Right here. Not sure how it affects my acting. I'm normally pretty reserved so people are shocked when I act, since most of the stuff I act is pretty eccentric and energetic. I find acting completely different to any other form of communication, and in a lot of ways, a lot easier.

For me, I'm a much easier person to be around when I'm acting because I'm in character (even if I'm not in character to the extent of someone like a method actor... say... daniel day-lewis would be... it's just that I'm NOT me anymore, I'm more like who I'm pretending to be). I'm not this weird AS chick. I'm... an NT character.

Because none of the characters I've been have been AS.

I took a theater class freshman year that had a lot of acting involved. I found that how well I did the role really depended on what the role was. I generally found tragic roles easier than comic ones. However, I think my best performance all year was Peter in the final scene of "Zoo Story." In that situation, he's the one reacting more normally to the weird stuff Jerry is doing.

I love acting, but I'm not an actor. Took drama in middle school.

I do theater but, I don't have Aspergers.I have some illness but not sure what. I think ADHD and something else. I'm 16 but have figured out that acting will be my profession. I want to be a Broadway star and maybe do some movies. I'm going to an arts high school for theater for my Junior and Senior year(Just finished my Sophomore year). Acting is my life. I love people who act, I clique with them very well. Some of my best friends are actors or actresses. Some of them we look at each other as brothers and we're just always fooling around with each other.

I am not an actor and would be the worst one in world, only capable to represent myselff, and even though not convincingly. By the other way I wrote a play! :-)))

I think I can act, but I haven't really tried it. I've not really had anything to act.

While in Uni I did some acting. Was in a Shakespeare production, which is always a challenge.
I wasn't all that good at it, but it taught me how to use my voice (inflection) and my body (being aware of how I was standing and moving).

I've taken classes at school...I'm not sure how much possibly having AS has affected it. There was one time in class where I was having a really hard time focusing because my mind was on something else that was very negative and I've been told that I shrink back sometimes from partners or that I need to communicate better with them. And one time, a critique that I got was that my internal struggles were clear, but that I needed to work on the external more. The thing that I find interesting is that when I do scenes, it is easier for me to make eye contact, maybe because it's not me at that moment. I'm not sure. When I can concentrate well enough, it's exciting and fun.
