Laura: I would like to believe that I have surmounted the difficult part, and that really involved make-ups are no longer a stress. That's not to say that some days aren't better than others... but I would not turn down another role with involved make-up, provided it was deemed safe and not in any way harmful to my skin. Getting to do roles that require me to be involved in a long make-up process provides me with the starting ground in the transformation into a character. Once the physical change has taken place, it is much easier to act differently. The hard part is done, and all it takes is for the actor to breathe some life into that character. Also, it makes those human make-ups so enjoyable to prepare for - only one hour! Yipee!
