Your points are understood and well taken. But, it seems that the final conclusion from your text is that acting, of this sort, is not and can never be an artform. Simplistically, any the creation of art means the manipulation of a subject (whatever form that may be) into something new - even if only slightly. I don't even know if it is possible for human beings to accomplish this non-art unless simply reading lines of text stoically from a dictionary. Any artist can be learned from even if it is to only understand or review one's own basic concepts of creativity and exploration. Sometimes even the review of the mundane or arbitrary can bring one new starting points or perspectives into onesself.

I am in agreement that the writer's and director's expositions are of most interest here but I am not so quick as to completely discount the actors point of view. I don't recall hearing any actors commentary during any of the episode runs. I must review.

Finally, it would be of interest to me to hear any of SMG's comments regarding the character, I am not privy to those you mentioned, thanks for the info.
