Acting Ghosts: Haunted By Your Last Role?

The real problem with ‘ghosts’ is not having anyone believe you. But the experience of it can still be very real. And its impacts on your own mental and physical health, and your valued relationships can be severe.

I’m referring to a range of actors’ experiences – from not feeling your ‘everyday’ self after a show, to the shock/surprise of reacting as ‘the character’ to everyday life and family stresses, to being traumatised or fatigued by the emotional and physical demands of a role.
