According to the author, we shall notice that we can not talk anymore about the difference between the author created drama character and its original image in the reality. We don't know when in the field of aesthetics we should consider only the art and when also the source of art - the nature itself. However, we require students to named and be able to describe different schools of art, styles, and eras that are nothing less but a desperate attempt to find the truth in a drama character on the stage. The author attempts to view an actor as an object (as well as a tool) commonly used by theatre experts and critics, who increasingly view the actor as an interpreter of different schools of art, styles, and eras rather than as talented interpreter of his/her own inner feelings and emotional state. The result is the loss of focus on the uniqueness of individual interpretational skills of the actor - creator. This author argues that the character coming to life through actor's actions depends on the contemporary understanding of the theatre.
