Being creative and realizing our talents involves a lot of self-awareness and respecting who we really are, including our unconscious depths. In an interview about her film “Flightplan,” Jodie Foster commented, “When you’re a dramatic actor you look for films that hit you in the gut, in this unconscious place that really moves you, and then you can’t help but make the movie because it’s something that you fear and you want to know more about it.” She added, “I think that every film that I do, even though it might not relate to me autobiographically, has some very personal pull in there and there are questions that I ask myself that I can’t really resolve any other way.”

A character is a person in a narrative work of arts (such as a novel , play , television show/series, or film ). [ 1 ] Derived from the ancient Greek word kharaktêr , the English word dates from the Restoration , [ 2 ] although it became widely used after its appearance in Tom Jones in 1749.

[ 4 ] Character, particularly when enacted by an actor in the theatre or cinema , involves "the illusion of being a human person." [ 5 ] In literature, characters guide readers through their stories, helping them to understand plots and ponder themes.

[ 4 ] Since the 19th century, the art of creating characters, as practised by actors or writers, has been called characterisation . [ 4 ]
