    Smile You will not see me

    Hello,

    A certain actor is explaining about his role.

    "My character is a real scumbag, sleazeball, massively
    insecure weirdo. A real, sort of, bottom-feeder lawyer.
    If you buy popcorn during my bit, you will not see me."

    I am not sure why he says "you will not see me" in the last
    sentense. Is it because his scene is too short, or his scene is
    too disgusting?

    Thank you,
    Tara

    I'd say that his part in the scene is very brief.

    An actor friend of mine used to say 'Blink and you'll miss me' when referring to this sort of part.

    Hello BobK,

    Thank you so much for your comment.

    I'd imagine it would be exciting to see a person whom you know
    personally on the stage.

    Thank you,
    Tara

    Well it was exciting when he was a star at the National Youth Theatre along with Helen Mirren, but it's less exciting now he's in his mid-fifties and only makes the occasional TV commercial!
