Yesterday I saw a TED by accident. It was Adam Driver telling his story.
I first saw Adam Driver in Girls, me like many other. His character in the series made me think he would never to become more than a Girls character.
Then I saw him in the Star Wars movie and he kind of grew on me. I could really see both the light and the darkness in his character. I could relate to it. Great acting.
From that moment on I wanted to see more of Adam Driver och this video helped me to get at better understanding. To me his story makes sense and he is a great storyteller. Not surprisingly!
The surprise has to do with his way of speaking. When he speaks it’s like he is waiting for us, the audience, to catch up. He’s waiting for a rapport, did they get it? What I’m saying? Can I move on? Because he is already somewhere else in his mind. Fascinating stuff.
His TED ends with the monolog “I’m not Batman” performed by Marco Ramirez. The monolog starts out not very interesting but as with all good art it catches my attention. A really great performance and message.
I can really recommend the video to anyone. I was not expecting much but it was really good.
