Read from the Book

One thing I have noticed in my career is every person in front of the camera wants to do their best. Let’s face it, who doesn’t – we all do, whether we are Prince Charles or Christopher Plummer, or even myself – I like to look good on camera too. I feel that most people whoever they are, the so-called people “up there” presidents or monarchy or whatever, want to be loved, they all want to look good at whatever they do, and they do not want to feel threatened by anything negative. That’s basic human nature. So if you can strip people down so they do not feel threatened by you, you can connect with them on a human level. Even more important is that they think you are really curious about what they think. These elements boil down to honesty, sincerity, and curiousity.
