Something I have wondered about for some time now but was afraid to ask. Then while I was having Christmas dinner at my cousin’s house, someone else actually brought it up.
How do actors apparently methodically memorize so many words?
This could apply to many shows and movies. But for some reason I was thinking of Star Trek: the Next Generation.
There’s like, what, a couple hundred shows? And they have to memorize about 50 minutes of dialogue (accounting for commercials)? Assuming they use just rote memorization and still remember it to this day, that is a lot of (presently) inert information.
Again, how do they do it?
