An excerpt from an interview recorded in 2010 with the late great Alan Rickman in which he gives his take on the importance of listening – essential for actors and just about everyone else. To wit:

What you have to say is completely incidental. All I want to see from an actor is the intensity and accuracy of their listening. And then what you have to say will become automatic.
