'make a scene as strong as it can be, it will make you shine'

From an interview of Sam Golzari and Tony Yalda (they are in the film American Dreamz, which I liked a lot):
Golzari: Something I learned when I was working with Hugh and Dennis: I noticed they were storytellers, first and foremost. There was a scene where Hugh had an idea for Dennis to walk back and start looking at this giant TV screen. It upstaged Hugh, but it made the scene work better. A lot of times as young actors we feel we need to do things to be seen. But you realize that if you can make a scene as strong as it can be, it will make you shine. And that's why those actors have been working for 20 years: They understand that
