Discomfort is the Comfort

It's not an accident this echoes "the obstacle is the path."

And that's the thing with acting that people don't understand, that the discomfort is the comfort. And that's what most actors, they don't want to feel uncomfortable, and when you kind of allow yourself to be in the moment, and be surprised, 'cause there's no way you can predict who your character is. Just like you can't predict who you are, you know, at any given time, you don't know how you're gonna react to any given circumstance. But in order to be in the moment and let yourself be loose, you have to be brave enough to be uncomfortable and not judge a moment.

- Viola Davis
