Photos Of David Morrissey Masterclass

This is a selection of some of the photographs taken at an actors masterclass that David Morrissey gave at "Masterclass" at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in London in January. David talked about his acting, which included a question and answer session. David talked in great detail about his method for developing the characters he plays in theatre, film and TV productions. He explained and showed how he keeps all his research notes in books (which can be seen in some of the photos) for each character he plays. This includes a brief history of the person. This then allows to refer back to his notes any time he needs to during the rehearsal stage for a play of during the filming of scenes.
