@joycek Stage plays are the ultimate test of acting skill in my opinion and if Anne couldn’t get that right, then no, don’t come back because that means her acting is still not up to par. Yes, life experience does help, but not in every case….it depends on the person…some people just might not be cut out for acting and no amount of life experiences will help them….to me, Anne seems to be one of those people because her acting in the past was pretty bad (like “cringe-worthy” bad) and by the looks of it, things haven’t gotten any better. Both series mentioned were memorable, but as others had mentioned, it wasn’t really because of her….
@joycek That’s true. We all understand after hindsight. At the time it was hard for us to determine what is most important without an experienced mentor at that age. That’s why educated parents usually prepare their children in the best way possible. When I was younger I just chose the toughest subjects for A Level which were unrelated to each other and ended up having a torrid time. In hindsight should have picked a subject of interest and then subjects related.
