in directing actors (especially known actors) have you encountered troubles in directing them? Tips to overcome the ego or lack of confidence in them believing in you? I know the usual advice. 1. Know your material 2. have a plan for each character 3. do your prepro homework I'm talking about when your on the set, and there's a ton to do and your actor isn't agreeing with anything you say. In fact, he or she is trying to tell you how to run your set. Thoughts?
