What’s your neutral face?

Last Monday in my acting class

a fellow student brought up the idea of a characters/actors neutral face

Or mask

What this refers to is

the face that one displays when we are simply being



in between

the expression on our face when we are

just sitting there

As an actor this can be an important tool


to know what this face looks like

but I think it’s equally important for us as people

as a tool

to be aware of

So what does your neutral face look like?


I used to think mine looked like this:


It really looks like this:



Be aware

Those times you think you’re giving a charming


bedroom eye

smile to the barista at Starbucks

you’re actually giving them the stinkeye

Or maybe you look like a yearning Brad Pitt

It’s just good to know the difference

Happy Monday!
