Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Lesson 316. The title of today's lesson is
"Don't Say Actor When You Should Say Character." Okay. Let's take a look at the
note here. If you say the word actor or use the actor's name and say he died in
a movie , it literally means the real actor died while making the movie. So
most of time when a student may say this or someone says it, they don't
really mean that. They just mean that their character died
in the movie. Unfortunately there have been a few cases where some real actors
did die making a movie, but it's very, very rare. It doesn't happen very often. But
when you're making the mistake, that's not really what you mean. You just
mean that their character died before the story ended. Okay. So let's take a
look here at the note. Of course you know , with the X that's wrong and with
the check that's correct. So the first one is wrong. My favorite actor died at the
end of that movie. No. Of course you, you should say the character played by my
favorite actor died at the end of that movie. Okay. That's the way you would say
that. Or here's one where you would say an actor's name. You know we'll just use
Brad Pitt as an example. So of course with the X this is wrong. Brad Pitt died
in that movie. If you say Brad Pitt died in that movie, unfortunately that would
mean that the real true actor died and we know that did not happen. So the
correct way to say it would be Brad Pitt's character died in that movie. Yes. That's
the way you should say it. All right. And last one here. At the end of Hamlet, you
know the Shakespeare play. Several actors died. No.
At the end of Hamlet , several characters died. Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. I
hope it's clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
