Sandlan says "The Meisner Technique is the most brilliant way to ground an actor with fundamentals while also allowing the actor to function from their vulnerability and full emotional range." He states "Most actors in this country do not train. They are lazy and have no technique. If you want to be taken seriously as an artist you must commit yourself to your craft."
