Zach Gilford Discusses Improvising on the Set of Friday Night Lights
One of the many things that makesFriday Night Lights unique
is that the actors are not bound to completely pre-scripted dialog. Actors are
given a breakdown of what’s meant to happen in a scene and then allowed to
improvise–working off of their fellow actors’ words and actions with a freedom
that is very uncommon in prime time drama.
In a recent interview, Zach Gilford spoke about the benefits
of being allowed to go with his gut on set. See what he had to say in this
exclusive video clip:
Friday Night Lights airs on Fridays at 8:00 PM on NBC.
