Glimpse Behind the Curtain
No one wants to know how the sausage is made.
The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.
- Albert Einstein
Imitating, borrowing, or being inspired by a bit of business from other people and other actors is ok. It will be different when you do it because the other person isn't you. But even in behind the scenes interviews, it is not always necessary to reveal your inner process, the way you got there, wherever "there" is.
The audience doesn't need to know it was substitution in rehearsal about when your childhood pet past away that made the poignant moment. You need to know, but not all mysteries gain by being revealed to the spectator. At the same time, no need to be excessively guarded. Balance, between giving a glimpse of how the magic is made, and the sleight of hand to not give away the trick/s seems a good idea.
