Often, the Hero isn’t the most interesting character. The people we remember are the Villains! You know, the people we love to hate? But what makes a villain a villain? Why do we hate them? Why do they seem to be having so much fun being evil? In this course, we’ll dive into the background, archetypes, psychology, and nuances of these wonderfully, horrible characters and let you work on scenes with some psychotic and iconic antagonists. Tap into your ability to be evil, cunning and despicable and have a blast doing it!
