The words and wisdom of Constantin Stanislavski:

There is far more bad taste in the world than good. In the place of nobility a sort of showiness has been created, prettiness in place of beauty, theatrical effect in the place of expressiveness. . . . The very worst fact is that cliches will fill up every empty spot in a role, which is not already solid with living feeling.

An actor must protect him/herself most conscientiously against such devices. (AP)
