I think that its great when you're so into character and really transform yourself from toes to nose that the public has trouble making themselves believe that you're jsut an actor. I debuted my new character this season and it was so good to hear from patrons trying to run from me saying "oh my god shes so friggin creepy" or "holy shit she's like the realest one."
I think the trick is to create your character and never leave a stone unturned. From the movements of your fingertips to the way you blink your eyes to how you move and speak. I think the key to realisim is to really get into someones psyce that this is who you are and that they should with good reason be afraid of you. You have to look at them and force them to believe in you and the character you are.
