It's good to Read A Book.

Dear sweet readers, a book is a story, and a story is a vision based on someone's personal dream and private imagination. Long time ago, story tellers used to depend on the word of mouth to keep their stories, and characters alive. They used their stories to teach lessons, and give people examples of what's right from wrong. In today's society people don't realize how important a book is. Many become fans of the actors, and overlook how significant the character is.

What's the difference between an actor, and a character?

The actor, you can see with your eyes whether on stage, on TV or the big screen whle the character you can visulize with your mind, and heart. Fans are overwhelmed with their loyalty, and love to certain actors, and forget the line between real, and fiction by associating the actor, and character as one. The fans tend to lock the actor into the character's frame which later becomes real hard to break him/her out of it. Some producers take advantage of this weakness, turn it into "RATINGS", and ratings means more money for a fact..

I believe as a director as well as a writer that it is possible for any actor to play a certain character as long as his described features are close enough, and compatible with the chosen character You can admire actors for their exquisite performance, and appreciate their talent when they bring a character in a story to life.. But you can never inssist on the fact that no one else can take that role. You must take into consideration the beauty of writing, and the echo of its meaning in your mind, and heart. Only then, you'd really appreciate what's the importance of reading a book.

      I find that I am able to lose myself in a book easier than in a movie or show. Reading is one of my favorite things to do.
