Peter Visits With Students at His Alma Mater – Atlantic Acting, NYC

Peter stopped by Atlantic Acting School on Sat. Dec 7th & spoke with students about his experiences in film, television and theater as well as auditioning, work ethic, and being in the moment. Peter discussed his experiences on Twilight and Glee, and what it means to be able to do what he loves.   A few of his views to the students during the event included:

“Know your character so well that your lines will almost become improvisational.”

“I love creating the back story”, on bringing more life to his characters than what’s just on the page, “The backstory is a moment in time that’s truthful, the audience may not be aware, but it’s important to me.”

Below is a short clip of Peter speaking to the group of students (video by @AtlanticActing).
