    Depth of Characters

    Hello, teachers.

    "I like the actor because of his great acting skills and his depth of characters over the course of his career."

    Does the phrase "depth of characters" make sense in the above sentence?

    Thanks for your help.

    Re: Depth of Characters

    That doesn't work for me. I would say:
    "I like that actor because of his great acting skills and the depth of the characters he has played over the course of his career."

    en_buff, there is no need to write a new post just to say "Thank you" or to quote our replies back to us. It makes us think there is new information or a follow-up question and we spend time opening the thread. Your click on the "Thank" button is all you need to do to save everybody's time.
