"People who think that acting is pretending really don’t understand the art. Acting is the study of authenticity. Of how to be real in extraordinary circumstances. And few environments are as extra-ordinary as a television studio or a courtroom. Everything I teach about communicating truthfully and wholeheartedly on a newscast or at trial I learned in my work and and training as an actor."
