In developing my own persona, I learned a lot from Welles.
He had the 'power of conviction' that could have you believing the most preposterous things for the duration of the performance; he had suspension of disbelief down to a fine art.
A true actor through and through.


Wells was blessed with an incredible presence. He could get away with things that most of could not. His very form was commanding! The dramatic was so natural for him.

Now take another performer, Mac king for example..another master..but in order for him to make that effect successful, he would have to take a whole different approach.

I suppose the secret is to know and understand what your gift is, and don't try to be someone you are not.

There is and ever will be only one Orson Wells,

few performers have the commanding aura that he possessed.



A genius, pure and simple. With very high standards. There was not one single bottle of Cabernet he would let you purchase before its time.
