Backstage.com has in interesting article about Michael Emerson, who gives good tips on how to go about acting. Heck, it’s good advice for any career. Michael Emerson, you rock!

6 Secrets to Building an Acting Career from Michael Emerson

Theater and screen actor Michael Emerson may have uncovered the mystery to success: There is no right way. “This is one of those tricky businesses where there are a lot of intangibles and a lot of different ways of going about it.” His career may not have taken off until his 40s, but he’s making up for lost time with back-to-back TV hits: first as Ben, the memorable leader of the Others on “Lost,” and now as the mysterious billionaire Harold Finch on “Person of Interest.”

Emerson didn’t want to jump in to just any show after “Lost”—he wanted the right show. So when the pilot he and “Lost” co-star Terry O’Quinn were developing with Bad Robot was put on hold, Emerson was ready to consider other Bad Robot projects. “I didn’t want to jump into anything too soon. I also didn’t want years to go by before I showed my face again.” When he read the script for “Person of Interest,” the intelligent, fast-paced writing, and mysterious, multi-layered, complex characters erased any reservations he may have had about returning to TV.

Emerson shares how to create characters you want to watch and how to navigate career delays.

Training is never a waste.
Emerson says that despite the long road, “I don’t regret a moment of my stage training;” it not only taught him how to create character and deliver lines, but also provided the opportunity to develop a strong work ethic. In Emerson’s mind, the actor’s main responsibility is to deliver the words. “A lot of my work is analyzing, analyzing, analyzing the script, the text I’ve been given, the lines I have to say and thinking how they best work…how they are most real, but also the most stylized or artful.”

Learn to roll with the punches.
With little information to go on for either of his TV shows, Emerson learned to just roll with the story. “In a way it’s better if you’re not too aware of the longer arc or where things are going, because then you might begin to play [in] things prematurely or you might start trying to steer things in certain ways.” So he focuses on staying in the present. “Which is a funny thing to say since I’m on shows that are always bouncing around between the past and the future. That to me, particularly on ‘Lost,’ was the best way for me to negotiate all that inter-dimensionality: flashing forward, sideways, and back all the time.”

Mystery is good.
Emerson has played a number of mysterious characters in his career and his role as Harold on “Person of Interest” is no exception. He likes keeping the emotions hidden in layers. “I really do subscribe to mystery. The actors I like best are those who I just cannot figure out or sometimes I just can’t figure out the way they talk or why they talk that way. It makes me listen.”

Keep the stakes high.
Emerson is a master at intense scenes. “I like scenes where I’m in a very still, small space with someone very dangerous and there’s a bit of cat and mouse going on. We’re trying to read each other but the stakes are terribly high, like playing chess with Enrico Colantoni when he was our villain.”

Leave your comfort zone.
Emerson has excelled in many physical scenes that forced him out of his safety zone, like some of the high-speed car chase scenes and even handling weapons. But ironically, one of his most challenging moments was his first on-screen kiss. Luckily it was with his real-life wife, Carrie Preston, who plays Grace the love of his life (and the one who got away) on the show.

Don’t be desperate.
“The thing to get rid of is that you are the beggar at the gate, that you are the powerless and helpless eager youngster wanting a crumb from the big table,” Emerson says. “It’s a bad mindset and it doesn’t help you to audition well.” Confidence is important: “At some point, you have to empower yourself and say ‘You know what, I’m good at this.’”

Ardent Michael Emerson fans know that he is a Luddite at heart. Carrie Preston, in a recent interview with Zap2it confirmed it to the fans with an additional cute anecdote:

There are so many not-so-fictional storylines on this show, is there ever any technology paranoia that Michael brings home with him after three seasons?
He’ll say things like, “Well, you know, Harold Finch would say that I need to change my password right now.” [ laughs] He has been changing his passwords on a lot of his things just to shake it up. He changed his email address to something that wasn’t specific to his own name. I think part of it has rubbed off on him a little bit. Now, you have to remember that Michael is — or maybe you don’t know — but Michael, I wouldn’t say he’s technically savvy. [ laughs] Sometimes he’s a bit of luddite.
I kind of dragged him into the digital age out of necessity. If it was up to him, he would still be sitting in a library somewhere reading a book. It’s very cute to introduce him to the world of technology. I’m always the one he turns to for computer advice and for iPhone advice. Everything that has anything to do with technology, I’m always the one that’s in charge of that in the household. It’s ironic.

For your reading pleasure, I’m including the entire interview. In it, Carrie Preston talks about her new scenes in the April 29, episode of Person of Interest title “Beta.”

The next conflict on ”Person of Interest” hits very close to home when Greer uses Harold Finch’s former fiancee Grace Hendricks to draw him out of hiding. That means two very important things: Carrie Preston is returning in Season 3, episode 21 “Beta,” and she will no longer be playing a flashback version of her character.
During a recent phone interview, Zap2it spoke with Preston about her return to “Person of Interest” and the effect starring on the show has had on her real-life husband, Michael Emerson. Spoiler alert: It’s pretty adorable.
Zap2it: How was this episode a different experience from the earlier times you’ve been on “Person of Interest”?
Carrie Preston: One of the main differences is this episode is not flashback. We’re not going back to a time where we’re having to set the relationship and give the audience some exposition about how Grace and Harold got together. That brings us into the current chaos of where the show is right now with what’s going on with Harold and his world and his Machine and the competition with Samaritan and all that stuff. Harold’s efforts to protect Grace from danger are not fully successful.
She currently thinks he is dead, so can we expect there to be any complications with the fact he is actually alive and needs to save her?
His number one priority is to protect her, and so that is not going to change. He is definitely going to do everything that he can to make sure she’s OK. And whether or not he’s successful at that is what you have to tune in to see.
Do you think there’s any hope for him and Grace to have some sort of happy ending?
One would hope, and I know that’s the hope that he’s holding onto. He’s such an interesting, mysterious character, it’s always so wonderful to see any personal side to him. Anything that’s revealed about his past or feelings, everything is a little nugget not only to the audience but to the characters around Harold Finch who find him to be super mysterious.
I don’t know what the writers have in store, but they do want to tease things out. If everything was a happy ending, then they would have nowhere to go. I think there’s something that we all relate to with that kind of star-crossed lovers conflict. It’s age-old in storytelling, and I think it just makes the audience root for him and root for the two of them.
And root for you coming back more.
Yes, exactly. [ laughs] I wish for that too.
There are so many not-so-fictional storylines on this show, is there ever any technology paranoia that Michael brings home with him after three seasons?
He’ll say things like, “Well, you know, Harold Finch would say that I need to change my password right now.” [ laughs] He has been changing his passwords on a lot of his things just to shake it up. He changed his email address to something that wasn’t specific to his own name. I think part of it has rubbed off on him a little bit.
