    Cool Be able to express

    I read in a headline:

    "Be able to express emotions through actors really fascinates me"

    Which one would it be the most correct way to say it:

    1) Being able to express emotions through actors really fascinates me"
    2) To be Be able to express emotions through actors really fascinates me"

    Anyway, is "Be able..." a common accepted way to express in Press ?

    Thanks

    Re: Be able to express

    Was there any internal punctuation in the headline? It doesn't make sense as it stands.

    Re: Be able to express

    I can hear a movie director saying:
    "Being able to express emotions through actors really fascinates me"

    An actor would say:
    Being able to express emotions through acting really fascinates me"

    The "Be able" does not make sense.
