Next... You are doing so great! Almost there.
Can you examine the character catherine, look at the story, can you see how beautiful she is?
Can you tell me how this character looks like from point of view of different people- partner, family, colegue, stranger etc. can you tell if there is an actor 'me' that plays character character? How about the script?
Just examine the story itself, how it works, not focusing on content.
Examining the character Catherine, she looks like she has many character traits, things she likes, preferences, habits, interests, and this can look a bit different from different peoples point of view i.e a boss at work might see a different character from her husband at home or her best friend or her child might see her differently than her mother would or the people she meets through her work would view her differently than her sister. Everybody seeing differently depending on the role she is in with them. The particular role shapes what she looks like from the different people's viewpoint.So Catherine,s character is playing lots of different roles in the story.... woman, wife, daughter, mother, friend, colleague, team member, citizen,sister, in -law....and many more and these show the character having many different aspects when she is seen from all these perspectives.
Can I tell if there is an actor ' me' that plays Catherine's character?
The script of the story of Catherine's character is playing out all by itself,there is no "me" doing something and the character traits are shaped by the different roles as she responds to the particular environment she is in, which can be influenced by the role at the time e.g. whether at work or at home. The mind has given the character multiples of labels which are ever expanding and exhausting! Just as the mind has labelled everything that happens and that there is a "I" doing it , the mind has labelled the character is "me".
What a freeing thought this is, wow from being so identified with the roles.....
