Lin…we have to be careful with scripts and screenplays, too. We wouldn’t dare to tell Meryl Streep or Tom Hanks how to deliver a line. Also, we probably shouldn’t be telling Steven Speilberg how to plan a shot. A good rule of thumb about stage directions and line readings is to keep them to a minimum and include them only if you feel they are absolutely necessary.
