Estelle Parsons on acting

But theater is terribly important. I mean you have to exercise all of your instrument, your emotional skills and everything. It’s important for actors to be in the theater. Nowadays, there are people who just do TV, and I don’t really call them actors, you know? If you’re not able to fill up a theater and entertain people for two or three hours, who are you? You’re a puppet!
