JillPoleFan565- maybe you could work on your accent a bit more, but well done all the same!

To both JillPoleFan565 (who I was trying to explain this to) and to Lu_valient (hi, Lu! :D ) I finally figured out what it is that I think would help you both some in acting as Jill Pole.

I think you are both sort of saying one line at a time, pausing, and then doing the next line, almost as though you are reading the book. I just mean that if you try to think of yourself as Jill, get into her mind, think of her lines not as 'line #1, line #2, line #3...' but as a train of thought, emotions, replies, suggestions...like she's having a conversation that she didn't plan to have...I think that would help. :)

Also JillPoleFan565, what accent were you using? I don't know if it will help you but I made an 'English 101' crash course on how to speak w/ a British accent, I'd love to have you see it, will give you the youtube link if I can get it put up there. :D

Lu

P.S. If I get my monologues up on youtube I will come back here and repost my resume (as it has been several weeks) and then I can include a link so everyone can see my acting and if I'd make a good Jill. :D

*edit* A_Narnian_Ship you look like you could be an older Polly (if she's only nine in the first one I don't think you would work, lol!) but maybe in LB!!! :ymapplause: Have a video of your acting? :D

i was using my own accent i only do this for fun i am not trying to get an audition through it like the other girls on youtube

also during most of mine other people are talking and they are at moments where i feel there should be a pause mine is memorized i am not reading if you notice they actually do flow together and the paused parts are either where someone else is talking or i feel there should be a pause i have been acting for a long time so i don't pause unless i feel it is needed

Jill_Pole_Fan565, I don't mean pauses as in between sentences, or catch-your-breath, or Eustace-is-speaking-but-I-have-no-one-to-say-his-lines type of thing. I mean that the dialogue was (in my opinion) sort of choppy at times. Please don't take offense! :) I hope you understand what I mean...

This sort of comment would be better done privately. I suggest you use PMs if you want to talk further on it.
