The art of acting has always aroused a sense of mystery about its execution. What goes on in the actor’s mind while performing in front of the camera? How do they emote layered and complex emotions while being truthful to the character? The secret lies in surrendering to the procedure with utmost honesty. Yet there are times when the actor feels blocked and frustrated and cannot deliver. Actors are constantly urged to find themselves so they can observe the similarities and contradictions within the portrayal of the character and hence can understand better. Such a paradoxical nuance, right?
The whole agenda of acting is to pretend at the level of belief that both audience and the actor harmonize the intricated emotions and story. But every actor is different and unique. Some are method actors, while some believe in their instincts. Some actors do plenty of homework to understand the character, whereas others are spontaneous. But all actors are united at one point to deliver a natural and realistic performance and make it believable for the audience. Aiming to hook the audience with his breakthrough performances Steven Ciceron acts majestically.

It might seem like Ciceron always wanted to be an actor. Well, that’s not the case. Ciceron is a trained psychologist.
