comment How can I make an actor cry?
I'd like to suggest you edit your question to address a specific problem you've been faced with, instead of a theoretical what-if. Your talent are willing collaborators, and if you're trying to "make them cry", then you're mistakenly treating them like props. Did you try communicating with them to show them why you were after a certain performance? How did that go? My second suggestion is to read Judith Weston's "Directing Actors", which even has a section dedicated to dealing with child actors, who may not understand your motivations as well as a trained adult.
