Reflections on Actors

FTT’s Simone Knox has recently completed a triptych of short reflections on the work of actors for Flow, an online journal of television and media studies hosted by the University of Texas at Austin. The first blog post explores the presence and success of British actors in contemporary US film and television fiction. The second one considers the situation and experience of minority identity actors in the creative industries of contemporary Britain. The final reflection pays attention to the work of the dubbing actor, arguing that dubbing needs to be understood as a creative act of performance. These reflections are part of Simone Knox’s ongoing research into the lived experience of screen culture.
