part and a 1 “No” to lose it.
  • Not only talent will get you higher. Effort and hard work also contribute.
  • Be accountable for yourself.
  • Don’t try to be an actor, let the words affect you and never take them for granted.
  • We all have different coping mechanisms. Don’t compare yourself with anyone.
  • Separating yourself is important at some point.
  • Control what you can, put in effort, knowledge and be ready.
  • Always be prepared, always be ready, the moment will find you.
  • Fail Forward.
  • We mostly fight for happiness, keep fighting and appreciate the moments when they arrive.
  • Art is Propaganda.
  • If you can tell a story and not try to act, you can be considered an actor.
  • The best way to choose a monologue, is to go with any that the words affect you, feel the words.

Catch Coffeebreak every second Sunday on the Actor Spaces Instagram live at 17h00.
